'Moore explores the boundaries of many musical traditions, moving them into common ground, not of form, but of feeling and depth, giving his music a universal quality which is hard to describe.' - freejazz-stef.blogspot.nl - March 10, 2009
Ramboy is a record label founded by Michael Moore in 1991. The first two releases offer an explanation of the label's existence; Ramboy #01 - "Trio Clusone" became the calling card of a working band, and Ramboy #02 - "Home Game" by Michael Moore Quintet had no home at the time. Since then the label has been used to document Moore's musical activities; sometimes working ensembles, sometimes special projects.

   Newly available from Michael Moore Trio:

   I am happy to announce the availability of two trio discs recorded a few years ago for the 'Between the Lines' label: 'Monitor', from 1999, and 'Air Street' from 2003.

   Both feature keyboardist Cor Fuhler and cellist Tristan Honsinger. Besides piano Cor Fuhler plays Hammond Organ and a homemade string/keyboard hybrid he named the keyolin. The sound of the keyolin is made with an Indonesian bow and the pitches are chosen on a touch-sensitive keyboard creating a sometimes otherworldly sound, especially in conjunction with Tristan's beautiful cello sound.

   With the exception one through-composed number the pieces are either completely improvised or improvisations based on simple points of departure.

   To my ears the music still sounds fresh and unpredictable.
