'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.
There have been no releases recently,
and Ramboy #05 - 'I'm an Indian, Too', has finally sold out.
There have been many interesting performances in the last period,
unfortunately I have few recordings to show for it.
However, I am planning recordings in Splendor, Amsterdam,
February 13th & 14th, with the 'Fragile' Quartet, this time with Gerry Hemingway on drums,
and March 8 & 9 a trio with Gerry and Barre Phillips.
Later in the year I hope to record 'Low, Slow & Wobbly', seen here:
some more trio music and, if things work out, finally document my 'Bigtet' project.
I'll keep you posted….
the Michael Moore Bigtet - with Eric Boeren - cornet, Wolter Wierbos - trombone, Giuseppe Doronzo - baritone sax, Kaja Draksler - keyboards, Jorrit Westerhof - electric guitar, Arjen Gorter - bass, Michael Vatcher - percussion
duo with Rogerio Bicudo (choros, South African, jazz and our own pieces)
duo with Achim Kaufmann
Low, Slow & Wobbly featuring Ziv Taubenfeld, Giuseppe Doronzo, Joost Buis and Salvoandrea Lucifora
