ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Texas guitarist Mike Fageros is a relative unknown in the larger spectrum of the "music business". This release "Mars in October", is a melange of originals and classic jazz standards like Shorter's "Footprints" and Hubbard's "Little Sunflower", not to mention "These are Soulful Days" as well. If you are a jazz lover or a guitarist, you will definately find something appealing on this CD.

Wes Montgomery fans will love the rendition of "In a Mellow Mood" and as well, fans of the late Hammond B3 Organist Jimmy Smith will love the treatment of the tune re-arranged by Mike entitled simply, "Mr. Jimmy Smith". The track is a medium tempo swing based on alternate blues changes with a few organ riffs thrown in for good measure as "Jimmy" would have liked.

This CD will be his second release and more effort has been put into this creation than any previous project. His teaming up with the "Young Lion", Houston drummer Jovol Bell has given his career new direction. That and with the addition of sidemen DeLover Axel and Kato Mc Kay (Al McKay's son) utilizes the guitar trio to its utmost. With few overdubs, and many live cuts, the real music comes through, similar to many of the Blue Note Albums in the 60's. The result is self evident in the final product, jazz guitar playing at its best.

Mike Fageros very well understands his instrument and respects the intimacy of t
Being a new artist these days has to undoubtedly be a labor of love. Just imagine trying to get someone to listen and be objective to your voice is almost impossible, that’s unless you’re striving to be an American Idle (at least someone listens). Maybe its time for “us” as music fans/consumers to stop being held hostage by the madness of the American media blitz of advertising while we’re gazing in the over cast skyline looking for that glimmer of light called stardom. It's very important for us to establish an intimate relationship with the inspiring voices of creative artists, they’re musical platter is filled with colorful and visionary expressions of passion. In most cases they’re music is non-commercial or draped with the cloned idealisms that we’re faced with daily. Read more at the above mentioned link.
