ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Lambert has been writing, playing guitars, recording and performing for over thirty years. He firmly adheres to the old school philosophy of those ground breaking masters who inspired him , that music should know no bounds. His restless spirit has driven him into a variety of projects that have enabled him to tour extensively throughout America and Canada over the years as well as be a guest on several albums by an array of artists.
Lambert is a likeable chap with a cherub face and a friendly smile that is framed in a graying beard, making him almost wizardly looking, in a warm and cuddly Jerry Garcia kind of way.
While that former Grateful Dead icon is a musical hero of Lambert, he is but one of many from all genres of music whose influence seeped into the nooks and crannies of Lambert's artistic fiber. Gram Parsons,The Allman Brothers, Lowell George, Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs,Clarence White,Tony Rice and Doc Watson likewise have inspired his own creative output over the years.
Playing music since the age of thirteen, Lambert honed his skills in a variety of Chicago school bands while growing up, and today shares those skills as private musical instructor himself.
Lambert successfully filters bits and pieces of the disparate artists who inspired him into a sonic brew of eclectic and amazing music. Music lovers with broadband tastes will find much to enjoy in Lambert's enthusiastic approach, fueled by his genuine love and deep respect for all walks of traditional Americana music.
His no bounds mantra comes into play every time Lambert steps onstage or into a recording studio. Rock, folk, bluegrass, country, and blues all play equal parts in his musical output. Lambert excels at each style and bounces back and forth between them with an uncanny ease and smoothness.

On Friday I received list member Eric Lambert's latest Cd, Doin' Alright. This is a guitar album, an acoustic guitarist's guitar album. Flatpicking guitar, but no run of the mill bluegrass effort. I don't know what "genre" this really fits into, it is just great music -- that's the genre. First off there's the guitar playing -- superb. I can't play this well in my dreams, he's really playing that good on this CD. I would just love to be the master of my instrument that Eric demonstrates on this Cd.Seemingly effortless playing, total mastery of tone, technical execution, and that special "touch", making the guitar express what can't be said in words. Sublime expression musically that resonates deeply in the inner workings of the human soul. And that's doubly important in this collection.There are only two songs on this Cd, two wonderful songs, and ten superb instrumental pieces. The composing is terrific, the playing terrific both guitar and mandolin, and best of all is the arranging and mix -- again close to perfection is the only words I can come up that are accurate. Every instrumental part woven together in a wonderful tapestry of contrast and support. The two songs are first rate.The
title track is really an outstanding song, and Cumberland Blues is a cute witty song that I also like very much. As great as these songs are, it is the instrumental pieces that really blow me away. Ten instrumental pieces that captivate and hold you, envelop every second. The perfect mix of tempo, style and dynamics. Without vocals to hang your hat on, to do that for 10 tracks, all of them gems. I am amazed and inspired. You gotta check out this CD. Congratulations Eric. This is a truly outstanding CD.

Dear Eric
I just got finished listening to your new CD. I just popped it into the CD changer in my car...waiting to hear what I thought was just a demo CD for me to use to help book gigs in this area. I was VERY surprised (after talking with Dan) to find out you have a new CD. I called Dan,Doug,Leslie and said.."Do you know how "blanking" good this Eric Lambert CD is???!!!! Anyway, just want you to know i'm wearing it out in my CD player because it is my new favorite CD. I think you will find plenty of people interested in buying a few at Larry Fest and at the gig in June.

Sometimes music flows from the CD to the heart and the effect is timeless. Eric Lambert’s guitar and mandolin music take the instruments into carefully crafted tapestries of sound. While the songs are mostly instrumentals, each one stands on its own with melodies that leave little dancing notes in your head. “Green” has a lovely Celtic lilt, and “Doin’ Alright” is a great vocal to sing along and pack with you on a gloomy day. “Leaves” is a gentle, flowing guitar piece with melodic passages that bring images of the great outdoors. His version of “Red Haired Boy” has great depth and melodic variations that jam session players would be happy to imitate. Eric has managed to make the recording immediate and intimate and the listener feels like the concert is presented right in the living room.

I have been listening to your CD pretty much constantly ever since you sent it my way. It is such a pleasant mix of acoustic "Dawg-like" treatments of melodies, and the vocal selections are uplifting......I come away whistling and humming the tunes for the rest of my day ahead!

Amazing, enchanting music. Doin' Alright is a masterpiece, Eric Lambert. Ten of twelve pieces are instrumental -- and I loved it! And that's coming from a wordsmith.
