Same Mother

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gary Giddins
The most admired pianist of his generation, Moran has the rare ability to conceive his recordings as specific projects, each different from the others. This time he augments his trio -- Tarus Mateen and Nasheet Waits -- with guitarist Marvin Sewell for a provocative exploration of blues, refurbishing for a hip-hop world R&B (“Jump Up”) and traditional (“I’ll Play the Blues for You”) styles, with Mal Waldron (“Fire Waltz”) and Sergei Prokofiev (an excerpt from his film score for Alexander Nevsky) tossed into the mix. Moran’s startling, evenly fingered piano runs, and Waits’s bombardment of highly musical percussion seal it.

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Boundary-pushing pianist Jason Moran expands his sound yet again with a blend of modern electric and acoustic blues on Same Mother. Featuring longtime bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits, Moran's seventh album also includes guitarist Marvin Sewell. An equally adventurous musician, Sewell adds a modern blues sound to Moran's usual mélange of post-bop, classical, New Orleans jazz, and funk. The results are raw, inspired, and frankly not wholly pleasing as Sewell's crisp acoustic attack does not always blend well with Moran's equally naked piano chops. However, for fans of both forward-thinking jazz and roots music, Same Mother -- a conceptual nod to the unifying notion that we are all ultimately descended from one mother -- holds considerable surprises. Notably, Moran's "Gangsterism On the Rise" is a bumptiously funky avant-garde ride, while his "G Suit Salvation" finds the group wading deep into softly experimental Pat Metheny waters. Similarly, the atmospheric, Arabic-influenced "Restin'" and "Field of the Dead" which Moran deftly co-opts from Sergei Prokofiev's 1938 score for the Sergei Eisenstein film Alexander Nevsky are darkly epic country-death ballads featuring Sewell's moaning acoustic slide guitar.
