Mike Moynihan is one of the brightest lights on the jazz horizon. He is a superlative player who deserves wider recognition.
There has always been a soft spot in my heart for great saxophone work. Mike Moynihan is beyond talented.Best sax soloist I know.
What I liked about Mike Moynihan and his group was the blend of instruments and the beautiful sound they produced.
Chronicles isn’t your typical freshman outing for a jazz saxophonist. Mike is killin’ it! The arrangements and compositions are perfect vehicles for this band to display all their talents. Mike is a musician highly deserving of wider recognition. Let this album be the first of many!!
...an exceptional debut.Moynihan displays real maturity in his playing and composing on Chronicles, and his strong band is right there with him all the way.A very enjoyable album, with none of the tentativeness of some debuts.
Mike Moynihan and Purple Spectre doing what makes Tuscon great. World class talent in a small town feel.
Mike Moynihan and his band Purple Spectre is doing it again here in Tucson! Reminds me of the days of The Village Vanguard. New, Fresh and Innovative musicians entrenched in giving the listeners a true experience.
This band is total fire…Mike, a quintessential artist in the Tucson music scene.
