About this Item
This album, being a solo work by Moran, is unlike his other albums, but is a logical extension of them. It opens with a cover of James P. Johnson's "You've Got To Be Modernistic". Moran shows a mastery of old styles and an ability to expand on them in logical and interesting ways. The next track is "Body And Soul" which Moran makes it become his own version. Moran also includes two new versions of his "Gangsterism" series and they are both great. There is also a song he does on mini-piano "Moran Tonk Circa 1936" which is Moran writing a piece of his own. The other originals are are excellent as well.
