Recorded by RALPH MOORE on IMAGES
Landmark: LCD 1520 2 / Recorded December 15 & 17, 1988
||Medium up swing
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This uptempo burner features a very challenging melody for the front line as well as some killer unisons between the bass and piano which are sure to challenge even the most technically adept groups. The final product, however, is certainly worth the effort.
SOLOS: The solos contrast an extended modal section with a section of II-Vs that explore several different keys in rapid succession. These are great changes to show off a well-rounded soloist.
RALPH MOORE (b. 1956) London-born Ralph Moore is perhaps the country's most visible tenor sax player, thanks to his current gig with the Tonight Show band. After moving to the U.S., Ralph attended Berklee, where he played with James Williams and his current boss, Kevin Eubanks. He has played and recorded extensively with Horace Silver, Cedar Walton (in Eastern Rebellion) and the group Native Colors, which he co-leads. Ralph has also worked with Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Barron, Bobby Hutcherson, J.J. Johnson and others. He has recorded several albums as a leader with sidemen such as Mulgrew Miller, Terence Blanchard, Benny Green, Billy Higgins and Smitty Smith.
