Mighty Mo Rodgers – Dispatches From The Moon
The father of nu bluez confirms his standing as a genius and a precursor with this new release, the fourth chapter of an unprecedented odyssey through the poetic meanderings of the blue note. Mo has taken refuge on the moon this time; in his own iconoclastic way, he's sending us musical dispatches dealing with the often sad, sometimes happy, state of our world. The blues équivalent of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, no less!
