Album Notes
“Dulcinea” by

Los Angeles and California mean so many things to so many people.
Chuck Berry’s Promised Land, Bukowski’s L.A. from a forgotten era,
East L.A., Hollywood, South Central, Deserts, Beaches, Oil Fields and Orchards.
What does music sound like from a place like this?

To it’s warm embrace and fertile ground were drawn Dust Bowl refugees, migrant farmers, cowboys, and blue bloods alike, bringing with them the rhythms and soul of home. What grew was Bakersfield Country, West Coast Jazz, Western Swing, Mexican Border Radio, Country/Rock etc….

Dulcinea was the idealized woman of Don Quixote’s imagination.
Referring to someone as your “Dulcinea” implies hopeless devotion.
Love and music are a bit like that, an idealized never-ending journey.
It’s never quite as you imagine (usually harder).
But so much more than you could have guessed.

These songs describe this sort of musical and romantic crossing.
From a Georgia rain to a serendipitous passing on a New Orleans streetcar,
From Las Cruces, New Mexico to the Louisiana Gulf Coast, from L.A. to Mexicali. Listen closely and you’ll hear it. Wade through the textures, styles, and genres and you’ll feel it until you end up back home.

Nothing need be said about the musicians who joined us. Look at the names. Listen and know the joy we had in making this journey.

Que Padre!
Grab a bottle of tequila, call some friends, crank up the Tremoloco CD and you’ve got a party. This CD has a great mix of country, Tex/Mex, and even a little Cajun thrown in- make sure you have space for dancing. A ton of talented musicians have contributed to this CD, including members of Los Lobos and The Lowrider Band Just don’t drink too much tequila or you might get a little weepy during “In A Georgia Rain.”

I find myself humming these songs in my head often. I often judge music by how it affects me in different ways and whether it gets better and better the more I listen to it. This is defintely the case with this music. I love all the songs-hard to say which is my favorite. There is something for everyone in this collection. It is a great CD!!!

Ersatz Uncle Tupelo, BUT on the border no less! I love it!

Mexican Americana/Latin Alternative Folk
Your eclectic genres punch through brilliantly (tex-mex, americana, folk, cumbias, cajun). Mixing multiple genres for style recognition is not always easy, you do it very well. Slide on “Drinking For Two” awesome! Cohesive and captivating lyrics, so true to life, universal, and easy to connect with. The caliber of musicianship doesn’t get better! Your songs have beautiful structure and great dynamics that create tons of emotion and connectedness to the listener. Awesome instrumentation. They have tons of placement potential in film and TV. Very polished with superb production and engineering. Well done!


Yes this CD is fun, catchy, danceable and very listenable (I love it) but what's most impressive is the album as a whole. At first it may seem like just a fun mix of styles and genres but after repeated listening it reveals a lot more. The songs on this CD tell their stories in a very literate way. Even the beautiful instrumentals like Cowboy's Lullaby (Dulce's Dream) conjure up lovely and serene images. If you listen closely the title (Dulcinea) will make sense as will the beautiful front and back cover art. How something so diverse can be cohesive musically, lyrically and even visually is quite an acclomplishment! It just gets better and better the more I listen and for me that has always been the mark of a great record. And as if the amazing collection of contributing musicians and their performances aren't enough I find the writing genuine, sometimes funny, romantic though not corny and a bit like short stories I would read over and over again. Okay, so I'm a bit of a bookworm geek still I cannot recommend this recording enough! Do yourself a favor and buy it right away!!!

For Your Next Tequila Swilling Fiesta!!
I just had the pleasure of listening to this CD from beginning to end several times while on the road and this is really good stuff. One of my benchmarks for a great CD is that I thoroughly enjoy each track with no clear standouts or favorites - just as one song ends the next one continues and builds on the musical groove. Just as we've grown to love the musical diversity of LL, this CD is a mixing pot of musical styles, intertwining a country sound with accordians, percussion, tex-mex, americana, folk, blues, corridos etc. I particularly enjoyed the layers of different instruments on many tracks, with subtle tastes of accoridan, pedal steel, fiddle and other instruments poking through.

Anyway, I really recommend ya'll check this out - it's rare these days you get to enjoy real music written, performed and produced by real musicians and this one won't disappoint.

Even though they are from East Los Angeles and have close ties to Los Lobos, there are few repertoires that scream "Gulf Coast" like Tremoloco's. No matter whether the language is Spanish or English; the style honky-tonk, Tex-Mex or rock and roll; the dance a two-step, zydeco stomp or slow drag, Tremoloco plays it with a mastery that makes most of our local honky-tonk heroes sound like weekend warriors at best. The accordions whir, the guitars smoke and the blues is the blues no matter the language. To properly listen to 'Loco's magnificent debut, Dulcinea, one needs the clinking of ice in glasses, the low barroom hubbub of voices and laughter and the occasional Freddy Fender "ay-yay-yay." The material ranges from the hilarious "Mi Novela" (my soap opera), in which a macho husband can't get enough of the daily Latin television dramas, to "Tremoloco," a super-cool instrumental track that should be on a tape loop in every bedroom in America where clothes are on the floor and the sheets are tangled. With Los Lobos drummer Cougar Estrada, Dave Alvin alum Rick Shea on guitars and Tony Zamora's earthy lyrics and vocals, this band should rapidly become favorites here in H-Town, where belt buckle polishing is part of the genetic code. Throw Tremoloco on the jukebox anywhere between Los Skarnales and Clifton Chenier, between Freddy Fender and Los Lobos, between Ruben Ramos and Bill Black's Combo, and you're on Tremoloco's musical terra firma, a robust Tex-Mexican Americana.


yes you should buy this one.
this is how i can tell i love "dulcinea": it's not enough to have the songs come up every so often on ipod shuffle, i have to have the actual cd in the car so i can play my favorites repeatedly (and learn to sing along)plus read every word in the liner notes. when i notice i am walking around the house singin "if you must dance the devil's two step, at least stop playin with that gun!" i know it's official i love it. this music is a 'lil bit of everything and i bet if you like latin or country or cajun or instumental or rockin or gentle music you will fall in love with it. great lyrics, i even love the instrumentals, the packaging is also beautiful, and the line up of talent on this cd is insanely live a little buy it already!
