Joseph Patrick Moore aka JPM is a bass virtuoso originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, now residing in Atlanta, Georgia. The winner of multiple national awards and scholarships for music excellence, JPM’s musical track record reads like a who’s who of the jazz world, and has made him one of the most sought-after studio bassists on the East Coast.
JPM’s most recent CD, Drum & Bass Society Vol 1. is an eclectic selection of arrangements in the genre of fusion jazz. JPM has assembled some of the finest studio heavies to create what I would call ‘A Musician’s Album’. Drum & Bass Society Vol 1. might be beyond the intellectual grasp of the average Joe, but is ideal for musicians wanting to hear cutting edge fusion arrangements and precision instrumentation with an emphasis on JPM’s incredible bass chops. Influences from Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Weather Report are felt as well as elements of hip-hop and sampling. There is even a concept feel that gives a new spin on this particular flavor of acid-jazz fusion.
