I would have missed this! I am grateful and blessed to have great music campadres to receive new music from at MD and from friends!!!!
MOON HOOCH - MOON HOOCH - ( Debut album released 13 June 2013)
Moon Hooch is a Brooklyn-based collaborative trio (Mike Wilbur - tenor saxophone, Wenzl McGowen - tenor saxophone, James Muschler - drums) that formed in the summer of 2010. Their music is a fusion of house, dance, drum and bass, jazz, world, and classical music. In the past year or so, they have made a mark on their listeners (and general passersby) in the city by playing in public places (like Central Park, Brooklyn subway stations, etc.), and will be joining Mike Doughty on his fall 2011 tour. Like them on Facebook, if you dare (it has links to their bandcamp and music). ( Last.FM bio).
This is an uplifting sax album! Very unpredictable and a joy to listen to! The sound bounces back from ragtime jazz to bebop to contemporary to avant garde all at once!!!! There is a presence of a hard rock base here also!
One of the best albums I have heard in awhile!
Here are some tracks , there are 14 tracks on this treasure!. enjoy!
