"Encomium In Memoriam Vol. 1: Jan Berry of Jan & Dean": An overdue but well-done tribute CD
THE NEWS & OBSERVER "A young historian who lives in Raleigh has been researching a biography of Jan Berry of the early 60s pop surf vocal duo Jan & Dean for nearly a decade. Gaining Berry's confidence, Mark A. Moore secured a vast collection of the musician's personal and professional files, including handwritten scores of fully orchestrated songs...The result is an important archive that presents an overview of Berry's career, both his hits and his later, largely unknown works. As an album, it stands on its own as deceptively complex pop orchestration that is just plain fun."
