colinmce Posted May 13, 2010 Report Share Posted May 13, 2010 In 1999, the same year that Jason Moran released his debut Soundtrack To Human Motion, the prodigy pianist and composer also joined New Directions, a band made up of young stars from the Blue Note roster that went on tour in celebration of the label’s 60th anniversary. At the core of New Directions was the genesis of a rhythm section—with Moran, bassist Tarus Mateen, and drummer Nasheet Waits—that would go on to become one of the most enduringly creative piano trios in jazz. Ten years later, the trailblazing trio—which Moran has since dubbed The Bandwagon—headed into Avatar Studios in Manhattan to record Ten, the most assured and focused album of Moran's acclaimed career, a snapshot of a mature band with a decade of shared musical experience from which to draw. The album, Moran's first in four years, will be released June 22. Really looking forward to this one.A tracklisting: 01 Blue Blocks 02 RFK In The Land Of Apartheid 03 Feedback Pt.2 04 Crepuscule With Nellie 05 Study No. 6 06 Pas De Deux - Lines Ballet 07 Study No. 6 08 Gangsterism Over 10 years 09 Big Stuff 10 Play To Live 11 The Subtle One 12 To Bob Vatel Of Paris 13 Old Babies Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
