Meet Mike Moreno

1 comment on Meet Mike Moreno


Second listen to this beautiful mix.
You were right: Mike Moreno is now my fav too.
"Coup de cœur" to Peaceful Warrior from Aaron Parks and the real beautiful version of But Beautiful.
I didn't know Leonardo E.M. Cioglia & Myron Walden. Much thanks for the intro.
You offer us a very fine jazz. Thanks

You're welcome, and thank you.

Mike Moreno led me to Leonardo E.M. Cioglia, the Brazilian bassist and composer. Cioglia's album "Contos," from which I've taken two cuts for this mix, is one my favorite albums ever. "Contos" is very evocative of place and mood and Mike Moreno has a lot to do with that.

In addition to being a particularly inventive guitarist, Mike Moreno is also a fantastic collaborator, as you've heard here. In particular his work in ensemble and duets ("Still Here") with Aaron Parks is especially beautiful.

You can see Mike Moreno with his quartet at the time (Adam Cruz on drums, Matt Clohesy on bass and Peter Schlamb on vibes) performing Billy Strayhorn's "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing" here:

Thank you for the conversation :).
Liked this video, finding the play from Moreno on guitar very sensitive.
Leonardo E.M. Cioglia is absolutly underrated, as you said, on boarders about mood and "délicatesse" with his double-bass.
And really I loved the playing of Myron Walden on sax. He has something brilliant and delicate as Coltrane has. Think he is (will be) one of the top contemporary saxophonists.
Like his manner to blow in the horn here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vbpm1LiWDt4
Thanks again for all the discoveries and nice mixes. Greetings. Sabine
