RICARDO ARJONA — SAN JOSE 2012

13 03 2012

We’re a little more than 30 hours away from Ricardo Arjona’s latest visit to the Bay Area. The last time he visited was 2009 in San Jose’s HP Pavilion. It was a terrific show as I recall.

Arjona visits the Bay Area in 2012 under his own direction. A terrific move if you ask me. His most recent album, Independiente, was produced under his new, independent record label, Metamorfosis. and was produced with the help of Tommy Torres, who collaborated with Ricardo on 5to Piso and before that, with some of the songs off of Quien Dijo Ayer (only two songs on that were new, Quien and Quiero, and they were unreal). Anyways, in honor of his latest visit, and as a long-time fan of Ricardo, I offer my Top 5 Ricardo Arjona songs. The man has a real gift for combining lyric with feeling. It’s damn near unworldly. To me, it’s always felt like a mixture of love, pain, struggle put to some terrific composition. Wednesday will be my third Arjona show.
