O’s Notes: Pianist Moran forms a quartet with Sam Rivers (s), Tarus Mateen (b) and Nasheet Waits (d) for this adventurous session. While maintaining harmonic structures, they arrange the notes with the utmost in creativity. Most of the music is written by Jason but he pens in room for his fellow musicians. Not too far gone yet creative, most notably on “Kinda Dukish” & “Draw the Light Out”, and even mellow on “Gangsterism on a River”, bubbly piano on “Out Front”, and grooving on “Earth Song” with nice variation of pace.
