Notes & Reviews:

Eric Moe is an alchemist of expressive extremes, from what he calls "beautiful quiet music" to "the rough, raucous stuff". His exquisitely controlled music distils rare eloquence, grace, force and beauty from the incongruous elements of pop, rock, jazz, African drumming and classical sources as diverse as Mozart and Stravinsky. Edgy and lyrical, gritty and elegiac, the works on this disc synthesize the harmonies of Debussy, the drum licks of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Bud Powell's extraordinary pianism and much more besides into an exuberant musical fusion.
