Following the release of 2002's enhanced CD entitled, NATIVE TONGUE, composer/bassist/keyboardist Kam Falk went back to the woodshed to begin developing a creative concept for this highly anticipated follow-up CD as a solo artist. While crafting this new CD, he has reached significant new career milestones, including collaborating with a host of new and musically gifted artists, composing his first symphony, the Belliger Symphony, and earning a master's degree in music composition. Along with these milestones, Kam has continued to perform on a regular basis while teaching music and sound engineering. His experiences have all been weaved into the sonic image of RETRO-RESPECT, with a focus on keeping the sound contemporary while serving each song with a unique arranging approach, along with adept and judicious playing.
Kam has also carefully chosen the repertoire for RETRO-RESPECT, this time emphasizing a more accessible arranging and performing style in the music, as well as choosing select favorites by ten of the most noteworthy and influential artists of this generation and giving you his unique interpretation. He has solicited some very capable help along the way, including friends such as saxophonist Alex Dean, guitarist Dorian Vaz, keyboardist Gary Bivona, and many more. With this new outing, Kam gives listeners a welcome new sound that blends all of his influences, giving you a healthy dose of rock and pop while stirring in some jazz and R & B spice.
