“Fats Waller is a special kind of provocateur. It stems mainly from the fact that he was a singer as well as a pianist. Sometimes he was like an MC. It has always amazed me that a pianist whose playing was so deep could sing and keep a running commentary of what was going on around him all at the same time.”

"Same Mother" has been touted as Jason Moran's Blues album, and so it is. But the key factor here is that it is Jason Moran's Blues album. Meaning, for those unfamiliar with Moran's all-encompassing take on tradition, that it is as far reaching as it is cohesive. From mournful solo excursions, to full on Electric Blues workouts, Moran gives us his take on the Blues, and they are a varied lot to be sure.

Augmenting his regular trio is criminally under-recorded guitarist Marvin Sewell. Heard previously with Cassandra Wilson, Jack Dejohnette, Gary Thomas and Tom Schmidt, Sewell is a multifarious talent. Capable of Frisellian styled Americana, but not limited by it, he adds interesting layers of sound to the trio.

From the raucous free-form electric Chicago styled Blues riffing of "Jump Up" to the epic ascending solemnity of Prokofiev's "Field of the Dead (Alexander Nevsky)", Moran and company find the Blues just about everywhere. The abstract "G Suit Saltation," as deconstructed a Blues as one can find in the post-bop idiom, invokes Jack Dejohnette's late 1970's electro-acoustic groups, while their cover of Albert King's "I'll Play The Blues For You" builds from traditionally reverential to impassioned. Their initially deconstructed take on Mal Waldron's "Fire Waltz" also builds to a rousing finish. Moran takes a few solo turns here, and there is a sparse pastoral quality to a number of the albums tracks, offset by more energetic pieces to create a well rounded exploration of the tradition known as the Blues. The album is book-ended by Moran's now de rigeur variations on his own "Gangsterism on ..." series, with both versions a raucous and stomping call and response take on this now familiar theme.

Despite the seemingly programmatic device of recording a "Blues" album, Moran and company have recorded what may be one of the most interestingly conceptual instrumental blues records in recent memory.

I have never reviewed an album on Amazon before but I felt the one star review, above, was very close-minded and unfair. Yes the new music is blues based on many tracks but it is not a straight blues album, just a new take, and a fun and adventurous jazz undertaking like his other discs. The addition of Marvin Sewell on guitar (slide and otherwise) is a great addition that adds another facet to this first rate band. Having seen the band live last night I can attest to the fact that this is a band with a great future! The show was mainly the music from SAME MOTHER and it was one of the best JAZZ concerts I have seen. BUY the DISC!!!! SEE the BANDWAGON LIVE!!!!!!!!!! You won't be disappointed.

This is the first of Jason Moran I have heard. It is the best modern jazz I have heard. If it is the blues, etc.. the whole point is it comes from the same mother. Good stuff
