All the Way Down
I've been playing professionally for 25 years, mostly with my brother Billy in The Goodman Brothers. Sometimes a folk duo, sometimes a rock quintet, we played over a thousand shows on both coasts and in Europe. Our folk CD 'Crooked Smile' (Taxim records, Germany) received a four star review in the German Rolling Stone. This is my solo debut, a somewhat jazzier record cut with session player friends this year in Nashville. Pop for grownups. . Here's what THEGLOBALMUSE.COM had to say about 'All the Way Down': TGM Album Review The pop music from yesterday is now considered adult contemporary, and artists like Frank Goodman get to bask in the upper levels of music maturity. Frank has created a CD with songs that are about something more than hooks and catchy one liners. These songs are real and focused works of art that only time and experience can bring. Like the quality of an aged wine, this style of music has an appeal that is truly refreshing. Frank adds a unique quality with his vocal style and generates a pure artistic exhilaration that is unmatched by today's standards. The music on this album is beautifully mastered and produced with great flair. The acoustic guitar is radiantly fit into the soulful sounds of these pieces. Songs like 'Mostly Sunny' and 'Angel Eyes' are also remarkably crafted songs with an intelligent style all their own. Of course, this music may not be for everybody, and what music is, but it will definitely satisfy those who appreciate the finer side of pop music and more of a well rounded style of sound and rhythm. - Michael Allison - THEGLOBALMUSE.COM.
