redbone – the very best (1991)


Redbone – The Very Best (1991)



Redbone is a Native American rock group that was most active in the 1970s. They reached the Top5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1974 with the song, “Come and Get Your Love”.

Formed in 1968  Los Angeles, California, by the brothers Patrick Vasquez (bass and vocals) and Lolly Vasquez (guitar and vocals), the name Redbone itself is a joking reference to a Cajun term for a mixed-race person, the band’s members being of mixed blood ancestry. The band referenced Cajun and New Orleans culture many times in their lyrics and performing style. Pat and Lolly had previously performed and recorded under the stage surname Vegas, in part to downplay the Latin American association of their birth surname, Vasquez.

Redbone played primarily rock music with R&B, Cajun,Jazz, tribal, and Latin roots. Their first commercial success came with the single “Maggie” from their second album, Potlatch, in 1970, and two other hit singles followed – “The Witch Queen of New Orleans” (1971, #21 on the Billboard Hot 100) and “Come and Get Your Love” (1974, #5 on the Billboard Hot 100). “Come and Get Your Love”, written by Lolly Vasquez stayed in the Billboard chart for 24 weeks, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. on 22 April 1974.

Lolly Vasquez was one of the first guitarists to make extensive use of the distinctive Leslie rotating speaker effect in his electric guitar amplification set-up. Vegas played improvised, jazz-influenced guitar. Drummer Peter DePoe (born 1943,  Neah Bay, Washington) is credited with pioneering the “King Kong” style of drumming, which features sharply accented polyrhythms involving the bass and snare drums and is similar to funk styles of drumming. The band referred to DePoe’s “King Kong Beat” in their lyrics to the song “Prehistoric Rhythm” on their debut album.

In 1973 Redbone released the politically oriented “We Were All Wounded at Woumded Knee”, recalling the massacre of   Lakota Sioux Indians by theSeventh Cavalry in 1890. The song ends with the subtly altered sentence “We were all wounded by  “Wounded Knee”. The song reached the #1 chart position in Europe but did  chart in the U.S. where it was initially withheld from release and then banned by several radio stations. Original drummer Peter DePoe left to be replaced by Butch Rillera. Following this the band achieved much of their commercial success. Tony Bellamy (guitar, piano and vocals) was later forced to retire due to illness.

The band’s current remaining membership is led by Pat Vegas alone (Lolly left in 1995, Tony Bellamy sometime after that), Raven Hernandez (guitar, vocals and songwriter) joined Redbone in 1996 to replace Lolly Vegas after he suffered a stroke that left him unable to tour with the band. Although Redbone has had some limited activity in recent years, their songwriting and touring output is slight compared with that of the early 1970s. A proposed reunion tour in 2003 did not occur.

Redbone was inducted into the Native American Music Association Hall of Fame in 2008.

tin hat trio – book of silk


Tin Hat Trio – Book Of Silk (2004)



Tin Hat (formerly the Tin Hat Trio ) is an acoustic chamber music group currently based in San Francisco. Their music combines many genres of music, including southernblues, bluegrass, neoclassical, eastern European folk music, and avant-garde.

Since its formation in 1997, the original Tin Hat Trio has often expanded its trio format by inviting other musicians to join them. All five of their CDs feature guests, among themMike Patton, Tom Waits and Willie Nelson as well as friends like clarinetist Ben Goldberg and harpist, Zeena Parkins. Parkins appears on 2002’s The Rodeo Eroded and 2004’s Book of Silk and has performed live with the trio as the resident sound effects artist in their live music/silent film projects. Goldberg has been a frequent guest of Tin Hat Trio and contributed to both Memory is an Elephant and The Rodeo Eroded.

When founding member Rob Burguer (the trio’s accordionist and pianist) left the trio in late 2004, Mark Orton and  Carla kihlstedt replaced him with both Goldberg and Parkins, presenting a new, though closely related, ensemble—the Tin Hat Quartet—for two short concert tours in the U.S. in January and April 2005. Equally at home playing jazz or classical, both musicians fit easily into the Tin Hat mold as evocative performers who blur the line between improvisation and composition. While on tour, they invited another musician to come under their hat, San Francisco’s Ara Anderson—known as one of Tom Waits’ favorite sidemen in recent years. Like the departed Burger, Anderson plays myriad keyed instruments as well as trumpet and glockenspiel, thus adding new colors and strokes to the already large canvas of Tin Hat’s sound.

In [2005] Tin Hat Trio’s song Fear of the South featured on the Everything is Illuminated (film) soundtrack.
