Smoke Notes

As front man for the iconic cult rock band Ween, Aaron Freeman has gained equal notoriety and critical acclaim over the past two decades as a musical shape shifter, under the pseudonym Gene Ween. Now, for the first time, Freeman has shed the moniker, recording a solo album and giving fans a glimpse at the man behind the mask.

Marvelous Clouds is his most personal and authentic effort to date, showcasing his oft-overlooked abilities as a vocalist. As his fans can attest, however, there’s always more than meets the ear with him. Ironically, he manages to articulate himself more honestly than ever, on a record of songs by someone else.

The record is Freeman’s inter­pretation of 13 songs by Rod McKuen. To many young pups today, that name means nothing. But throughout the `50s and `60s, he was one of the biggest celebrities in the world.

Rod McKuen’s books of poetry sold millions of copies. He won a Grammy and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and two Academy Awards. He has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Madonna to Johnny Cash. Since the `70s, however, McKuen has retreated into seclusion, leaving a generation widely unaware of his work.
