Telling a Story, Not Just Blowing

There are hints of inheritance here - that rich, vocal quality of Metheny's and Abercrombie's work on acoustic steel string- but Moreno is no parrot. Give a listen to the propulsive "Road Song", its unresolved "just over the next hill" attitude, and the majestic "Still Here", its patient tactility. "Gondola", too stood out, Moreno's pensive, swirling hesitation. You can hear him thinking with the instrument, telling a story, not just blowing.

Wonderful CD

Mike Moreno is one of the next up and coming major players in contemporary jazz. This CD illustrates an advanced concept of composition and a fierce improvisational talent. His technique is unique and astounding but while remaining tasteful. All the players on this CD are great; creating a beautiful backdrop for Moreno's soloing.

This is where jazz is headed, get it!

Get it now!

You deserve this album, because you like fresh, intelligent, sensitive, fun, creative jazz. And Mike Moreno deserves more than the nominal fee he charges for his art work. If you dig him, spread the word...these days real talent needs word-of-mouth advertising more than ever. There are endless flavors and colors and textures on this album. Dive in...you'll be glad. And so will Mike.
