'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.
Beginning this Friday the three most recent Ramboy recordings,
#34 - Sanctuary, with the NDR Bigband
#35 - Cretan Dialogues, with the Fragile Quartet, and
#36 - Slips, with Barre Phillips and Gerry Hemingway
will be downloadable on bandcamp at:
Michael Moore Bandcamp
Bandcamp seems to be by far the most user friendly platform for musicians,
and this friday, October 2nd
they are waving their fee for all the music on the site, so please have a look!
On top of this I am offering a 20% discount on all downloads this weekend, October 2-4!
