Melba Moore at Metropolitan Room, New York City 6-20-14

Melba Moore to Play Metropolitan Room, 6/20

After graduation she worked briefly as a music teacher, but a life in the classroom was not what she had envisioned for herself. Moorman was in a position to introduce her to several agents, and soon Melba Moore (a name she chose in honor of her stepfather, abbreviating it slightly) was on track for a singing career, making backup tracks (with Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson on Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" in 1966), some of them for stars as prominent as Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin - although she was not actually working in the same space with them.

    Jazz Jackhammers at UCSD

    Two very different trios graced the stage at UC San Diego’s Loft on June 4, providing the audience with three hours of music evenly divided between the mainstream and the exploratory.

    The Danny Green Trio opened the show with intricate and highly arranged original music, and, if you like Chick Corea, Mr. Green’s aesthetic is sure to please. Melodic cascades are a Green trademark, and on the opening tune, "6:00 A.M," the precise interplay between Justin Grinnell’s percolating electric bass lines and Julien Cantelm’s soft percussion dovetailed tightly with the leader’s melodically driven improvisations. "2 Ways About It" leaned heavily on Cantelm’s always-tasteful forward motion and a harmonic structure that reminded me of Bobby Hebb’s classic, "Sunny."
