BLUES: Jazzy Blues, ROCK: Jam-band
F Stop opens this album with an energetic, driving, fusion original which gives everyone in the band time to shine with and without accompaniment.
Kozic is a tune that is dedicated to the world renowned guitarist Tom Kozic, a friend and mentor to Roman.
Mercy Mercy Mercy is the Joe Zawinul/Cannonball Adderley standard. This was just a warm up tune that was done with the âRecordâ button on. It came on with a spontaneous groove that made the guys decide to keep it on the album.
Frame of Mind is another Roman original. He wrote it as a young adolescent before he had any formal training and refined it over the years.
Cajun Cookinâ was an idea Allan brought back with him from a recent trip to New Orleans. Just a little somân with Nâawlins flavor.
Minor Trouble was a warm up that was not intended to be used. However, Allan had the flute thing going on, and Carl was grooving on the Hammond.
A7 to Earth shows what can be done with one chord and sometimes no chords or rhythm pattern! Matt pulls out all the stops on this one with everything from funk, to effects, to free jazz.
Holy Smokes brings us right back to this planet with a warm comforting gospel feel that needs no explanation.
The Kind Of Blue Players
Matt Roman (a.k.a. Roman)
Romanâs guitar styles cover traditional hard bop, soft Wes Montgomery sounds, and a modern-fusion Mike Stern influence. His jazz sound developed from lessons with Pat Martino, and Tal Farlow/Joe Pass protégé Tom Kozic. But on tap when needed are some high energy rock classics from his 10 year international touring experience with a rock band and some soulful R&B standards from his Philadelphia upbringing.
Roman has performed with John Popper (Blues Traveler), Rick âMad Dogâ Moyer (Mad Dog & Blues Night Out), Charles Fanbrough (Jazz Messengers), Steve Kimmock (jam band circuit), and has toured the US, England and Europe. He regularly performs in Philadelphia and New York City. An industrial band used his material on an indie film soundtrack and heâs done background film work.
Allan Meyersonâs sax and flute mastery is influenced by his mentors Lee Konitz, Dave Leibman, and polished by 40 years of NYC all occasion bands. Soft or hard, classy and creative, he covers any tune in the book. The flute creates an extremely soothing, soft ambiance. The sax can swing and rock. Allan achieves a unique "multi-horn section" sound by employing a doubling electronic effect, giving the entire band the dynamic feel of even more members.
Allan has recorded with world renown trumpet player Jon Faddis, Verve recording artist "Marky" Markowitz, Grammy winner Pepper Adams, and Blood Sweat & Tears member Jim Fielder.
âChicagoâ Carl Synder Keyboards
Carl played on two albums that won the Handy Award, two more that were nominated for Grammies, and appeared in a film, "Blues Highway," that was nominated for an Academy Award. Carl was one of the pianistâs at Chicago's famed Second City Theater. He has performed in over 40 states and 11 foreign countries.
Since moving to Pennsylvania in 1996 he has continued to play Blues, Jazz and cocktail music in a variety of settings while operating his own record label, Lost World Music, and hosting radio shows on college and public stations.
Drums and Bass
Currently KOB consists of Steve Rosati (Collection Of Three, Steve Kimock) and Ray Grimmer (Bobby Radcliff) on bass details and Jim Roman on drums (Jay & The Techniques)
