Joseph Patrick Moore – Memphis, TN

MAIN BASS: Pedulla 5 string, Kohler Upright
INFLUENCES: Miles Davis, Donald Brown, Marcus Miller
STYLE: jazz, r&b, Hip Hop

“A musician with a broad musical background.  Joseph Moore began playing saxophone in elementary school and played drums  in the high school band. At 16, he took up bass guitar and began playing live just one year later. After high school, Joseph began playing upright bass and majored in music at the University of Tennessee. Over the last four years, Joseph has garnered acclaim for his playing in a variety of settings, including symphony orchestras and with artists as diverse as jazz rapper Gil Scott Heron and unrepentant folky Judy Collins. He’s also been working on his music performance degree at Memphis State University. On his four song demo tape Joseph plays electric bass keyboards and guitars, as well as programming the drum machines. His songs feature innovative changes which maintain a flowing groove.  Wheter he’s slapping, poppin, slidding, flawing or finessing. Fans of contemporary jazz fusion bass work should find his demo to be of great interest.” – Mike Varney
