I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Madison Records artist: The Moore-McColl Jazz Society - Up And Gone - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Up And Gone, by The Moore-McColl Jazz Society and it's an interesting blend of R&B, pop, rock and jazz. Opening with What's Still Happening, Beth Moore on keys and Chance McColl on guitar create an slightly funky track with a cool melody. With Tim Aucoin on bass, Joel Morris on drums, Randy Hunter on alto sax, Caleb Latimore on trumpet, Justin Powell on trumpet and Declan Ward on alto sax. Sunlit Flower (Against The Sky) is a supple ballad featuring Moore on lead vocal, accompanied by McColl on acoustic guitar. Nicely blended backing vocals give the track a really nice iridescence. R&B track, Back To Atlanta has a bit of a 60's 70's soundtrack feel with saturated keys by Moore and nicely phrased guitar soloing by McColl. Lattimore belts out a solid trumpet solo followed by a real nice alto solo and a nicely phrased guitar solo by McColl. Wrapping the release is No Apology, with McColl on lead vocal and a funky bass line by Aucoin giving the track its body. With punchy horn work by Powell, Lattimore, Ward and Hunter and a tight guitar solo by McColl, this track could be from the Steely Dan song book. Solid closer.
