Memories of a Fool
It was once said, 'Reality is what you can get away with.' (Robert Wilson)... And so it is. Armed with only a little mandolin, someone forgot to tell Roger Falter that the mandolin wasn't supposed to be a 'full-on' permanent fixture in rock, funk, blues, or whatever-else-kind-of-music that can be found... but he's been getting away with this reality for years in various such musical projects on stages across Colorado. Now, Roger Falter brings his soulful, 'mandolin-renegade' style of songwriting to the forefront with his new CD release, 'Memories Of A Fool'. Combining the driving energy of a full acoustic band with vocalized themes tinged with a dose of cosmic humor, a tasty rhythmic concoction bakes until 'well done'. The thirteen original tunes maintain a beat-driven continuity, blending flavors of rock, reggae, groove, and blues into a unified sonic collage. 'From-the-gut' vocals mixed with tight harmonies propel this audio buffet of mandolin, acoustic guitar, saxophone, bass, and drums beyond the 'normal' parameters of such instrumentation. The result... 'An infectious, soulful blend of rockin' grooves, 'driven home' on an acoustic highway...' Have a listen... Stick these tunes in your head...
