New West taped a show with the SCVTV series “House Blend” hosted by Stephen Peeples on March 1st, and it is
-> now available for viewing...
On “House Blend,” Fleming, Reynoso and Jackson perform “Texas Moon” from their 1997 debut album “Texas Blues”; and “Line Rider’s Waltz” and “Buckaroo Dream” from their 2001 “Buckaroo Dream” CD.
The fourth song, “On California Ground,” is a gorgeous slice of old California history Fleming wrote for as part of a grant to the Cowboy Festival from the NEA, which commissioned songwriters to create works about California history. A CD compiling those works is out of print, and New West’s “House Blend” performance marks the first time the trio has been able to perform it live on television.
Between songs, Peeples chews the fat with Fleming, Reynoso and Jackson, and digs a little deeper into the trio’s colorful past, individually and collectively.
We hear how Fleming grew up the cowboy way, how Reynoso brings elements of his own Hispanic heritage and love for Gypsy jazz legend Django Reinhardt into his New West guitar work, and where Jackson got his huge acoustic bass, which is about half as big as he is.
The trio’s “House Blend” guest spot aired just before the 21st annual Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival April 24-27, so we also get a few fascinating tidbits about the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival’s history.
Fleming — in his other life as a supervisor for the Arts & Entertainment crew for the City of Santa Clarita — has booked and produced the festival for the past decade. (New West’s appearance there preceded his taking over that role, and Fleming hasn’t booked his own band since because it’s not the cowboy way.)
New West’s “House Blend” set also follows their sold-out and very well-received concert at the Repertory East Playhouse on Feb. 25, the latest edition of the popular “SCVTV Presents the OutWest Concert Series.”
