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)

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!

Never Never Land

Never Never Land

 

Having seen bassist Joey Moore perform with local jazz saxophonist Carl Wolfe, as well as with a spare trio, I was curious about why he risked sounding pretentious by affecting Joseph Patrick Moore for his album, NNL. The music explains: Joey Moore is the competent young sideman, Joseph Patrick Moore is the mature jazz artist, composer, and leader-no pretense. Moore’s Jazz is contemporary, with flavorings from cool to eclectic funk to nature sounds. But let labels neither attract nor deter – just listen to the soundscapes that Moore creates. Eavesdrop on a conversation as trumpet, sax, clarinet, piano, and B3 organ trade licks on SEX IN SPACE. Let BRAVE UP ride you in an agile sports car, with responsive shifts, straight-and-turns, ups-and-downs. Experience a mist, mystical rainforest in the title track. Ponder life while strolling cosmopolitan parks and streets in some CORNER OF THE WORLD. Or heck, just mellow out on the music.

Moore produced, and composed or arranged, the entire album. In addition to the bass gamut, he performs on a slew of instruments. MOMENT TO MOMENT credits Moore on everything: 5string electric and distorted fretless bass, intro voice, drum design and fills, piano, triangles, bells, shakers, strings, harp, horns. Busy guy. Beyond conventional winds, keys and drums, Moore uses all sorts of auxiliary percussion, electronics, and effects, to add intriguint accents or to weave textures under and around melodies. He gets help from two dozen featured players, including Wolfe, Harmonica cat Pete Peterson, and Posey Hedges, who co-produced. This album includes two brief dedications to jazz icons which seem to say, thanks for your inspiration, hope you like how I’ve made it my own thing. the first PAUSE honors Miles Davis, whowould scowl appreciatively at Moore’s fusion of turntable scratching with cool muted trumpet and funky bass, ending with a racing tempo transition, the kind Miles could propel telepathically in his 60’s quintet. In PAUSE 2 for Jaco Pastorius, the solo Moore invokes the late bassist’s blurry, fretless slurs, harmonics, and chording. Another homage is Moore’s slick, all-bass rendition of Coltrane’s GIANT STEPS, employing upright, distorted fretless and 5 string electric.

NNL is an impressive achievement. Listen. Appreciate how the jazz mosaic transforms as dynamic sound images, or just funks around. You get the feeling tthat Moore has lots of experimental and improvisational inventions percolating. Under any moniker, let’s hear more Moore.
