 Patricia Vonne
-Guitars & Castanets-
By Bob Silvestri

Patricia Vonne’s new CD, Guitars & Castanets is a spunky mix of Tex-Mex rockers in the mold of the legendary Joe Ely and Alejandro Escovedo. The eleven tracks have a carefree wanderlust spirit to them and feature four sung in Spanish. Some of the sidemen on the disc include Jon Dee Graham, Michael Ramos and Charlie Sexton. Guitarist Robert LaRoche plays and co wrote most of the songs with Vonne. She dedicates three tracks to artists who inspired her music, Joe Ely on “Joe’s Gone Ridin’”, “Guitarras y Castanuelas” is dedicated to Escovedo and “Sax Maniac” to another legendary Texas performer Johnny Reno the first performer she saw live. The best song here is the relationship heartbreaker “Long Season”. Other tracks of note include “Texas Burning”, “Fiesta Sangria” and “Rebel Bride”. The disc includes the track and video “Traeme Paz” from the movie Once Upon A Time In Mexico. For more on Patricia Vonne and Guitars & Castanets go to www.patriciavonne.com
