Biography

Los Super Seven is a predominantly Latin American supergroup which debuted in 1998. Organized by manager Dan Goodman, the collective has issued three albums to date, with wildly varying personnel; no one player features on all three releases with the exception of Ruben Ramos, (aka El Gato Negro, an American Tejano music performer).
The group won a Grammy Award for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album in 1999 for its self-titled album. Their musical style has changed with each incarnation, blending sounds from Tejano, mariachi, Cuban, Afro-Peruvian, Brazilian, blues, rhythm and blues, country, jazz and rock. The personnel included the members of The Texas Tornados, Los Lobos, Calexico, Ozomatli, and other famed musicians.

Los Super Seven is a studio album released by supergroup Los Super Seven. It was released in September 15, 1998 by RCA Nashville. Freddy Fender and Flaco Jiménez, both from Texas Tornados, formed Los Super Seven, along Joe Ely, Rick Trevino, David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas (of the Los Lobos' fame), and Tejano vocalist Ruben Ramos. The album peaked at number-one in the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart and reached top ten in the Billboard Top Latin Song chart. Los Super Seven earned them the Grammy Award for Best Mexican-American Performance at the 41st Grammy Awards. A portion of the proceeds of the album were destined to the National Council of La Raza a non-profit organization that represents Latino interests and causes.
