ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
‘MANGOES, Musical Shorts Volume 1’ is an eclectic collection of short, original, acoustic instrumental pieces showcasing Jeremy Moyer’s aptitude and spirit as a composer and performer in a wide range of folk-based and contemporary styles ranging from meditative gong music and erhu smooth jazz to groovy hand drumming and raw folk fiddling. The album was recorded in Moyer’s attic studio in a 100-year-old courtyard house in the village of Zhujiajiao, near Shanghai and it was mixed and mastered in Canada by J. Richard Hutt.

With a few exceptions, Moyer plays all the instruments on this recording. He uses 2 varieties of ‘huqin’ - the Chinese two-stringed fiddle – the erhu and the yehu. He also plays acoustic guitar, bass and a variety of Chinese and western percussion instruments.

Wonderful World Fusion music by accomplished multi-instrumentalist
The soothing tones and inviting melodies of multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Moyer’s fine CD, "Mangoes, Musical Shorts, Vol. 1," adds up to a thoroughly enjoyable World Fusion listening experience. Making the intricate fretwork on various instruments sound effortless, Moyer’s skills are front and center, both as a musician and as a composer. The peaceful, lulling track, "Bedtime Stories," utilizes the aforementioned string instruments to their maximum potential; the melody is that of a familiar lullaby, but unique twists are added that make this rendition truly singular. "Worker's Theme Song," with its expressive percussion, adds a rhythmic element to the album, while the Brazilian feel of “El Chino Guapo” showcases yet a different side of Moyer’s musical reach. For World Music that's exciting and different, but not daunting, Jeremy Moyer’s "Mangoes, Musical Shorts, Vol. 1" is a great choice.
