Does Stanton Moore have the greatest snare sound (ever)? With Robert Walter on keys and Will Bernard on guitar, what’s not to love (about this)? These guys know how to have a (really) good time, as the song titles will attest. For instance, check out the (toy) piano solo on Wissions (of Vu). Schroeder (and Margaret Leng Tan), eat your hearts out. One gripe: it’s a mere 47 minutes (long). Skerik’s tenor, which filled out much of Moore’s previous release (III), is not really missed here–Moore manages to make the drums sound like a lead instrument–but if a horn player had guested on, say, two additional tracks, this would hardly be overcompensatin’. At any rate, great Telarc sound (as is so often the case).

E-Mile Note:
”Hi MFS equipe,
seems the Tony Monaco was a blast,
(I know, it is a blast :-)
maybe I’ve got something here I purchased not so long ago, that
would be also interesting to share…
(I posted this too at the friendly but more jazzy orientated folks
over at the Dark Blue Notes-blog also btw)
I feel this should be right at home for MFS and it’s listeners,
it’s not kinda OOP or rare, just very exciting & very funky :-)
PLEASE do buy this record if you like it!!!
Again, MFS equipe. my sincere love & thanks
for all the work you put into the blog-o-sphere,
be good & be safe,
