Quintanilla Jr - still busy in the music biz

 in 1993. Watching the crisp, sharp, rare footage on a screen that extended from the floor to the ceiling and listening to the music on a kick-butt surround sound system sent chills up this writer’s spine, not to mention the goose bumps and the lump in my throat at reliving this historical musical event.

All this is the work of songwriter, now head of the video department, Rick Vela, a former Dino, graph artist Frank Gallegos plus Grammy Award winning Manny Guerra protégé, Brian “Red” Moore mixing each audio production.

And speaking of audio productions, a feather in Quintanilla’s cap, and a credit to his reputation, is “Música de Mi Abuelo.” The CD, which consists of valses, huapanos, polkas, shotis’ and redovas performed by Narciso Martínez, Bruno Víllarreal, Pedro Ayala and other founding fathers of conjunto music are a jewel to behold and listen to, as not re-mixed, but superbly, digitally re-recorded. The musicians on this gem are Felipe Pérez, accordion; Jesse García, bajo sexton; Moore, bass; and Daniel Flores on drums. This CD is Quintanilla’s musical educational gift to this generation and many generations to follow.

As for the original Dinos, Quintanilla says someone recently found several lost tapes at Sugarhill Recording Studios in Houston and sent those to him. So is there a Los Dinos “lost tapes” CD in the future? Only he knows and one thing is certain – that Quintanilla will never cease to surprise us.

As for Selena’s museum, her father says last year over 26,000 people viewed the many numerous exhibits, but I bet they didn’t get to see Quintanilla's private collection of metal automobile replicas and his collection of “homies.” Or the large space where a team of graphics artists are working on creating the artwork for future posters and CDs plus silk-screening tee-shirts for Q Productions artists, plus any other band that needs this service.
