Paul Ely Smith: Music

Before the Next Teardrop Falls, from "Going Nowhere" (2013)

(Shiloh Sharrard)
2013
Freddy Fender
I wanted Shiloh to put this one on her CD after I heard a live recording she did of it. I think Shiloh can deliver country music in Spanish better than anyone else I've heard. Steve Penoncello gave us an authentic Norteño accordion sound, though he was born and raised in the Midwest American accordion tradition. Shayne Watkins on acoustic guitar, me on piano, Richard Kriehn on mandolin, Solé Farr on bass. Alane Watkins sang harmony.
