Jon Moody Releases Music for our Hands…
“Music for our Hands,” a 7-song EP from bassist Jonathan Moody, is now available. Usually known in the music industry as the Social Media Manager for GHS Strings and an afficionado of bow ties, Moody’s first EP draws heavily on his classical background, while combining his years of gigging with a wide variety of groups and genres over the past twenty years in the SW Michigan music scene.
A fan of the solo bass genre, Moody’s album also pays homage to earlier influences. “Back when I was learning the Bach Cello Suites (on string bass), I was told to get the Dmitri Rostropovich recordings. Aside from the musicianship, the way that the recording captured every nuance, breath, bow stroke was exciting. Closing your eyes, you’d think Rostropovich was in the room; that’s what I wanted to convey ultimately with this album.”
In addition to digital and physical copies, Moody has also made available the sheet music (notation with accompanying tablature) for all seven songs on the EP. This is perfect for those musicians that would like to invest the time to learn the pieces and delve deeper into Moody’s compositions.
“Music for our Hands” is currently available on Bandcamp and CD Baby.
