ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I studied classical flute at an early age, but soon realized there were more opportunities for work playing keyboard, which I started to explore around this time.

I played in numerous groups, and now found myself singing in many of these bands as well.

In the late 60’s I was a member of the “Forum Quorum”, while signed on the Decca Label, we released one album, did two movie soundtracks and several TV appearances.

We also shared the stage with the legendary Jimi Hendrix and we were the "warm up" band for Gladys Knight and The Pips at The Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, Long Island, NY.

A few years later, I was also playing TV and radio jingles and started playing major venues in the club date field.

Several bands later, I found myself a full time member of one of NY City's top lounge band "Vertigo". Some of the gigs that stand out are, The Kennedy Center, China Club, Le Bar Bat, and top hotels in the city.

After the break up of the band, I decided to go solo. I am currently playing at upscale Long Island restaurants where I live.

My premier CD is a collection of original material written in recent years.

I describe my music as very pure in instrumentation utilizing strings and many keyboard textures. Many of the songs are classically oriented and contain different types of grooves, while some are simply soulful in nature.

Your music is breathtaking. I kept going back until I bought it!
My favorites are Tumbleweed, Spanish Lace, Until the Right One and Caught-Up!

Soul Today

Top 5 of 2006. Moving, soulful, polished, unique, passionate
This is an extremely soulful first solo CD by a legendary Long Island singer. This CD demonstrates a depth of soul and wisdom of an artist that all musicians should strive for. Although there are several top-flight tunes, for me the song Higher Power alone makes the CD a steal. It is an all-encompassing anthem of hope that should not be missed. Other standouts are Elizabeth, Caught Up, and Like No One Before. The opening and closing instrumentals are terrific soundtracks just waiting for a good enough movie.

So wonderfully tasteful this cd blew me away! Roger Calleo is a truly great singer and a wonderful composer. The musicianship is First Class. Roger truly ranks right up there with the best contemporary artists of today. I have played this cd over and over, and I am amazed at how diverse and seasoned Roger is in everything he does. Wake up people, this guy is incredible!!!!!!!

Thought provoking, passionate journey of emotions
The instrumentals conjure up fantastic images in your mind!! The songs are so powerful, yet so mellow-especially love Higher Power and Like No One Before.
