Tejano Nation has learned that Tejano music icon Jimmy Gonzalez has passed away. He was 67. The co-founder of six-time Grammy winning group Mazz died at a San Antonio hospital Wednesday morning, according to his family.


According to the Brownsville Herald, promotions manager Eloy Leija said Gonzalez died at 9:57 a.m. after dealing with medical issues.

This is a developing story. Tejano Nation will have more details as they become available.

Gonzalez formed one of the most powerful partnerships in Tejano music history with Joe Lopez for legendary group Mazz. He was the band’s chief songwriter and producer that generated many unforgettable hits. Mazz was a sensation from its inception in 1978. The success continued until the fall of 1998, when the pair parted ways.

Gonzalez continued producing many more hits for Mazz over the last twenty years.

Jimmy Gonzalez Y Grupo Mazz released their last album, Porque Todavia Te Quiero, on April 6.
