It is often said that actions speak louder than words … yet in some cases it’s the words you speak that can cause life changing actions. SPEAK THOSE THINGS … a 3-word command, a simple statement and the powerful title to FRED HAMMOND’s upcoming new solo album.

To speak those things, is to literally speak life into situations that bring about death and decrease. “By speaking life into your problems,” said Hammond, “You allow God to hear you and God will show you the solutions.

That is the attitude of this album.”Hammond’s, “SPEAK THOSE THINGS: POL Chapter 3” addresses who God is and what He can do in our lives. It is no departure from the now “duplicated” ‘Hammond signature’ of urban praise and worship, but the approach of the album is focused on the worshipper calling on the Lord, praising Him, knowing Him and desiring to be closer to Him.

It is 15-tracks of high-impact praise & Gospel music that is aimed at changing lives and bringing about solutions.In the aftermath of last September, Hammond recalls seeking God and seeing Him work in all situations.

“In the midst of misery and hopelessness, we have to see where God is and trusting that His hand is in everything around us.” Pointedly conveying this message; and in only a way that Hammond can, is the compelling song “Show Yourself Strong.

”Directly inspired by what he saw happening around him, “America rallied together and everywhere people began to pray. This song is calling out to God … ‘Oh, Lord we’re calling you, show yourself strong’,” said Hammond.

“People everywhere began to pray and there was a time and need for prayer … I was just thinking, we need you now God, if we’ve ever needed you before we need you now.”Song after song the album serves as a reminder to turn to God no matter what the situation.

“Praise Him Through The Night,” a direct message to praise God even in the middle of adversity. “My focus is on praise & worship in the middle of the fight,” said Hammond. “Even in the toughest of times, God is always around somewhere, and I will continue to praise to Him.

” Lyrically, it is a beautiful ballad that brings about a sense of peace that supports the message that it is through praise and worship, that we rebuild our strength.In distinctive Fred Hammond fashion, the album kicks off in high gear with 2 slammin’ praise & worship cuts.

Like a 1-2 punch, “You Are My Daily Bread,” and “Lord of the Harvest,” contains that signature feel and sound that has positioned Hammond as one of Gospel music’s most successful hit makers.

Dynamic, powerful and vibrant, the songs defy any listener to stay in their seats.The feelings of encouragement and healing are palpable throughout this CD, from the collaborative “Song of Strength,” featuring the F.

Hammond Music family (Joann Rosario, The Singletons and Shea Norman); to the smooth sounding “I Will Say,” which verbalize the albums’ entire theme.Once again, teaming up with writer Kim Rutherford, Hammond hopes to capture the successful chemistry they shared on the enormously popular “Pages of Life: Chapters I & II.

” The album’s title pays homage to their writing partnership, “POL stands for Pages of Life,” explains Hammond, “and I felt the same synergy with Kim, on this album as I did then … I also knew she would be very instrumental in helping to capture the essence of this project.

” Hammond & Rutherford joined forces on such key cuts as “That Ain’t Nothin,” and “Show Me Your Face.” The latter, “Show Me Your Face,” is an R&B flava’d emotion-filled ballad that seeks a closer and unequivocal relationship with God.

The album includes a blazing collaboration with super-hot producer Warryn “Baby Dubb” Campbell. “Great,” featuring Mary Mary, declares God’s greatness. “As soon as I heard the track I wrote the song … I immediately felt it … I had to talk about all the great things God has done for us … there is no problem too great because God is greater,” said Hammond.

“Plus Warryn is a phenomenal talent and we’d been trying to get together for a while. This was the perfect opportunity for all of us to come together… their contribution definitely brings a new and exciting element to the project.

”Other jams on the album are “My, My, My God Is Good,” where Hammond brings a funky track, wrapped around a little hip-hop flava. “It is a straightforward praise of God’s goodness,” said Hammond.

And “That Ain’t Nothing” which completes the album, as it began … on a high, upbeat and joyous note.Complementing the upbeat praise selections is a number of worship ballads that address the boundlessness and wonder of who God is.

“You Are My Life,” and “He Is Not Just A Man,” both proclaim the wonder of His vastness and that He is truly everything.Already a Platinum selling artist, Hammond has toured around the world and blessed thousands, his reach continues to grow as he progressively moves into a number of different arenas.

Not only is he CEO of his own record label, F. Hammond Music, he has broadened his community outreach. Having been blessed with a number of motorcycles, Hammond and his crew literally use them as vehicles of street ministry.

Hitting the roads in an effort to reach out to different people, they have formed their own evangelizing ‘mini-motorcycle club.’ “People tend to believe that recreational outlets like these are only for the world,” said Hammond.

“This gives us an opportunity to hit the streets and show the world that serving God can still be fun … and allows us to minister to those people who wouldn’t normally go to church.”

Birding the Rio Fernando Wetlands!

While we are all being very responsible social distancers these days (you are being responsible, right?) you may find that you are needing some of that all important healing power of nature. Bird watching is a fun and healthy way to naturally social-distance. And the Rio Fernando Wetlands are probably the best place for bird watching in Taos County. So, what do you need to know about birding at the Rio Fernando Wetlands?

Spinus tristis – American Goldfinch

The Rio Fernando Wetlands are a combined area totaling about 30-acres on the southwest side of Taos, not far from the center of town. Town of Taos-owned Fred Baca Park and Taos Land Trust-owned Rio Fernando Park, make up the popular Ebird hotspot.

Check out the Ebird list for Rio Fernando Wetlands

On May 19, 2020 the Taos Land Trust (TLT) and Santa Fe Conservation Trust put ink to paper to permanently protect Rio Fernando park via a conservation easement. The easement will preserve scenic this open space and valuable irrigated agricultural land and wildlife habitat while offering recreational and educational benefits of the residents of Taos County in perpetuity.

Taos County as a whole has on record 276 bird species. The Río Fernando wetlands hot spot has 186 species—two-thirds of the species that have been recorded in the whole county.


Passerina caerulea – Blue Grosbeak


In 2015 the Taos Land Trust, a conservation organization, purchased the former Romo Farm—20 acres in the heart of Taos. Abandoned for 30-some years, the farm was a mess of weeds, barbed wire, and trash. The river had worn into channels that failed to slow the healthy flow of water. Invasive plants thrived. Over the past four years, the land trust, its partners, and teams of volunteers have carefully restored the land, returning the river to its natural course and re-growing the wetlands.

The area is not all wetlands. On the Rio Fernando Park section there are sections of upland fields and forests that are also rich with bird life. On the Fred Baca side, a large public park surrounds the wetlands section on three sides. Large cottonwood trees along the perimeter of the park often hosts hawks and owls. The wetlands on the Fred Baca side are best seen via a boardwalk and two viewing platforms.

Rio Fernando Park hosts both a half-mile loop trail around the entire park and a quarter mile wetlands trail and traces the edge of the wetlands.

Agelaius phoeniceus – Red-winged Black Bird

The Rio Fernando Wetlands are also rich in other wildlife. At least one beaver family has made its home in Fred Baca Park while another family calls a section of the creek in Rio Fernando Park, home-base. Coyote, bats and a wide-array of other creatures call the are home.

If you go birding the Rio Fernando Wetlands:

  • The Rio Fernando Wetlands are free to access.
  • Parking is best at Rio Fernando Park. The parking lot is open from 8am to 8pm during the summer and 8am to 5pm in the winter. Rio Fernando park is accessed by a small bridge over the Rio Fernando and then via a gate near the boardwalk.
  • Please remember that your dog must be on leash at all times in both Rio Fernando and Fred Baca parks. Please also keep your pet out of the wetlands as this disturbs the wildlife and negatively impacts water quality (E.coli associated with dogs has been found in the Rio Fernando). Please also pick up after your dog. Trash cans and doggy bags are provided.
  • Restrooms are located in Fred Baca Park.
  • Water is not available, bring your own.
  • Mosquitos are common in the summer
  • The boardwalk is often icy and dangerous in the winter.

I have found numerous hobby records about favorite pastimes, but this ditty from Trinidad, on the joys of bowling, is a first.

Listen to a sample of "Let's Go Bowling"

Once again, this one is a mystery.  One can assume that the label Val-Bac is the amalgamated name for the song's composer, Ted Vallejo and the singer, Fred Baca.  Based on the label number (SK4M-2180), I thought it might be a Rite pressing from the mid to late 1960s. However there is also an RCA Pressing "H" of note.

Address for the label is 627 Arizona Avenue, which a quick Google map search shows as an apartment complex, hugging the interstate.

According to Fred Baca's daughter, who sent me a note after I previously (and incorrectly) posted her father had passed away (apparently there were twoFred Bacas in Trinidad):

"Hi. I just wanted you to know that Fred C. Baca, of Trinidad, CO, who sings on this recording did not pass away. He still lives in the Trinidad area and occasionally still plays his fiddle and his Rickenbacker guitar. Fred and The Serenaders regularly perform on weekends at the El Rancho Club in Trinidad for close to two decades. They were a very popular band - one that continued to perform for weddings, reunions, and other special weekend events well into the late 90s. How do I know all of this? Because Fred is my father. I am so grateful for the recording you provided - only a couple of the original physical copies survived within our family - they were seemingly lost. Thank you for this post!!!"

Ted Vallejo passed away in 1988.

Musical artist

Fred Ho (Chinese: 侯维翰; pinyin: Hóu Wéihàn; born Fred Wei-han Houn; August 10, 1957 – April 12, 2014) was an American jazzbaritone saxophonist, composer, bandleader, playwright, writer and Marxist social activist. In 1988, he changed his surname to "Ho".[1]


He was born in Palo Alto, California,[2] and moved at the age of six with his family to Massachusetts.[3]

While he is sometimes associated with the Asian-American jazz or avant-garde jazz movements, Ho himself was opposed to the use of term "jazz" to describe traditional African-American music because the word "jazz" was used pejoratively by white Americans to denigrate the music of African Americans.[1]

Ho arduously sought to define what constitutes Asian-American jazz: "What makes Chinese American music Chinese American? What would comprise an Asian American musical content and form that could transform American music in general rather than simply be subsumed in one or another American musical genre such as 'jazz'?" He polemicized against "the white assimilationist notion of the petty bourgeois Asian American artist that anything by an Asian American artist makes it Asian American," pointing out that, for instance, "Yo-Yo Ma is a cellist who happens to be Chinese/Asian American, not a Chinese/Asian American musician."[4]

In his role as an activist, many of his works fuse the melodies of indigenous and traditional Asian and African forms of music. He envisions his music to be a real synthesis: "In opposing cultural imperialism, a genuine multicultural synthesis embodies revolutionary internationalism in music: rather than co-opting different cultures, musicians and composers achieve revolutionary transformation predicated upon anti-imperialism in terms of both musical respect and integrity as well as a practical political economic commitment to equality between peoples."[4]

Ho also co-edited four books: Sounding Off! Music as Subversion/Resistance/Revolution (1996), Legacy to Liberation: Politics and Culture of Revolutionary Asian Pacific America (2001), Afro Asia: Revolutionary Political and Cultural Connections between African Americans and Asian Americans (2008), and Maroon the Implacable: The Collected Writings of Russell Maroon Shoatz (2013). Ho's contributions to the Asian-American empowerment movement are varied and many. He is credited with co-founding several Asian-American civic groups such as the East Coast Asian Students Union (while a student at Harvard), the Asian American Arts Alliance in New York City, the Asian American Resource Center in Boston and the Asian Improv record label.

Of Chinese descent, Ho specialized in the combining sometimes asynchronous tunes and melodies of various musical traditions, creating what many have described as both brilliant and chaotic sounds. He was the first to combine Chinese opera with traditional African-American music. He led the Afro Asian Music Ensemble (founded in 1982) and the Monkey Orchestra (founded in 1980). He lived in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York.

Ho held a B.A. degree in sociology from Harvard University (1979). He recorded for the Koch Jazz and Soul Note labels. Some of his final works include Deadly She-Wolf Assassin at Armageddon, which premiered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in June 2006, and Voice of the Dragon I, II, and III. As Ho was a prolific composer, writer, playwright, his list of works grew continually. Some of his first CDs include Monkey I, Monkey II, The Underground Railroad to My Heart (Soul Note), We Refuse To Be Used And Abused, and Tomorrow is Now![4]

In his 2000 book, Legacy to Liberation,[5] Ho, recapitulating an aesthetic vision first presented in 1985, wrote:

Revolutionary art must ... inspire a spirit of defiance, or class and national pride to resist domination and backward ideology. Revolutionary art must energize and humanize; not pacify, confuse and desensitize...

I am adamantly against one-dimensional, so called "correct" proscriptive forms that petty bourgeois critics try to label as "political art." I'm also not in favor of the errors of socialist-realist art with its glorified "socialist heroes", but favor imaginative critical realism, a sensuous rendering of the colorful material world. Art can fill us with love, with hope and with revolutionary vision.

Ultimately society must be transformed through the organization of people for socialist revolution. Artists can contribute a critique of capitalist society. This is critical realism: to criticize appearances and obscured social relations ... Artists play key roles in affecting consciousness and can help to transform the working class from a class-in-itself to a class-for-itself.[6]

On August 4, 2006, Ho was diagnosed with colon cancer. After chemotherapy, his health improved, but a second tumor was found on September 24, 2007.[7] He wrote two books about cancer: Diary of a Radical Cancer Warrior: Fighting Cancer and Capitalism at the Cellular Level (2011), and Raw Extreme Manifesto: Change Your Body, Change Your Mind and Change the World While Spending Almost Nothing! (2012).[2] He received numerous grants, including from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller Foundation, and among the honours accorded him were a 1996 American Book Award,[2] a Guggenheim Fellowship, in 2009 the Harvard Arts Medal,[8] and in March 2014 (almost 1 month before his death) the Harlem Arts Festival Lynette Velasco Community Impact Award.[9] At the 17th Annual Black Musicians Conference, Ho received the Duke Ellington Distinguished Artist Lifetime Achievement Award, which he was the youngest person to achieve.[4] Ho died on April 12, 2014, aged 56, at his home in Brooklyn, New York.[10]
