O’s Notes: This is a unique sound coming from pianist/trombonist Steve Moore. He wrote all of the compositions and employs nine other talented musicians to perform his vision. The music is provocative yet engaging, especially “Dark Circles” and “Tough Luck”. Most of the tones are dark and the tempo relaxed creating a reflective mood. The exception is “Blind Ross”, an upbeat pop fusion tune. Overall, it is a creative session with great spatial separation and sound effects that reminded us of a movie score.
