New Single Release
Guitar phenom Dan Baraszu and bassist Joseph Patrick Moore team up to record the Metallica classic "Seek & Destroy" from their 1983 debut album titled, "Kill 'Em All". This jazz duo interprets this song in a fashion unimagined nearly 40 years ago by writers James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich.
Jazz is about moving music forward and Dan and Joseph's rendition of this classic heavy rock tune, performed in a jazz setting, demonstrates this unique dynamic duo by pushing the boundaries of what jazz is in 2022.
Joseph recently arranged/produced/recorded/mixed The Beatles classic “Ob‐La‐Di, Ob‐La‐Da” for Honda Japan. The commercial and new vehicle were launched yesterday in Japan. The track features: Buzz Amato (keys), Mundo Juillerat (guitar), Scott Meeder (drums) with Trammell Starks engineering, JPM (bass), Tom Noguchi (assistant producer), and Orono from Superorganism on vocals.
Joseph appears (as well as many) in the new book by author Jerry Grillo titled, The Music and Mythocracy of Col. Bruce Hampton: A Basically True Biography. JPM has several quotes and stories shared within the pages of the amazing work by Jerry Grillo from Joseph's four years touring with Col. Bruce Hampton & The Fiji Mariners.
You can purchase this book on Amazon.
Col. Bruce Hampton was a charismatic musical figure who launched and continued to influence the jam band genre over his fifty-plus years performing. Part bandleader, soul singer, storyteller, conjuror, poet, preacher, comedian, philosopher, and trickster, Col. Bruce actively sought out and dealt in the weird, wild underbelly of the American South. The Music and Mythocracy of Col. Bruce Hampton is neither a true biography in the Boswellian sense nor a work of cultural studies, although it combines elements of both. Even as biographer Jerry Grillo has investigated and pursued the facts, this life history of Col. Bruce reads like a novel―one full of amazing tales of a musical life lived on and off the road.
Grillo’s interviews with Hampton and his bandmates, family, friends, and fans paint a fascinating portrait of an artist who fostered some of the best music ever played in America. Grillo aims not so much to document and demystify the self-mythologizing performer as to explain why his fans and friends loved him so dearly. Hampton’s family history, his place in Atlanta and southeastern musical history, his significant friendships and musical relationships, and the controversies over personnel in his Hampton Grease Band over the years are all discussed. What emerges is a portrait of a P. T. Barnum of the musical world, but one who included his audience and invited them through the tent door to share his inside joke, with plenty of joy to go around.
Joseph appears on last single with the late Yonrico Scott titled, “Child of the Blues” (produced by Diane Durrett). You can listen at:
Child of the Blues' was inspired by Yonrico Scott's early life. It was his last song written before he passed away on September 19, 2019. He wrote it with his friend Diane Durrett. As a tribute to Yonrico, his friends recorded with his existing drum track for Child of the Blues. Thanks to all the musicians, friends and family!
