Album Notes
From Biography
In the spring of 2010 Roger Velasquez released his second solo album Toma Mi Corazon for V-Discos. Toma Mi Corazon is a collection of Roger’s favorites, which include seven original songs. Roger displays his musical knowledge in the arrangements of all ten pieces, but not without help from eight time Grammy Award Winning Producer Gilbert Velasquez and friends Jimmy Edward and David Lee Garza.
“ My music is given to you straight from the heart, in hopes that we can share in the joy and suffering that unites us as human beings.” Always from the heart, the work of Roger Velasquez and the Latin Legends never misses a beat in satisfying the listener. “I invite one and all to join with me in the celebration of life, love, and the pursuit of music.”

By Hector Saldaña - Express-News Web Posted: 08/27/2009 12:00 CDT
"Velasquez's music roots — and attitude — date to the Latin Breed, one of the all-time classic San Antonio Chicano bands. He was one of their lead singers.

With its nine-piece sound, his Latin Legends offer soulful grit.

“What happening in what they call the Tejano scene now, it's another trip,” said Velasquez, whose musical heroes are Little Joe y la Familia and the late Randy Garibay's Los Blues.

“Tejano has been watered down. It's nothing compared to what Little Joe is doing, what Ruben Ramos is doing, what we're doing. We're taking it to the people.”

Though he can be a harsh critic, Velasquez is also one of Tejano's — or at least what he considers Tejano — toughest defenders.

“The music that we play is a true American art form. It needs to be in the Smithsonian,” said Velasquez, 45.

“I compare it to the jazz of New Orleans. The Chicano music that we play is jazz and it's pop and it's got influences from so many genres because that's who we are as a people. We grew up speaking English. We grew up listening to Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power and groups like Los Blues.”
