    Rick Holmstrom Blues Band

    4:24

    The Rick Holmstrom Blues Band. There's an immense amount of beautifully understated talent in these three fellas. Mavis Staples absolutely knew what she was doing when she chose Rick and bassman Jeff Turmes to join her on her amazing musical journey. It's so good to see players who work with each other under the pressure of constant touring year in and year out as these two men do yet they STILL smile at each other's talents when a sound delights their ears. They actually listen in anticipation just like we as the audience do. The longtime musical partner and equally talented Steve Mugalian is featured on drums here. Words can't describe the beauty of the setting and the music from this night. This was recorded outdoors as the sunset descended on a gorgeous, warm July night in the wine country of Paso Robles, Ca. The concert was held at a delightful jewel in the country known as the boutique winery, Vines On The Marycrest. The winery is owned by a music loving couple who truly benefit their community by offering great wine throughout the year and fantastic music by their talented friends on a few of their warm summer nights. Go if you can! **Please make use of that HD180 tool since that will make this video look much better. Enjoy this little sip of Cali goodness.



    I'm Gone was a song featured on Rick's 2002 ear catching and musically creative release Hydraulic Groove. Buy it if you can find a copy.... Blues for the avant mind :-)

    Mavis Staples - Only the lord knows, Youre not Alone, Ill Take You There Live

    13:55

    Mavis Staples is a legend, but she's not stuck in the past. You probably know her work with her family band, The Staple Singers, which was all over the radio in the '70s with hits like Respect Yourself, Let's Do It Again and I'll Take You There (which she excerpts in her performance here).

    What you may not know is that Mavis Staples has been actively working with her fellow Chicago musician (and Wilco leader) Jeff Tweedy on her upcoming album, You Are Not Alone. Tweedy produced the record and wrote a few songs for her, as well — including the title track, which she sings here.

    The album was recorded at Wilco's studio, The Loft, and it includes songs by John Fogerty, Randy Newman, Rev. Gary Davis, Allen Toussaint and Pops Staples. You Are Not Alone also features a fine guest roster, including not only Tweedy (on bass, guitar and vocals), but also Nora O'Connor, Kelly Hogan and Wilco's Patrick Sansone on keys and vibes.

    Rick Holmstrom, the skilled guitarist who accompanies Staples here, also plays on the record and in her touring band. And while You Are Not Alone doesn't come out until Sept. 14, you can get a good idea of what a treat it is by watching this stripped-down but soulful Tiny Desk Concert.

    Last video from that night. The camera started to heat up and shut itself off before the song truly ends, but most of it is here. You gotta love Mavis...she's still got it. Such a warm, gentle soul and yet has the life and energy of a teenager. Not kidding! Rick's band is the perfect backing band for her style of music.

    Twist-O-Lettz

    2:35

    One night last year I was lucky enough to be invited to watch Rick Holmstrom, Stephen Hodges and John Juke Logan do some tracking for a new CD project called Twist-O-Lettz. Here is a behind the scenes look at Ways of Action by Rick Holmstrom, John Juke Logan & Stephen Hodges from the up-coming release.

    Recorded live at Pacifica Studio in LA (Juke calls it the Soul Cauldron) by Glenn Senor Sol Nishida, these three like-minded veteran musical cohorts, cut wild and raw and live, and let it wail with nobody on bass. With bullet-mics bouncin' on the tom-toms and a space-echo named Lightnin', they sent the blues and other like-minded music through other-worldly filters, primal and whack in full effect.

    To be released by Mocombo Records in 2010.

    Critical to the Mavis Staples performance was her backing band; guitarist Rick Holmstrom, bassist Jeff Turmes and drummer Stephen Hodges. Holstrom's interplay with Mavis Staples echoed the sound of The Staples family with patriarch, Pops Staples at the helm.

    I'd been touring in a blues band since the late '80's, and a friend turned me on to Pops Staples in the mid-'90's, I used to listen to a tape of his songs while I was driving and coming down after a gig. It was quiet, airy, perfect stuff, and Pops' style just started seeping into my own songs. When I started playing with Mavis, I wanted to use some of that.
