On June 23 Veronica & The Red Wine Serenaders released a new album titled "The Mexican Dress" (Distribution Audioglobe.) Is the fifth studio album for the formation of Lombardy who, over the years, has become a solid reality in the European music scene as part of the blues, ragtime, folk and country blues.
The Mexican Dress was recorded in part in the United States in the Pacific Studios in Tacoma, Seattle by Mark Simmons, and partly in Italian studies at SuonoVivo, Dario Raveli, also responsible for the final mix done in such a way as to maintain the most unchanged dynamics of the acoustic sound. The result is an amazing job and extremely varied.
In fact, in the lineup for the first time there are some original compositions written by Max De Bernardi and Veronica Sbergia with the support of Denny Hall, leader of the American band "The Nite CafР№", as well as a handful of traditional pieces replicated with taste and originality, for a total of fourteen tracks plus a "lost track".
They range from swing jazz with veins of the title track (one of the original pieces written by Max and Veronica), the sound thin and typically 20's of 'The Weed Smoker's Dream' (blues in minor forerunner of the popular "Why do not you do right "played in 1936 by the Harlem Hamphats Tom Dorsey) and "Dope Head Blues" (Victoria Spivey). The atmosphere typical of Vaudeville so dear to the band, re-echo "Who's that knocking at my door" (a classic from the repertoire of Hannette Hanshaw) and fun "Caught us doin 'it" (Hokum Boys) then returns to the sound most blues songs like "Didn 't mean a thing" and "Gloryland" (both written by Denny Hall) and even "Banana in your fruitbasket" (Bo Carter). Do not miss the vintage flavor as sweet ballads "Crying Time" (Max and Veronica) and "Shine on Harvest Moon" (known Tin Pan Alley tune the '10s). The usual homage to the rural gospel is present with the revision of the traditional song "Paul and Silas" with an arrangement that pays homage to the guitar style of the great Blind Reverend Gary Davis. But the real news in the repertoire is represented by an instrumental piece signed by Max De Bernardi with the mysterious title "The Resurrection of the Honey Badger" and, last but not least, the ballad "Curse The Day" in true Irish style - with lots of uilleann pipe - signed Denny Hall.
In the end, after a 25 second pause is inserted a piece of the almost unknown Papa Charlie Jackson, "Baby Please Loan me your heart", and with the sound of the 6-string banjo and clarinet - brilliantly played by Joel Tepp, who has worked with artists Denny 'O Kiefe and Bonnie Raitt - is the perfect finale for "The Mexican Dress".
