What Does Redfox Say?
James T Baker is a fantastic bluesman who is often overlooked and in past frank conversations with SFR, even if the truth hurts, has made plenty of valid points. Now, we arenâ€™t saying that everything he discussed has magically been remedied, but it seems that Baker is not only back in Santa Fe, but is picking up a few more gigs than had previously been acceptable. Baker plays a gritty sort of Delta blues accessible only to blind dudes before now, and he brings the multi-talented Raven Redfox along for the ride. Duel Brewing has quietly been making a name for themselves by treating musicians right, and itâ€™s nice to see theyâ€™re including an unsung local hero; a man who gets back to the roots of blues music with beautiful acoustic guitar sans the wanky solos and absolute tedium that normally constitute Santa Feâ€™s 12 bar snooze-a-rama.
