The 31 contributing musicians included Steve Earle, Jon Dee Graham, Lucinda Williams, John Cale, Jennifer Warnes, Ian Hunter, The Jayhawks, Los Lonely Boys and Son Volt, as well as family members Pete Escovedo, Javier Escovedo and niece Sheila E. -In 2005, Escovedo's song "Castanets" appeared on the iPod playlist of George W. Bush, prompting a self-imposed ban on live performances of the song. *Alejandro performed "Castanets" on December 29, 2007 while opening for Patti Smith in New York City's Bowery Balloom. THEATRICAL WORK BY THE HAND OF THE FATHER is the music and selected stories from the theatre-work created by Alejandro Escovedo in collaboration with playwrights Theresa Chavez, Eric Gutierrez and Rose Portillo. The play and music explore the relationships between immigrant fathers and their children. The theatrical work grew out of songs he had written about his father, Pedro Escovedo FAMILY -His parents emigrated to Texas from Mexico -His father played in local mariachi bands in the 1930’s, as sang in major East Bay bands -Brothers Coke Escovedo and Pete Escovedo, both percussionists, have played with Santana, Azteca and Malo -Longtime Prince collaborator Sheila E (Pete's daughter and Alejandro's niece) QUOTES "Alejandro is an abstract expressionist historian of his and our past, of emotion and desire." - Jonathan Demme "Musically, Alejandro Escovedo is in his own genre." -David Fricke, Rolling Stone “Escovedo has blended the lyricism of Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne with the raw power of the Stooges and the Velvet Underground…the result is music with heart, brains, and a burning sense of adventure.” - Mark Kemp, Rolling Stone “A masterwork from one of the genuine lights in rock music.” -Billboard “Escovedo’s songs brim with beauty and suffering, love and fear, anger and determination — in short, with life.”— USA Today “Escovedo keeps getting better at an age when most artists are on cruise control.” - Chicago Tribune “Tom Waits. Bruce Springsteen. Bob Dylan. They’re master singer-songwriters who thousands have tried to emulate. This John Cale-produced album proves there’s another name ready for the list.” - Penthouse
