"I've had the pleasure of working with Vince, first as a bass player, then as a producer since 2004. Over the last ten years, Vince has managed to come with surprise after surprise, regarding his ability on the Native Flute. Not only in regards to his technical facility, but the degree in which he is able to express the true feeling of the piece he's playing. Whether it's Debussy, Keith Jarrett, or Traditional Navajo Songs, the listener is privy to an honesty, musical and spiritual. This album represents, to me, an apex of my work with Vince and the Native Flute. It was an absolute joy to create, and I hope it will be for you!" - MIKE LEVY


I am an American Indian (Navajo) that was born and raised in Monterey,CA USA.
My father, Rex Redhouse was the son of a Medicine man who was revered in
Indian Country. After serving in the US Army during WWII in the Pacific Theater
(Philippine Islands) he would marry my mom, Maria and raise his family in the
San Francisco Bay Area. Someone wrote, "In the late 60's and early 70's, the
San Francisco area was buzzing with the energy of change. The air was electric
with the possibilities of revolution and transformation. Native American, African
Americans, hippies, students, and grass roots politicos were part of a loose coalition​
determined to make the world a better place. A generation had been galvanized
and a heady scent of freedom filled the air. The optimism and fervor that drove
the Civil Rights and Anti-War movement was also being felt culturally and especially
musically. Folk and protest music, psychedelic rock, funk, soul, blues, and jazz
became the soundtrack of demonstrations. The Monterey Pop Festival and
Woodstock provided templates for the emerging tribal consciousness. I was just
a child when Jimi Hendrix performed at the Monterey Pop Festival. I remember
listening to the sound of his music from the front yard of my parents home. Later,
I remember listening to Steve Miller playing new songs like, "Living in the USA"
from outside the gymnasium at Monterey Peninsula College. I was too young to get
inside! All of my siblings got bit with the music bug.

I started playing woodwinds at the age of 7. I was blessed with having great music
teachers and mentors who inspired me to not only play music, but their example
made me want to make music-to be a musican. In 2003, at 48 years old and having
come back to music for basically my second or third career, I had my first two
albums nominated for Grammy's. It was and is a reminder to me that the gift that
we are given to share is never taken back. " The gifts and callings of God are
without repentance."

Most of the recognition that I have gained is from what I have done of the
Traditional Native flute, although the tenor saxophone was always my first
voice and sound. I really love Classical music and Jazz. What a contradiction
of music it would seem. To me, they are both beautiful musical languages
that demand a great study and commitment to be fluent and expressive. I believe
beyond the technique and cliches is a place where music becomes the song that
transcends all and is the Universal language.

"I believe music is more than what we hear
but something that we feel at a very deep place.
I think of music as a spiritual event that we participate in-the musician as well
as the listener. Navajo people have always been regarded
as spiritual people and my family through generations was
known for its medicine men-my grandfather Hosteen
Redhouse was greatly respected in Indian Country.
I believe those gifts continue to be passed to us just
as physical characteristics are, except these are spiritual.
My music carries the Spirit of my dad and his fathers and I
am keenly aware of this especially when I play the Native
Flute and when I compose music. Music for me is one of the
greatest expressions of spirit and heart and healing and it is
the gift I am blessed to share".
