Lounging on the rooftop of an Alhambra-esque Airbnb he and his brother-in-law Graham Williams of Resound Presents procured over Christmas break in Mérida, Yucatán, Adrian Quesada revealed plans to sequel Jaguar Sound. Released the previous month, November 2022, the all-instrumental companion to his solo debut Boleros Psicodélicos six months earlier fuses cultures with the same magical realism. Founder guitarist of both Grammy-winning Latin big band Grupo Fantasma and six-string spin-off Brownout, Quesada overlaid his long-running Mayan jaguars obsession with stealthy psych, leonine grooves, and razor-sharp riffs. Previewing its Austin Blues Festival bow the following afternoon, this full–album sneak peak should howl.
