In the anatomy of roots music, the lipbone must be connected to the groove bone. That certainly seems to be true in regards to the sound of Lipbone Redding.

Lawrence "Lipbone" Redding, so nicknamed because of his uncanny ability to produce a remarkably realistic trombone sound with nothing more than his lips, plays a variety of laid-back grooves. His sound ranges from a smooth, '70s-style soul to a New Orleans-flavored jazz.

Redding's talent for mimicking the sound of a brass horn is singular, and if he used it excessively it would be easy to dismiss his music as a novelty act. But this element is blended seamlessly into the compositions. You'd never know it wasn’t a real horn. Redding focuses instead on presenting an easy flow of songs that alternate between Latin rhythms, jazz, soul and pop all laid on that solid foundation of groove. That sound is complemented by lighthearted lyrics, which often look back wistfully on a misspent youth that, in hindsight, doesn’t seem so misspent afterall.
