John Moulder

Trinity

ORIGIN 82459

“The performances are exquisite, with sensitive performances on all instruments.”
Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide

Inspired by themes taken from the Judeo-Christian tradition with such titles as Creation, Chaos and Resurrection, the Chicago guitarist presents his interpretations in a suite of original sacred music. Along with his guests including Lawrence Hobgood, Paul Wertico & Paul McCandless, Moulder creates a work that is as adventurous and expansive as it is meditative and intimate.

REVIEWS:

JazzWeek (Ed Trefzger)
There is a small but long-standing tradition of jazz informed by faith, whether it's a Gospel-influenced tune, or more expansive spiritual pieces like the sacred works of Duke Ellington or Coltrane's "A Love Supreme." Guitarist and composer John Moulder has communicated his personal faith in a suite entitled Trinity, which is his musical interpreta ...
All Music Guide (Adam Greenburg)
In some ways in a similar vein as Duke Ellington's Sacred Music, John Moulder here creates a set of his own inspirational jazz. The performances are exquisite, with sensitive performances on all instruments. The mood is contemplative, meditative, as one would probably expect. Moulder's guitar strums out only what it needs to, with Laurence Hobgood' ...
Jazz Radio 247 (Rick Holland)
John Moulder has released a gem on Origin, entitled Trinity. This album is an excellent introduction to the man, the musician and the scholar. For those who do not know John Moulder, Father John, is an ordained priest at St. Gregory's in Chicago. He is a brilliant scholar, composer and artistic musician. The compositions on this album reflect no ...
All About Jazz (John Kelman)
While one can overstate the importance of parallel careers, it's hard to avoid touching on the subject with John Moulder. The ordained priest has also managed an active musical career in Chicago as a guitaristómost notably as a member of ex-Pat Metheny Group drummer Paul Wertico's trio for the past twelve years. It's easy to forget his spiritual le ...
JazzTimes, December 2006 (David R. Adler)
John Moulder of Chicago spent five years composing the material for his album Trinity. It's an epic three-part program inspired by religious belief, but it can be appreciated on any number of levels. The sound of the recording is tremendous, as are the performances - from such players as pianist Laurence Hobgood, saxophonist Brad Wheeler, trumpeter ...

Cadence, December 2006 (Jim Santella)
John Moulder fills "Trinity" with a program of originals that blend contemporary grooves with tradition. His guitar lights fires along the way, as he shares solo space with various guests. Moulder enjoys Smooth Jazz as much as Free Jazz and other creative pursuits. While his focus leans towards ballad interpretation, the session includes implied Bl ...
Chicago Tribune (Howard Reich)
Sacred music does not typically unfold in gritty jazz clubs. But considering that the headliner at the Green Mill over the weekend was a Catholic priest, the rarefied choice of material seemed thoroughly appropriate. Though guitarist John Moulder has been performing and recording steadily here for the past couple of decades, he achieved an ar ...
