Barone to be wild
Richard Barone, formerly of Hoboken's legendary Bongos and recently part of many other people's projects, is back with a soulful pop repertoire.
By DAWN EDEN
When Richard Barone
performs this Saturday, November 13, at Fez under Time Cafe, it will be his
first full-length New York live concert in three years.
No, the former
leader of Hoboken's legendary Bongos hasn't spent that time in the sandbox,
even though he is an acknowledged Brian Wilson fan. He has been doing guest
spots at shows such as the Loser's Lounge series (he is in fact producing the upcoming Loser's Lounge CD), the "Beat Goes On" series (he hosted the
"Hullaballoo" installment), and last September's Kosova Relief Fund Concert
at the Bottom Line.
He has also produced an album by "Antifolk" hero Lach
("Blang!" on Fortified Records) and contributed to several
compilations. The latter include the Kosova Relief Fund CD "Refuge"
(also featuring tracks by Melanie and Peter Gabriel, Freedy Johnston, Toshi
Reagon, and others, on Orchard Records) and the long-awaited Bobby Fuller
tribute, "Our Favorite Texan Bobby Fuller Four-Ever" (#9 Records

Barone has also been in the studio with producer Tony Visconti, working
on his first studio album since 1993's "Clouds Over Eden" (Mesa). To
anyone familiar with the artist's style, Visconti sounds like a perfect
match, having produced classic albums by such Barone favorites as T. Rex
and David Bowie.
Visconti will play bass in Barone's band at the Fez show,
along with Loser's Lounge maestro Joe McGinty on piano, downtown diva
Connie Petruc on backing vocals, Lisa Haney on cello, Tommy Goss on drums,
Rob Keith on guitar, and special guests. The latter could quite possibly
include frequent Barone collaborator Jill Sobule. Opening is another
Loser's Lounge artist, Jennifer Jackson, and the Green Rooftops, whose
drummer includes "Beat Goes On" promoter Ed Rogers.
