Re: Earl Klugh at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival

Just finished performing with Earl Klugh at The Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago. It was a total blast! Thanks to Earl Klugh for inviting me to perform with him and to Eric Clapton and The Crossroads Organization for having the vision of having a master jazz guitarist such as Earl to be apart of this year’s 2010 concert. Not enough words can express how appreciative and honored it was to be apart of such an event. I heard, witnessed and met so many incredible artists, that I’m still trying to absorb the experience. A few of these moments were captured with pictures and I’m attaching a few of them here. If you would like to see my complete gallery, simply click this link. Additionally, the concert will be available on DVD in the coming months.

It should be noted that the main focus of this event is to aid The Crossroads Centre Antigua. Crossroads Centre is a non-profit, International Centre of Excellence for the treatment of alcohol and other drug addictions. Residential treatment provides a unique opportunity for individuals suffering from alcohol and drug addiction to immerse themselves in an intensive therapeutic and supportive environment. Away from the daily distractions of everyday life, the physical environment is one of peace and tranquility which offers clients a safe place to begin the process of recovery. In addition to alcohol and drug rehabilitation program, services include: intervention referrals, aftercare planning transitional living residences, and an integrated family program.

Peace and blessings,

With Earl Klugh and Bob James… May 26, 2010

I wanted to write a quick blog post about the amazing shows that I experienced with Earl Klugh in Los Angeles (Catalina Jazz Club) and with Bob James and Earl Klugh in Seattle (Jazz Alley). Getting an opportunity to perform and share the stage with two legends of jazz was an absolute career highlight. In addition to the musical inspiration, it was even more rewarding to find these two gentlemen to be such great people. It was a true honor and a very humbling experience.

In addition to sharing the stage with Earl and Bob, sharing the stage with David Lee Spradley (keys), Yonrico Scott (drums), Logan Patton (sound engineer LA) and David Kuhn (sound engineer Seattle) was a treat and honor as well.

Lastly, the unsung hero of the show(s) was Earl Klugh’s manager. She is one of the best I’ve ever seen and none of this would have been possible without her steady hand and sage expertise. All in all (musically and otherwise), I am very thankful for the opportunity to have made music with this cast of amazing artists and to be surrounded by wonderful genuine people.

Now on with the Motley…

Peace,
Joseph

Soul Cloud

Soul Cloud

Versatile Atlanta-based bassist Moore’s new album is packed with fun grooves from the word go. His technique and ideas are steeped in the electric bass developments of the past thirty years, but with a fresh contemporary edge.

The band fries up a hot passel of funk on track #1. The horns are hot and deep into the boogie, Moore’s envelope-filtered bass adds a Bootsy Collins vibe, and Aquarium Rescue Unit guitarist Jimmy Herring tempers the sauce with a cupful of hot bluesiness. Tracks #2 and #5 give the expected nod to Jaco; track #3 begins with thumping worthy of Marcus Miller and evolves into pretty double-stops. These tracks especially flaunt Moore’s studio-quality chops.

Though most of their names are unfamiliar, Moore’s sidemen are complementary, empathetic and well chosen. Pianist Bill Anschell lays down a Ramsey Lewis-style groove on #7 and ‘Buzz’ Amato boots the organ around the floor before trumpeter Vance Thompson enters with soulful lyricism. Moore closes the disc with covers of classic songs by Led Zeppelin and Kansas. The former is driven smoothly along by Moore’s taut harmonics and fingerstyle melodicism, while the latter floats on an unexpectedly successful Latin jazz beat. Palmer Williams‘ vocals on the last tune are notably fluid and enjoyable. Joseph Patrick Moore is definitely a talent worth hearing, and this well-made disc will be of particular interest to electric bass aficionados.

 
Track listing: Datz It; Ashes To Ashes; Big Butt Bass; Soulcloud; Pause #3; Mumphis Cosanostra; Cosmic Dance; Going To California; Dust In The Wind.

Personnel: Moore, acoustic and electric basses, shaker; Jimmy Herring, guitar; Yonrico Scott, Phillip Smith, drums; Bill Anschell, Bob Marbach, piano; Frank “Buzz” Amato, keyboards; Vance Thompson, trumpet and flugelhorn; Stan Cherednik, alto and soprano saxes; Bryan Lopes, tenor sax; Palmer Williams Jr., vocals.
