Swaziland South Africa Documentary (3 parts) July 29, 2010

Post: Joseph Patrick Moore
Re: Swaziland South Africa Documentary
Date: 7-29-2010
Issue: Full length video divided into 3 sections

From July 15th through July 24th I spent time in South Africa, in particular The Kingdom Of Swaziland. My mission was to perform a series of shows at night and work during the day with a group called Heart For Africa.

With that said, I believe it would be more effective for you to watch the video documentary, than for me to put into words (blog) about this incredible experience!





25 minutes – posted at
Note: Some people have experienced streaming issues due to the size of the movie. That’s why we have broken down the entire documentary into 3 parts above.


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)

Discover Yourself September 14, 2009

ty</code>eYears ago I scribbled several quotes that really effected my outlook on music, creativity and life.  Recently, I found this paper of quotes in a shoebox of memories.  While I do not know the author, I thought it was worth blogging/posting and sharing this:

"Be brave enough to live creatively.  The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.  You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and not quite knowing what you are doing.  What you will discover will be wonderful - yourself." - author unknown


Let’s Create One More Job… April 21, 2009

tye It has been a while since I’ve made a personal blog post, as I’ve been extremely busy with many exciting projects.  We hope to announce these in the coming  months so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I wanted to post an issue that is very important to me.  In this current state of economic/political discourse and with many changes in the air, I believe it is important to address a movement/opportunity/position that could benefit all of us.  This job is a “Secretary Of The Arts” Government cabinet position.  The idea of this position is to build awareness and support creative artists, through support of its creators – the artists themselves.  With this cabinet post, it will demonstrate the fundamental importance of art, human well being and create the space and resources in which it can flourish.  With your help, we can make this a reality.

Quincy Jones and Jaime Austria initiated the idea and it has been spreading among artists/blogs throughout the world wide web.  I would encourage each of you to:

Secretary Of The Arts




Thank you for your consideration.

Live 365/My Ipod/Impromptu Jams June 6, 2006

As some of you know, I’ve had a radio station on for sometime. The music featured on the station was mainly from my solo CD releases with a little thrown in from side projects such as the EMP Project. Originally I wanted to set up the station in this way, so I could share my music with you. In addition, we wanted to get feedback (thumbs up/thumbs down) of what your favorite tracks were. We had decided sometime ago that we we’re going to release “Decade 1996-2005” and we wanted to get a general sense of what were some of my stronger tunes. When you record and perform your own music, sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees. You get so close to something, particularly when you create art, it’s hard to have an objective point of view. Your input was very valuable for deciding which tracks to put on the 19 song “DecadeCD“. Thank you!

Now that “Decade 1996-2005” has been released, we’ve decided to overhaul the Live 365 channel with a new attitude. We are going to continue to play song’s from my CD releases, future projects, live shows and side projects. However, we’re now going to share “what’s on my ipod”. I have over 30 gigs of songs stuffed on my ipod ranging from jazz to rock to hip hop and beyond and we’re going to plug that into the Live 365 channel. While I love jazz/bass, I’m an eclectic person by nature and you’ll see this clearly when you tune in to the station.  In addition, we’ve set up a “live punch in” feature, which will allow me to pop in at any time and give an improptu concert.  In fact, I just performed a new solo bass tune for a few people tuning in:)

Join me and check out some of the music that inspires me to create.


Until next post….peace

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

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

A surprisingly mellow version of Men At Work’sDown Under‘ opens this latest project from Atlanta based session man Moore. It’s an colourful album that takes a tour around some of his influences, for instance the opening track is followed by a jazz arrangement of ‘Ghost Town’ by The Specials and the songs of Tony Williams, Phish and The Fixx are also to be found. His own compositions are a cocktail of funk, jazz and soul shaken and stirred by a multitude of musicians. ‘Jamband Express‘ has a solid blues/funk feel with an irresistible groove and his tribute to Herbie Hancock, ‘Herbie‘ is a showcase for some outstanding soloing, Adam Nitti pops up on this track as an added bonus. Moore was recently named as one of the 100 greatest jazz bassist by Digital Dream Door and this album is the lastest testament to that achievement. 2004 Interview September 13, 2004
