Totally hip jazz Turning Circles – WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND: Trumpeter Kerry Moffit and I share more than he might know… I too retired after over 40 years of service to our country; and we were both involved in music for much of that time… to get a closeup look at his significant skills as a teacher, watch this video of him first…
If you SUBSCRIBE to Kerry’s YouTube channel, you’ll only see a couple of videos, but (hopefully) as it gets closer to his August, 20th, 2021 release date, there will be more available (hint hint).
Kerry’s up-front horn playing on Hank Mobley’s “This I Dig Of You” made it an instant favorite for me… in fact, this performance won me over right away, and won a place on my iPhone player (something reserved for ONLY the very best)!
The ultra-swingin’ intro to Kerry’s original, “Free For All”, set the pace for a totally enthralling 8:21 full of swirling & whirling creativity… it’s “full of fresh” and definitely in “movement mode”… one of the best jazz originals I’ve listened to (yet) in 2021.
You’ll enjoy the lighthearted atmosphere on the performance of “Just A Few” by Milton “Shorty” Rogers, I have no doubt… you might even find yourself dancing ’round your living room after the first few bars, lol.
Since I’m a keyboard players, I found the (almost) boogie piano on the intro for Kerry’s “10-4 Jam” was my personal favorite of the eight exciting songs offered up for our jazz enchantment… Kerry’s horn is the essence of “fluid”, and will capture your ears immediately!
I give Kerry’s Turning Circles a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98… it’s certainly one of the best debut albums I’ve heard (yet) this year. Get more information as it becomes available on Kerry’s website. Rotcod Zzaj
