"Cold nights in December"

"For those of you in the Tulsa area that love jazzy jamband music, then dont miss The Move playing at downtown t-town's favorite bicycle and beer joint, the Sounpony. Bart Taylor is the lead (and only.) guitarist in this amazingly tight little trio and he has got licks to spare while he soars above the wind beneath his wings, Ken Lane on bass. This guy drops more bombs than a Republican administration and keeps the precise and hypnotic beat along with six-armed drummer Tyler Hearn. These guys are reminiscent of John Scofield and medeski, martin & wood, while retaining a soul as original and unique as the guy who invented Fruit Roll-ups." - Porter Ragnus, The Current v.5 no. 12 December 2008 - The Current

"Tulsa's neighborhood music bar sees Okie invasion."

Closing out the bombastic Blursdays is Tulsa's own fusion fanatics, The Move, on March 27th. Bart Taylor is a helluva guitarist, pulling jazz licks into his jam/rock foundation, leaving those who dig Trey Anastasio and Steve Kimock besides themselves. And when he fills out the room with the mind blowing drum work of Tyler Hearn and bassman Ken Lane, heads bob because necks know its fat. -Kay Alexander. Vol. 5 NO.3 - The Current


We are currently working on material to begin recording our first EP at Cheese factory radio.



Having been compared to everything from The Pat Metheny Group to Medeski, Martin and Wood, our unique blend of jazz and rock has left our listeners with diverse comparisons. It all started in the garage of Tyler the drummers house. We use to just jam couple days a week here and there, but finally started developing chops when Bart and Ken played for the TCC jazz band on scholarship. Tyler also developed his chops for playing live, playing with several local cover bands. Owasso is known for not having a jazz program, so we basically all were self taught for the longest time. Coming together 2 years ago at the comeback of Tulsa's Reggae fest, we jumped at the opportunity to get our sound out there. What sets us apart is our sound. We are an instrumental band that plays around 15-20 originals and we do our own takes on traditonal jazz standards and put a twist on old tunes. You could say when you combine the elements we do live it could be considered fusion. Our live performances are very different. Never the same setlist, never the same jams. We also have a light guy which makes for a great auditory and visual experience. Mike Miller is our light guy and hes worked with several great Tulsa bands. When we are onstage we are playing with several years experience playing as a group and over eight just playing together as musicians. You might say when one comes to The Move show, you dont know really whats going to happen. One night we may have several great local musicians sitting in with us or we may have lights, smoke machine and a drum machine. One thing I can say with confidence. With all the watered down music these days our fresh sound, our brotherhood we share, and the God given gifts we share as musicians all of these things dont usually happen in the typical band setting. We offer a fresh look at an old picture you could say. Taking what we are rooted in as musicians (jazz,rock,classical) and throwing our take at it. In closing, I feel like when we play these improv sets we are preserving a tiny piece of musical history. The musical history of this great nation.
