ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is no greater honor or feeling of accomplishment, for a musician, than when one's peers pay homage to their art. On the evening of December 2, 2018, a group of energetic music mavericks, LA•45, did just that. This electrifying band made up of 15 pieces set out to perform the hit songs of a horn band they have admired and studied for decades, paying tribute to The Latin Breed - 50th Anniversary on Tour. Without a doubt, both the baby boomers and millennial crowd were moved to the dance floor, but the cultural atmosphere opened hearts for reminiscing the music Mexican-Americans have experienced for the last five decades.

The TAKE IT TO THE TOP tribute was the brainchild of the legendary Henry "Pepsi" Peña and LA•45's Mike Torres III & John Ontiveros. Selling out months in advance, this stellar show proved that The Latin Breed's time-tested style rises to the top once again!

This LIVE recording represents the legacy of a sound born on the South-side of San Antonio and still touring America today! The Latin Breed band has secured several chapters in the history books of Tejano music for their colorful grooves, soulful vocals, and epic entertainment values. HORN BANDS RULE...are easily found written on many backstage room walls for good reason... music charted for horns in complicated, persuasive, and forceful. Tightly orchestrated bands deliver a thunder equal to a freight train... ain't no stopping that vibe!

Listen to this LIVE recording as LA•45 reaches beyond their own passion ans absorbs the power of The Latin Breed's style as fuel for future journeys toward the next level. From beginning to end, this tribute show achieved one more milestone with commitment, hard work, and respect of the Tejano culture at large. Crowded dance floors everywhere tell the same story of sentiment and satisfaction!

If knowledge is power, then the next 50 years of Tex-Mex Funk/Tejano/Soul/Chicano Vibes will keep LA•45 fresh and essential.
