"...a towering quintet that harks back to the three years [Rea] profitably spent in the two Chinas. He has arranged for it a small number of choice Chinese tunes, old and recent, traditional and not, which become gorgeous jazz- and rock-inflected pieces in his and his colleagues’ hands. But the group covers a lot of terrain, drawing on 'fractured bebop,' as Rea puts it, as well as cranked-up, rhythmically complex rock – and much more ... Listening to the electric-string-quartet-plus-drums, you may find yourself swept over ice fields or other little-considered terrain." - Earshot Jazz - Earshot Jazz

Bio

In a typical Moraine performance, haunting melodies cohabit with crushing riffs, lush textures, propulsive swing, and explosive improvisation. Moraine has been enthusiastically received by audiences ranging from jazz aficionados to metalheads. The group has performed in high-profile venues including the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park, Artopia festival, Beyond the Threshold International Dance Festival, Sounds Outside, and the Jazz: The Second Century concert series presented by Earshot Jazz, and has opened for such renowned international artists as Richard Pinhas (Heldon).
