To The Moon

Former Inquirer music critic Tom Moon has just released an album of bossa nova-informed jazz on the Frosty Cordial label. It's called Into The Ojala and is credited to the Moon Hotel Lounge Project. You probably already read David Adler's interview with the author of the wide ranging sonic guidebook 1000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die, in last Sunday's Inquirer A & E section. But if not, you can do so here. Patrick Jaredwattananon's NPR piece on Moon, who also critiques music for NPR and was a saxophonist who played with Maynard Ferguson in a previous life, is here. Go here to hear "Thank The Eyes." Read more about the architectural inspiration for Into The Ojala here. Tonight, the seven member MHLP, which includes former Huffamoose guitarist Kevin Hanson, plays L'Etage at 6th and Bainbridge, above Beau Monde. Sets are at 8 and 10, so go early and stay late.
