From our Purveyors of Music:
We make no secret of our great love for both the man and the music of John Bergstrom. We look forward to each performance, every new song and album, and any opportunity to share on KHTS radio's "Around the Barn." John, and his wife Diane, play important roles here at OutWest too - they are our cheerleaders and volunteers assisting or performing at many of our events including The Buckaroo Book Shop during the annual Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival.
You might think that a review of a new CD of Mr. Bergstrom's could not be written, then, without bias. Not true! We play Butterfield Stage frequently and enjoy it each time. It is an album of stories of California and the West. Original songs make up the majority of the album (10 of the 13) and they are love songs to California, the Horse, the Silver Screen, and to our Western History. James Dolan, Snowshoe Thompson, Black Bart, Roy Rogers, and Salomon Pico all make fine musical subjects - and we get a history lesson too.
Bergstrom chooses 2 songs by others - Dave Stamey's "The Bandit Joaquin" and Michael Fleming's "On California Ground." Both powerful pieces that are aptly chosen to accompany his original songs. One cannot help but notice the great production quality with performances by top musicians Tom Corbett on mandolin, John Nelson on classic guitar and banjo, David Jackson on bass and accordion, Eric Bergstrom on violin, and the vocals of Gency Brown.
With that said...I must admit that my favorite piece is the very last one...a sweet song of remembrance and a tribute to Bergstrom's dad - Al Bergstrom. From the CD notes: "He gained a measure of fame with his accordion throughout Southern California and was even knightedby the King of Sweden for preserving Swedish culture..." Enjoy this final
track "The Last Song," a waltz that captures the son's love for his father and the family's musical legacy. Listen closely ... hear his dad's accordion?
This is not just Western music - its great music.
