Live in 05'
Live in 05′

 

Joseph Patrick Moore is an accomplished bassist and composer and “Live in 05” recorded at “This House Rocks” in Atlanta, GA is a sensational Jazz album. I love the bass and percussion and felt the album, as a whole, had such a distinctive voice. 

“SoulCloud” and “Mystery” have such a cool vibe going on. “Prayer of Solitude” darn this track was way too short; it was so awesome! “Datz It” (version 2005) ended the CD in style. “Live in 05” by Joseph Patrick Moore is a fine Jazz album that I really connected with.

Joseph Patrick Moore's Drum & Bass Society - Volume 1

Joseph Patrick Moore's Drum & Bass Society - Volume 1


JOSEPH PATRICK MOOREDRUM & BASS SOCIETY VOLUME 1: Drum & Bass Society is the fourth release from bassist, multi-instrumentalist,
composer and producer Joseph Patrick Moore (JPM). Joseph’s influences vary from jazz greats Miles Davis and Coltrain to modern rockers such as The Police. JPM has worked with many musicians and he has played on over forty recordings from other artists. Drum & Bass Society is a fifteen-track collection that includes seven originals, five innovative covers and three quick interludes. The CD is an eclectic mix ranging from jazz, rock, world and so much more. Many talented players contribute to this dynamic collection. ‘Ghost Town’ features haunting sounds and vocals with diverse instrumentation. Funky beats blend with the mandolin and pedal steel to create an evocative modern jazz song. ‘Groove Messenger’ is an up-tempo jazz number that features dynamic drumming including the congas and an udu drum. Joseph crafts smooth cool beats on an acoustic bass as a subtle mandolin melds with a trumpet, a tenor sax and a soprano saxophone. This song has a lot of flavor and first-rate musicianship. JPM’s interpretation of The Fixx’s ‘One Thing Leads to Another’ is acoustic based. The highlight of the song is the flute leads and other solos giving this rock hit a more improvisational direction. JPM has compiled an eclectic mix of exotic mostly instrumental songs that are masterful!

Joseph Patrick Moore's Drum & Bass Society - Volume 1

Joseph Patrick Moore's Drum & Bass Society - Volume 1

 

Joseph Patrick Moore has served as a member of Col. Bruce Hampton’s Fiji Mariners and Blueground Undergrass. The bassist and multi-insrumentalist, currently based in Atlanta, produces solo records and also appears on a numerous projects as a sideman. Moore has a knack for bringing disparate musicians together into a collective that somehow manages to click. In VOLUME 1, the guest coax Moore’s seven original compositions into uptempo pop, contemporary jazz, and world fusion. There is also exotica in RAINDANCE, funk with CHEESEFROG FUNK, and groove-rock hints in HEAVY THINGS.  Sure, there are tracks that would be home in a lounge somewhere, lurkin in obscurity, but most of the record works quite well. The engaging takes on several covers include The Fixx’s ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER, where George and Caroline Pond from Snake Oil Medicine Show add their own obtuse dimension. The Specials GHOST TOW gets a jazzy treatment and covers of Phish, Men at Work and Tony Williams also get refurbished. Moore’s bass lines are supple, funky and don’t overwhelm the rest of the crew playing slide guitars, violin, horns, woodwinds and mandolin. His bass expecially shines in a dedication to Herbie Hancock simply entitled HERBIE.

Track to burn: GHOST TOWN
Grade: B

Never Never Land

Never Never Land

I really like Joseph Patrick Moore’s new CD release. Joseph is a multi-faceted bassist who is equally skilled on fretted fretless and upright basses.  His compositions are mature and seasoned nicely with dashes of originality  and freshness. My only hope is that he gets signed to a label that can  give him widespread distribution.

Good job Mr. Moore!
