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
(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
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",
"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
form. Another song
of note is the soul-inspired "Guns
Are Not Enough".
