Album Notes
Quick, raw and real. It started in November 2016 when the first title popped into my head. I had been sending music tracks to Stephen Kalinich hoping that he might write some lyrics... Eventually he did. All of a sudden I became busier and while I was writing arrangements for another project, I recorded these four songs at home. Paul Zollo had this to say about the tracks:

1. Holiday On The Roof - Classic Beatlesque celebratory-rock rave-up, ideal for perfect party anthem for the Summer of '17

2. Here Comes Something - Hypnotically funky Motown-meets-Steely Dan ode to love and its carnal pleasures

3. I Think I'm Falling In Love Again - An exultant and catchy folk-rock celebration of romantic hope

4. Bitter Pill To Swallow - Raw trip-folk Neil Young/Kurt Cobain song of infinite yearning

Four (GREAT) Songs
You listen to Four Songs, and then you listen again. And again. They're relatively brief but deceptively sophisticated. It's a satisfying experience. And the good news is: Neil Rosengarden is collaborating with Steven Kalinich. The result is an infectious blend of talents, fresh lyric ideas wedded to funky rhythmic grooves. In other words; really good songs that stay with you. It's mostly a happy album, focusing on moments of celebration of life and of love. Then comes the particularly poignant "Bitter Pill to Swallow," naked and vulnerable, as the trumpet moans a tune at odds with the key of the song. Disjunction, despair and hope all jumbled together. Just like life itself.
