For his second set as a leader, the focus is almost entirely on tenor saxophonist Ralph Moor, who switches to soprano on two of the six numbers. Accompanied by pianist David Kikoski, bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Hart, Moore performs group originals, Wayne Shorter's "Black Diamond" and Bud Powell's "Un Poco Loco." Displaying a tone on tenor similar to John Coltrane's, Moore's note choices are more original than his sound. A solid modern mainstream set.
"Sleepless Nights" is the debut album by David Wenngren, however not the first album he's been involved in. He's been releasing music with various other projects and is perhaps most known for his work with Library Tapes. The nine songs of this album were all recorded during late nights and early mornings at a time when Wenngren went through a brief period of insomnia. The music is not that different than his work with Library Tapes but has a more experimental feel to it and Wenngren is putting more focus on strings and computer processing than piano this time, however there's a couple of stunningly beautiful solo piano songs on the album as well.
A Gary Moore box set titled Blues and Beyond has been set for release on Nov. 24. A press release for the album describes it as a “remarkable collection of his powerful and emotive blues studio recordings” and a fitting tribute to the Irish guitarist, who died in 2011.
