In addition to being an endorser of their cables and products, Joseph is currently featured on the Analysis-Plus Cables website. Help support this wonderful company and find a dealer near you to try these cables for yourself!
“It amazes me that players will spend a fortune on instruments, speakers, pre/power amps and yet with all that high-end gear, they will use a cheap instrument/mic cable to connect the source. I’ve experimented with many of the “name brand cables” and nothing holds a candle to the Analysis Plus Cables. If you think cables don’t matter, plug in and listen to the AP cables. Record and analyze the audio wave form and you will see more transients, better definition, and tone. Analysis Plus is the bomb!.” - JPM

Dynamic electrifying jazz bass Joseph Patrick Moore - NEVADA SUN: With all the albums I get in here for review, it's often difficult to find one that gets me "really excited"...that's certainly NOT the case with the dynamic & electrifying jazz bass release from Joseph... you can witness his high talent energy with this clip of the song "Movement Of Light" from the upcoming (April 26th, 2019) super album...
...since you're right there already, be SURE to SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel, where you'll find MUCH more music from him, too... I did.
In addition to the bass, Joseph played and programmed all the instruments on this album. Everything you hear is Joseph... & It's just GRAND... don't just "take my word" for it, either; listen to "Remind Me", where you'll hear some of the funkiest jazz bass work you'll ever listen to... I predict that this tune will be getting MAJOR airplay on stations 'round the globe, so keep your ears out for this super young player!
As you might expect from the title of the inspiring closer, "Spiritual", the pace is a bit slower, but every note is jam-packed with emotion that may (even) bring a tear to your eye... I can tell you right now, If Joseph's playing schedule in 2019 includes the Portland, Oregon or seattle areas, I will make it a point to be there.
I'm a bit more inclined towards bass music that features a bit o' "popping'" & 'funk", so it was easy to choose my personal favorite of the eleven great songs Joseph offers up for your listening pleasure... the opener & title track, "Nevada Sun", just MADE my DAY... I wouldn't be (at all) surprised to see this piece nominated for (and WINNING) an award... very well crafted and executed!
I give Joseph a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) score of a (perfect) 5.00... meaning that he also gets my "PICK" for "best bass driven album". Get more information about him at the Blue Canoe Records page for the release. - Rotcod Zzaj
Bassist Joseph Patrick Moore’s latest album Live in 05 is a fun and spirited jazz-fusion collection of songs recorded at This House Rocks in Atlanta, Georgia on April 2nd, 2005. Moore has been busy over the last few years, putting out a few albums of his own as well as appearing on various other artist’s recordings. Here, he and his crack band of Al Smith on keyboards, drummer Jon Chalden, EWI player Al Mcspadden, and percussionist Emrah Kotan really give a five performance on eleven tracks of smokin’ and funky fusion, melodic cool jazz, and progressive tinged improvisations.
Moore himself is a very smooth player with some serious chops, whether he is laying down deep grooves or lean melodic solos on electric, fretless, or double bass. Fans of Victor Bailey, Gary Willis, John Pattitucci, Stanley Clarke, and Marcus Miller, will instantly dig Moore’s energetic style. Although there are plenty of great bass solos on the album, the live setting affords his bandmates to also get in on the action, especially keyboard player Smith, who launches into a wild synth frenzy on the funky “Gypsy Moon Father Sun”. He also provides a nice melodic foundation in which Moore can dig into some serious popping bass lines on the light jazz piece “Fall”. Drummers will love the percussion/drum spotlight “Drum Dance”, which allows Chalden and Kotan some room to show off before the song segues into the fine “Datz It (version 2005)”, a song with plenty of funk bass melodies and 70’s styled electric piano.
Ultimately it comes down to compositions, and Moore is no slouch in that department. These are all memorable tunes with catchy melodies, which go along just fine with the solid chops of the band. So if you in the mood for some well played and melodic modern jazz fusion, you can’t go wrong with Live in 05.
