Ry Cooder's 'Chavez' Suite
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Ry Cooder has quietly shown his prowess as a gifted musical jack-of-all-trades.
His latest release, Chavez Ravine, is a concept album dealing with the demise of the Mexican-American Los Angeles neighborhood of Chavez Ravine. The area was irrevocably transformed by the arrival of the Los Angeles Dodgers stadium.
