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 Blues and surging Rock elements that coax the spirit toward higher ground. Currently serving on the faculty of Benedictine University and Northwestern University, the guitarist calls Northern Illinois home. An expressive guitarist with a lot to say, Moulder finds time to pour forth forcefully as well as sitting back with a relaxed attitude. At opposite ends of the spectrum, we find his acoustic model spinning mellow ballads and his electric model blazing contemportary trails freely. In between, the guitarist expresses passionately while sharing the microphone with his guests. "Pieta" features acoustic guitar and English horn in a smooth ballad setting. "Resurrection" builds to a fiery electric guitar plateau that's surrounded by a colorful palette of contemporary textures. "Freedom" introduces guitar Blues into the grogram, while "Exodus" marches forward with a consonant harmonic outlooks from vibraphone and guitar. "Chaos" features soprano saxophone with electric guitar in a tense situation, while "Creation" rolls with the punches for an easygoing, contemporary affair. Standout guests soloists on this recommended session include Paul Wertico, Paul McCandless, Brad Wheeler, Rich Corpolongo, and Laurence Hobgood.
