Album Review

A versatile fusion guitarist who can also play fiery rock and straight-ahead jazz, Carl Filipiak dominates his CD I Got Your Mantra. Sometimes he plays with the power of an Al Di Meola or Buddy Guy, and at other times he sounds more lyrical. Most of I Got Your Mantra showcases Filipiak in a quartet with keyboardist Paul Soroka (who also has an excellent spot on tenor), electric bassist Steve Zerlin and either John Thomakos or Dennis Chambers on drums. Guest musicians are heard in spots and "Memphis Walk," which has a brief rap and three background vocalists, is a change of pace. But otherwise Filipiak stars throughout. While "A Day in the Life" is a sleepy opener, the music soon becomes intense with Filipiak seeming to create different tones on each selection. His explosive playing on the closing "Too Much TV" is humorous and throughout I Got Your Mantra, Filipiak shows that he is one of the leaders of 21st century fusion.

Carl Filipiak "I Got Your Mantra"

Carl Filipiak is a guitar player's guitar player, and a consummate musician. He is a national-level talent working in a small Baltimore market, producing a body of work that will leave him in the company of the greats. The music is fun, intelligent, and engaging. Don't miss it.

His tribute to Jimi

Carl does a wonderful job of expressing his love of Jimi here - but there is more - A Day in the Life is a Masterpiece! This CD contains something for everyone. The Jazz chops are there, the expert craftsmanship shines through. Probably the best recording of his I have every heard and I have heard then all. He is a wonderful musician and there are no raisins here! If you've listened to Carl before - you get the joke - if not - keep listening to Carl.

Carl Filipiak

Wonderful! Really Enjoyed. Carl's talented songwriting is on display with I Got Your Mantra & Memphis Walk, and his interpretation of "A Day in the Life" is inspiring. Tasteful chops and funk grooves makes this CD a pleasure to listen to over and over. Can't wait for more!
