Geshe is a Tibetan word meaning ‘virtuous friend’. Geshe is also the title earned by one who has completed the roughly 20-year course of study at Sera-Jey Monastic University. Filmed at Sera Jey in South India, “Path to Geshe” immerses you in the color-rich world of a Tibetan monastery, a world of unexpected laughter and joyous effort set against the rigors of monastic study and intense dedication to the Buddha Dharma.
“Although the bulk “Path to Geshe” was shot over two trips to Sera in south India beginning in 2008 my personal journey to this wondrous place began with my first visit in 1993. Each visit since then has been like a home coming for a long lost brother. Living with the monks of Sera, who have become family to me, has been an amazing experience, I am honored to share the story of life at this amazing place with you.” – William Judge

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)

Original Post by JPM:
In August of 2008, guitarist Dan Baraszu and I went in the studio for two days to record a live jazz duet Christmas CD. Today it has been released on Blue Canoe Records. It was honor to be able to record in an intimate setting with one of my favorite guitarist’s who happens to be a dear friend.
At first I thought this would be an easy recording project, but the more I started working out the arrangement’s in pre-production, I knew it would be quite an undertaking. Recording in a duo setting (avoiding an over-produced CD) was a very eye opening experience. The stillness and nuance required in capturing a clean performance was ever more present. Every breath, string buzz, room noise, movement was amplified once we started adding compression and effects. In a sense, this was a very naked and bare recording with no other instruments to mask the inconsistencies of our performances (particularly drums). Capturing a great performance, minus all the ambient noises was probably the biggest hurdle we had to overcome.
Secondly, how many times have we heard the vast catalog of Christmas music from multiple artists over the years? Trying to re-arrange these “standard” tunes was in and of itself a challenge. The goal of course was to try and come up with something new or create a fresh unique approach to these classic songs. All in all, recording in this duo environment with Dan was a blast. I hope each of you will enjoy the CD as much as Dan and I had in performing/recording it.

Preview from book: (page 9)
When I was first approached about contributing to this book, I had reservations about being a part of this collaboration. While I admired and respected my fellow coauthor and while I was extremely honored to be considered for this book, I thought, “What am I going to write about?” “What do I have to offer in terms of information about surviving in the twenty-first century digital revolution?”
I started reflecting on my experiences and my growth both as a player and person and I realized that maybe I could offer a few opinions and advice to those trying to keep up with surviving in the twenty first century. I realized that from the time when I started working on my first independent CD ten years ago, that the music business has dramatically changed with the dawn of the digital age and the world wide web. In order to keep up with the ever evolving entertainment industry, I’ve had to reevaluate my mission and game plan many times in the last decade. I concluded that yes, maybe I could offer a few words of encouragement to those that want to share their music with a global audience but feel overwhelmed at where to begin.
In this twenty first century, artists/musicians/performers have to wear so many hats in order to survive, especially if you haven’t had a “hit” recording or don’t have a record deal. If you are an independent artist, It isn’t just about making music anymore, it’s also about learning how to share your sounds in this new global marketplace. The world wide web has made anything you dare to dream possible and even a reality. It is possible for an independent artist such as yourself to reach out and share your music with a global network of fans and industry at the click of your fingertips. From the planning stages of evaluating who you are and where you are going, to promoting your music, to hiring a team of professionals, to creating a synergy of your music and gifts. In my portion of this book, I will be offering advice based on my experiences with what works and what doesn’t work, things to consider and an overall balance between art and business.

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 jazz trio has just released their second CD titled, “Wherever We Go”:
Joseph Patrick Moore’s Drum and Bass Society
“Volume 1″ (Blue Canoe)
Compare to: Stanley Clarke, Fredalba
Review by — Dan Hopper
Joseph Patrick Moore has once again proven his versatility as a bass player, arranger and composer. Unfortunately, his music is all over the board stylistically, which may lower its appeal.
“Volume 1" is layered with diverse songs, all of which contain complex musical patterns. Moore and his backing musicians groove as hard as George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic at times, and Moore’s skills on bass are definitely comparable to Funkadelic’s Bootsy Collins.
The songs have a light-hearted enough tone to fit with any jazz listener’s taste, but the superb backbeats give most of the songs a Latin and funk feel.
There is even a hint of some Caribbean and Arabian influences found throughout. “Down Under”, the leadoff track, could not have received a better title. The music sounds like it could fit perfectly with a TV advertisement for a South Pacific Island‘s vacation getaway. The music features shakers, congas, Udu drums, a mandolin, a flute and even a pizza box scraped, tapped and swirled with jazz brushes. The choice of instruments is innovative, though slightly unconventional.
“Ghost Town” starts out with a few bone-chilling screams. The lyrics mention a ghost town, but the music brings images of deserts and sandstorms with a little enchantment placed upon them.
“Creatures of Conscience,” a Tony Williams composition, has the strongest groove and features an extremely syncopated jazz-funk drum pattern. Jeff Sipe‘s tom fills, high-hat work and borderline-genius drum solo in this song are admirable, considering his name is one not generally mentioned outside of jazz and funk musician circles. “Creatures Of Conscience” is a good song, but it doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of Moore’s album. He is a bassist and the track obviously features the drums. The bass is barely noticeable.
This is without question a “musician’s album,” meaning the people who would buy it would most likely be musicians who are deeply versed in complicated musical styles or those with a deep love for groove-oriented music or appreciation in general.
