About the Album
Fromage is Atlanta-based pianist/composer Randy Hoexter’s second recording as a leader and first for Blue Canoe Records. Randy chose to do a collection of cover songs, with the intent of re-inventing familiar material. However, instead of selecting deep and poetic material, Randy decided to take on the arguably greater challenge of “cheesy” pop songs. Randy puts it like this: "I did lots of research on surveys of the "worst songs" of all time, and certain titles kept popping up. These songs are part of the culture, especially for people my age. The goal here is not to make fun of these songs, but to take them seriously and do our best to make some modern art. In this recording we will do our best to give these tunes some "love.""
