CD release and personal notes – written by JPM May 11, 2010

To Africa With Love

Hello friends,

Today (May 11th, 2010) my newest CD “To Africa With Love” is released on Blue Canoe Records. I’m so excited to share this recording with you and hope that you will check it out and enjoy!

As the title suggests, “To Africa With Love” is a collection of songs inspired by the magical enchantment of Africa, fused with my musical influences and American heritage.  These audio vibrations are a snapshot of my life from June 2008 through the completion of this recording on February 11th, 2010.  Through happiness and pain, this recording captures my daily journey of the many facets in the creative process.  The composition, arrangement, performance, engineering, mix and overall production of this audio diary reflects my present musical and spiritual state.

Music has no boundaries and can not be separated by oceans, governments and principalities.  Music has the power to uplift, connect, heal and create universal harmony for the human race.  As God’s vessel, each of us are on a spiritual journey to develop and embrace the gifts He has given to us. With these gifts we should be reminded to develop and share them for and with our fellow man. Each of our unique thumbprints should not be taken for granted but must be utilized for the greater good.  It is my sincere hope that this CD captures and embraces this spirit, as it is the nucleus of every note and creative thought I relay to you.

This CD would not have been possible without the following artist’s who added their unique thumbprint to this recording:
Tyrone Jackson (keys)
Brian Carl (guitar)
Wayne Viar (drums/percussion)
Charlie Wood (vocals)
Seth Condrey (vocals, acoustic guitar)
Chinua Hawk (vocals)
Abbes Bouzefrane (vocals)
Ken Love (mastering)

Sincerely,
Joseph Patrick Moore

Bass Up 2007… October 8, 2007

On September 29th, I gave a workshop/performance at BassUp m2007 held at the Atlanta Bass Gallery. It was a wonderful day of performances and clinics featuring the bass talents of: Jeff Schmidt, Bernhard Lackner, Christopher “C3′ Cardone, Gary Wilkens, Russ Rodgers, Darren Michaels, Myron Bennell Carroll and Trip Wamsley.

Darren & CindyMichaels organized this event (as they have for several years). Kudos to the both of them! They were so respectful to all the participating artists and they made extra efforts to see that BassUp ran smoothly. Darren is such a talented artist in his own right and is a thoughtful and engaging human being. Much love goes out to Darren & Cindy Michaels for organizing such a great day.

In addition, Jim Rubio (owner of the Atlanta Bass Gallery) was so very gracious to host this event. By the end of the day, Jim had virtually given everyone in attendance numerous promotional items such as strings, shirts, stands and even a $1000 dollar bass preamp. Regardless of where you live, if you need any bass gear, you should contact the Atlanta Bass Gallery. Jim Rubio is providing an amazing service to bass players everywhere!

All in all, I was honored to have been asked to participate in BassUp 2007. I always enjoy meeting lovers of the low end:)
