Eddie Moore is diligently pulling Kansas City’s jazz scene into the 21st century. Since moving here from Houston in 2010, the 30-year-old keyboardist has done as much as any jazz-oriented musician to bring Kansas City up to date.
Moore’s background has provided him with an expansive perspective that permeates his vibrant new Kings & Queens. In addition to his immersion in the church-based sounds infusing the jazz, R&B and hip-hop of his native Houston, he collaborates with an astonishing array of acts in Kansas City. Moore regularly performs in reggae and indie-rock bands and leads a monthly jam session that welcomes rappers as well as jazz musicians. - Bill Brownlee, (Plastic Sax)
