In almost every category that matters—improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and technological experimentation—Moran and his group, the Bandwagon, with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits, have challenged the status quo each time out. With his latest Blue Note release, Same Mother, Jason ups the ante.
Same Mother marks the introduction to the Moran camp of guitarist Marvin Sewell, best known for his live and recorded work with Cassandra Wilson. A versatile and gutsy player in many styles, the Chicago-born Sewell contributes avant but greasy licks to "Jump Up" and "I'll Play The Blues For You"; some rawdog and fittingly ethereal slide-work to "Field of the Dead" and "Restin'"; and contrarily delicate, harmonically plush arpeggios to "Aubade," a number Moran and Andrew Hill penned together.
