Criss Cross Jazz 1396 CD

Mike Moreno

Three For Three

Available: October 12, 2017

On his third Criss Cross leader date, Mike Moreno convenes drummer Kendrick Scott, who played on his fellow Houstonian's prior Criss Cross outings (Third Wish [Criss 1303] and First In Mind [Criss 1338]) and bassist Doug Weiss, who played on Third Wish.

They frame the 39-year-old guitarist's sui generis tonal on a program culled from the corpuses of a multi-generational cohort of heroes: jazz songs by Charlie Parker ("Perhaps"), Wayne Shorter ("The Big Push"), Joe Henderson ("Serenity") and Mulgrew Miller ("For Those Who Do"); songbook gems by Michel Legrand "You Must Believe In Spring"), Johnny Mandel ("A Time For Love") and Vernon Duke ("April In Paris"); plus one apiece by Radiohead ("Glass Eyes") and Lo Borges ("Clube Da Esquina No.1").

As always Moreno finds fresh pathways through familiar sonic landscapes on a date that is a master class in triological conversation.
