Al and Al Jr.: A life in music

By August March

Let me be clear. Al Hurricane rocks. He's the father—officially the Godfather—of a brand of New Mexican music that blends diffuse influences, intense intuition and massive chops into a formidable music expression that has become the stuff of legend as the years have passed. He's also the father of a cohort of talented children, including son Al Jr.—who's worked as his primary collaborator, arranger and producer since the late 1970s.
