"the grooves that'll move you"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 02/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"High inspiration for each musician, and it shows with the eleven tracks on this outing by - Ray Brown (bass), Gene Harris (piano), Jeff Hamilton (drums) and the fourth member - Ralph Moore (tenor sax) - "Moore Makes 4", what other title could you want?Another Carl E. Jefferson (producer) and Nick Phillips (assistant producer) gem, like all the previous Ray Brown Trio sessions, this one had a twist - Moore picked some tunes and Ray put it together, he's a master of doing just that on the spot...that's what makes him so great. Brown who is always so generous, brought some tunes for Ralph to shine...and shine he does.Of course there are stand outs - "THE CHAMP", the 1944 John "Dizzy" Gillespie tune, gives Moore the necessary workout to prove he's worthy of the company he's in..."SQUATTY ROO", a zesty number composed by the great Johnny Hodges, Ralph leans back and takes it all in.And the highlight is - "RALPH'S BOOGIE", sort of the funky grandchild of "It Don't Mean a Thing", Ray composed this for Ralph to give him the spotlight, and Gene gets his two-cents worth in...what an awesome track this turned out to be.If you're a big fan of jazz, funk, blues and want something you can sink your teeth into...this Concord Jazz album is the one you've got to have...and that "jazz-lovers" is my final answer!Total Time: 51:54 on 11 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD-4477...(1991)"

"I am a long-time jazz lover and can state unequivocally that this is one of the best albums that I have ever purchased! Ralph Moore is fantastic and I don't understand why he has not recorded more often (pun intended)."
