Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Stanton Moore Trio

Emphasis (on Parenthesis)

2008-04-22

This is another fine album from the Stanton Moore Trio, featuring Will Bernard on guitar, Robert Walter on keys, and of course, Mr. Moore on drums. This trio knows their stuff, presenting fresh, creative, modern jazz. This disc starts out with the blues-y "Late Night at the Maple Leaf". Then, it gets more driven with the almost Zappa-ish "Proper Gander". Check out the toy piano solo on the third track, "Wissions (of Vu)". The seventh track, "(I Have) Super Strength" has a real nice groove to it. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth in April 2008.
