Lalo Guererro's "Los Chucos Suaves" is perhaps the definitive recording in the short-lived Los Angeles sub-genre of Pachuco music, the sounds which emanated from the Mexican youth sub-culture of the same name in the late 1940s. A hybrid of American jazz, pop, and Latin American rhythms, with songs sung in Spanish and dense in Chicano slang, the movement was an intriguing sub-plot in rock and roll history. On the flip is a terrific rendition of The Champs' "Tequila," sung in Spanish, with a loose, jazzy approach.
