2008’s “Coldest Memories” opened wide the floodgates for the presentation to the world of LR-60 & Mr. Moods' atmospheric, soaked-in-hooks style.
“Coldest Memories” brings forward LR-60’s captivating conglomerate of post-modern jazz, trip-hop, dub, chillout and so much more. LR-60 is professional trumpet player Skip Warren, who found the fulfillment of a vision when he discovered – via online contact –electronic artist Christian Denis – aka Mr. Moods. Through their correspondence they discovered that they shared the same musical goals and tastes.
Thus, Warren’s extensive jazz, blues and soul experience perfectly dovetailed with Mr. Moods’ electronic excursions.
LR-60 toured with the late “Disco Lady” Johnnie Taylor for four years in the late 70s and early 80s and also played with the late Z.Z. Hill for a year. He toured with blues legend Bobby “Blue” Bland for a decade from 1981 to 1991. That connection nabbed him countless shows with B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Greg Alman, Albert King, Little Milton, Clarence Carter, Tyrone Davis, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Wilson Pickett, Junior Walker & The Allstars, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, Millie Jackson and James Brown – just to name a few.
He also enjoyed a stellar opportunity – recording with gospel singer Kirk Franklin on the “Nu Nation Project” album with noted gospel artist Fred Hammond. LR-60 has also written and recorded original compositions for CNN.
