Alto sax and clarinet player Michael Moore is renowned all over the world for his beautiful tone and his rich musical imagination. The California-born reeds player combines the best of different worlds: the finesse of the American jazz tradition, the anarchy of New Dutch Swing and the unusual sounds of non-Western folk music. In his Fragile Quartet he plays with pianist Harmen Fraanje, double bassist Clemens van der Feen and drummer Gerry Hemingway. Michael Moore is active in the Amsterdam improv scene as a writing member of ICP Orchestra, as the leader of his own bands and as the owner of the Ramboy label. Moore won important international awards and collaborated with, among others, Joey Baron, Misha Mengelberg, Lee Konitz, Dave Douglas, Han Bennink, Kenny Wheeler and Mark Feldman. ‘One of the finest jazz musicians working anywhere, either in the mainstream or the avant-garde’ (Chicago Reader).
