Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This 20-something, Houston-born pianist emerged on the jazz scene with his brilliant work on alto-soprano saxophonist Greg Osby's recordings Zero and Banned in New York. With this debut, Moran is joined by Osby, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, bassist Lonnie Plaxico, and drummer Eric Harland. What makes Moran stand out from his peers is the influence of the great pianist Andrew Hill, whose complex and elliptical pianisms effortlessly straddle the boundaries of mainstream and avant-garde styles. Moran adopts and updates Hill's musical conception well, as evidenced by the snaky melodic lines of "Gangsterism on Canvas," "Snake Stance," and "Kinetics." "Retrograde" constructs and deconstructs a 4/4 groove, and "Aquanaut" pulses with Moran's cascading harmonic waves that give it the déjà-vu vibe of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman." "JAMO Meets SAMO" is a quirky, aural take on the paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, while the highlight of the CD is "Le Tombeau de Couperin/States of Art," a heartfelt reading of Maurice Ravel's French impressionist classic that segues into Moran's own equally impressive, trio-formatted composition. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Review

Pianist Jason Moran made his recorded debut on saxophonist Greg Osby's 1997 Blue Note release, Further Ado. It was an auspicious moment all around: For Osby, one of mainstream-jazz's brightest and most influential young leaders, it announced a sideman who the saxophonist praised as "made to order" for his challenging ideals. For Blue Note Records, it hinted at how forcefully the label's legacy would extend into the future. And on his 1999 debut for the label, Soundtrack to Human Motion, Moran delivered on that promise with what he calls a "dream band": Osby, vibist Stefon Harris (who has emerged as a Blue Note leader as well), bassist Lonnie Plaxico, and drummer Eric Harland.
