about

Drummer/composer Moorefield leads his 9 piece ensemble (three guitars, trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor saxes, bass and drums) through a set of brilliantly written instrumental art-rock. This is forward-looking, innovative music by an avant big band that rocks and swings. Moorefield has an exceedingly varied resumé, playing with everyone from hardcore bands to symphony orchestras, as well as Glenn Branca and Swans.

"Gives an impish, dissonant spin to a big-band sound...variety, forward drive, and a sharp wit"
-New York Times.

"Brainy yet bloodthirsty...Manhattan's Virgil Moorefield Ensemble sets a horn section against a trio of fine, fiery guitarists"
-Guitar Player.

"One of the year's ten best"
-Exposé .

"...an all too rare blast of fresh air. The label-defying music heard [here] is thick with surprising insights and enthralling musicianship."
- Frank-John Hadley/Downbeat writer.
