The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, has undergone three distinct phases since it was founded in Miami in 1989—an initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ‘90s. A long hiatus started in 2003 when the musicians each went their way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 was held long enough for them to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary recently.
Like the band’s entire body of music, this album cannot be boxed into a single category. The songs are as diverse as Latin America and as cohesive as the ideal of the American melting pot. To season this rich musical paella, The Mavericks add their signature country/rock/Tex-Mex flavors and a refreshing spontaneity. En Español flips the band’s usual fusion formula, which adds a striking assortment of genres – salsa, ska, norteño, mariachi, and much more – to its sturdy rock/country base. The foundation is solidly Latin with streaks of irreverent rock and twangy guitars, all branded with the unmistakable Mavericks style.
