Bob Moses has an inspirational, one world approach to the music we play called jazz…he is a learned, erudite musician who has lots of fun on his many instruments. He is circumspect. He listens to the world around him and recreates it in a world of music, made in America, a national treasure. – Abbey Lincoln
