Your terrific piece on Javier Olivares only fails to mention that his greatness as a musician was surpassed by his warmth, unselfishness, and affability. Many artists claim to be modest and even shy, but Javier was the real deal, and one of the kindest human beings I have been honored to know. You get a peek at his terrific sense of humor in the songs he sang, which Fito wrote with Javier's voice in mind. Together, Javier, Fito, Jaime and brother in law Jacinto, were a musical juggernaut, so much so that Billboard correspondent Ramiro Burr correctly named them one of the 10 most influential Latino artists of the 20th Century. This was amazing in light of the fact that, while they never turned down a photograph or autograph request, they were never self-promoters, really and truly letting the music speak for itself.
Believe it or not, after 30 musical years together, the bond between the Olivares brothers was as strong as over. In their case, family really did always come first and always. Sounds too good to be true? Then, unfortunately, you've never met the brothers.
Surely one of the best vocalists of his time, Javier's unhurtful, gentle soul has been a precious gift to the great melodious spirit that united the oneness of us all.
