The Westside Horns®
The original West Side Horns, Rocky Morales (tenor sax), Louie Bustos (tenor, baritone sax) and Charlie McBirney (trumpet), started working together, off and on, in the '60s, before the crew had a name. While they consistently worked various gigs, together and apart, the horns gained their moniker, and an international identity among those who read the small print on album covers, via their work with Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers. When McBirney left the road, trumpeter Al Gomez stepped in. They are all about Conjunto, Tejano, Jazz, and the Blues.
