*** 1/2 Dr. Loco's Rockin' Jalapeno Band, "Barrio Ritmos & Blues," Dr. Loco Productions. Top-notch musicians turn the inherent pain of the Chicano experience into a joyful record of bilingual celebration, with exhilarating results. No musical stone is left unturned by the one-of-a-kind Dr. Loco, who manages a seamless fusion of Mexican and Anglo cultures. Overflowing with laid-back, jazzy funk, these tunes would make the current version of Santana go green with envy.
