Here’s a #ThrowbackThursday look at the video from the Robert Moore Kickstarter campaign that led to this month’s FRESH! From Reference Recordings release, Outta My Soul!
Outta My Soul
FRESH! From Reference Recordings
New to our Fresh! series is Robert Moore, jazz vocalist, composer, trumpet and harmonica player based in Portland. He has evolved a sound uniquely his own, mixing his Southern roots, influences of soul and gospel into his own distinct interpretations of bebop and swinging jazz.
Outta My Soul showcases six originals and six compositions from diverse writers including Frank Loesser, Sting, Gene Ammons and King Pleasure — one instrumental and eleven vocals from delicate to scat to blues proclamation. There’s even a Ken Nordine-esque spoken ‘word jazz’ number.
