Moods, Vol. 1 Review

by Scott Yanow

The trio of guitarist Philip Catherine, flügelhornist Tom Harrell, and bassist Hein Van DeGeyn mostly performs group originals on this introspective, relaxed, and thoughtful set. Michel Herr's keyboards add atmosphere to three numbers. The music is subtle post-bop, sometimes quite eerie (such as the closing "A Time for Love"), and generally unpredictable. This set, and the slightly superior Moods, Vol. 2, deserve several listens.
