“Hero Life” is another track from Melvin Fromm Jr.’s ever-growing catalog. That Melvin’s output parallels its own times is not surprising. He probably meticulously studies all the trends and vogues in music and the recording industry around him so as to be prepared for any kind of film score assignment that might come along. Melvin’s music is elegant and refined, maximizing the impact of its most dramatic sections.
But more importantly, Melvin’s music at its best precisely parallels his own personal growth, and it is that progress I track here. As he moves ahead and matures musically, you can hear him seeking new layered harmonies in his writing, more complex melodic structures that venture beyond the conventional thirty-two-bar song format, and a more dramatically developed score architecture.
Melvin Fromm Jr. is a reactive musician who reaches people through his music. And through his music has a lot to say. Of course, he glories in the sounds he is able to produce, and he wants to share that music with people. He represents loyalty to the old with the spirit of the new.
Melvin’s music seems to unite all the tendencies he has shown so far, yet with a mellowing and a maturation as well as a personalization that transcend any commercial and utilitarian genres that his music may serve. “Hero Life” sounds as alive and evocative as ever. It’s a gloriously propulsive keyboard driven piece which moves along at a deceptive pace.
