The Moore-McColl Jazz Society: “Electric Fantastic” – Beth Moore and Chance McColl present some lively original music on Electric Fantastic, their debut album. The disc opens with its title track, a hopping and exciting instrumental number featuring some great stuff on keys and a nice saxophone lead. “Like A Symphony” has a mellower beginning, but soon builds in energy. I love the groove on “800 East,” a cool, cheerful number composed by Chance McColl, featuring several good leads as well as a great bass solo. The band gets bluesy with “If You Really Loved Me,” which features some good work on organ and guitar. “I get so blue without you/Without you, I can’t go on.” The album’s only cover is an interesting take on Supertramp’s “The Logical Song,” this track featuring Scott Rasher on trombone. The band is made up of Beth Moore on vocals, piano and organ; Chance McColl on electric guitar and vocals; Joel Morris on drums and percussion; Tim Aucoin on bass; Caleb Lattimore on trumpet, Christopher Alpiar on tenor saxophone, and Declan Ward on alto saxophone. This album is scheduled to be released on August 21, 2020
