FALL SOMEWHERE (Fresh Sound New Talent FSNT 417). Bill McHenry (ts) and others. November 2011. ****
This is a striking, exploratory and often compelling release by bassist Moreaux, whose medium-weight, lyrically charged pizzicato lines, set within a variety of engagingly fresh group textures and solo interaction, distinguish a good deal of this music: try his solos on Joyful, Reykjavik and the title track forwidely differing aspects of a broad and deep musical persona. The music might be seen as a multi-planed journey towards the sort of utopia of which post-bop and free improvisers have often dreamed, mixing lyrical, free-tempo group improvisation with appealing melodies and shifting group harmonies. A practically painterly session of commendable ambition and achievement. (Michael Tucker)
