And it’s the songs that take center stage with Moving Through America. Filled with character portraits and quirky insights, the album unfolds like a mosaic of modern-day American life, delivered by someone who's been crisscrossing the country for nearly half a century.
With an author's nuance and a humorist's wit, Forbert offers glimpses into the everyday lives of his characters: a dog running from the sky's thunderclaps; a Houston man preparing to take his girlfriend out for fried oysters; a road-tripping motorist steadily making his way across the Midwest.
Forbert inhabits each character, turning their storylines into first-person narratives that blur the lines between subject and scribe.
