Carly Simon, John Forte & Peter Calo on the Jimmy Fallon Show  

Jimmy Fallon Show - 11/11/2009:
Carly Simon Performs 'You Belong To Me'

featuring John Forte, Peter Calo & The Roots

 


PETER CALO is known for backing the likes of Carly Simon and Mary Gatchell
(which is where I saw him work), but he proves with "Wired to the Moon"

(petercalo.com) he is more than capable of holding his own. All the pop
singer-songwriter material here were either written by him, or collaboratively
with his wife Marianne. Calo is in total pop singer-songwriter mode here.

I was totally impressed by his vocals, which are soft and genteel without
being too soft or too genteel. I would
happily go see him perform solo, as
well as in backing-up mode. He's a talented songwriter, guitarist, and singer.
His songs are pull of shifting
melody lines and pacing. Some of my fave cuts
include the title cut, the other celestiial song "Full Moon Tango", especially
"Situation Totally". I was also in awe of his instrumental, "Takin' a Sip
(On a Horse-drawn
Carriage), which is total guitar in near bluegrass folk
form. Another song of note is the soul-inspired "Guns Are Not Enough".
