Dave Werden Playing Chiapanecas - Video

Rate this Entry
One of my favorite solos of the late Rafael Mendez is "Chiapanecas". I first heard it in high school. He actually recorded two versions, one with his 2 sons as a trio and one as a solo.

During the concert March 10 with Oystein Baadsvik I had the chance to perform a solo. There was little time to prepare, and I wanted to choose something different in nature to what I anticipated Oystein would play, so Chiapanecas came to mind. Here is the video of the solo:

    Very nicely done--but, now I can't get the tune out of my head. I was listening to the recording at the computer last night and my wife said "Oh, I thought that was you". (She was being facetious.) I had to say no....that's Dave Werden.
