Album Review

Bassists and bass fanatics should find much to salivate over on Joseph Patrick Moore's all-bass solo CD, Alone Together. Moore performs all the basses here, more often than not multi-tracking himself with various accompaniment on different basses; he is technically proficient on both acoustic double bass and the myriad electric kinds.

The music is resolutely jazz-based, but also features funk, rock, classical, world, modern atonal, and soul styles. Many of the songs lean toward the avant-garde and feature fuzzy soundscapes and impressionist textures, even when Moore attacks a standard such as the album's namesake.

This makes for a beautiful if somewhat preconceived and clinical listen. Nonetheless, a project this ambitious and unique is worth checking out.
