Mr. Fantastical: Born To Boogie Born To Die

BEST OF 2015
7
HCTF

Jason Corman aka Mr. Fantastical may look like a party act, but he isn't. His new album Born To Boogie Born To Die has its fair share off stomping good time music, but spin one of the smart instrumentals and be prepared to pick up your jaw from the floor. The acoustic Haunted Potato Shed wouldn't have been out of place on Ry Cooder's Paris, Texas soundtrack and the fast bits during the heavy Jaapan Funk will be dissected by guitar geeks. AARPeggio is another showcase of his chops and then some.

Catering to the musos won't pay the bills. The short route to people's wallets is a catchy tune like Raccoon Stomp or Copa Copa. And Corman isn't above playing send-ups like I Ain't Southern But I Play Southern Rock On The Radio to placate to both camps. Insiders will get the jokes and references while the general public will appreciate it at face value.

Born To Boogie Born To Die is released on Sunset Alliance Records.
