Post a Comment. Total Pageviews. Powered by Blogger Tricks. Moe Koffman was a Canadian jazz musician who played not only the flute but also rocked the sax and clarinet just like our very own Trampy.
Having established his reputation as a talented flautist in the late s and s, Moe's Curried Soul saw Koffman move from straight-up jazz into the world of fusion. The title track is the winner here, funky and jazzy in equal measure. If you can tolerate jazz flute you'll surely find a lot to like — great guitar, nice horn section and presumably to justify the "curried" part of the title just a tickle of sitar The rest of the album has a definite s Sesame Street vibe going on particularly the cover of You Are My Sunshine which jars somewhat as it immediately follows Curried Soul but Koffman's covers of High Heel Sneakers and Cantelope Island are worth a listen.
By Trampy and the Tramp Born in Toronto, Koffman played violin at age nine. Later he took up clarinet, sax, and flute at age In he won a jazz poll in 'Metronome' magazine which garnered him a record deal with Mainstream Records in New York who released two records on 78 RPM.
After six years on the road Koffman returned to Toronto and formed the Moe Koffman Quartet to play clubs and concert halls where they were highly in demand. On the suggestion of a friend, they recorded a demo tape which landed them a record deal with Jubilee Records. Their first record for them was originally an original by Koffman called "Blues A La Canadiana" but was changed by the producer during the recording session to "Swingin' Shepherd Blues" becoming a smash hit in Koffman has stuck mostly to session and other studio work like Bach Sonata's on GRT Records in the '70's while also performing at Colleges and clubs with his band.
He was music director at George's Spaghetti House in Toronto for over 20 years. In the 80's he would sign to Curried Soul - Moe Koffman - Moes Curried Soul Street Records producing music that was back in style once again -- be-bop jazz plus 'cover material' by the masters.
