Rob Mosher’s band Storytime – whose new album, The Tortoise, is a lushly scored musical odyssey that contains echoes of Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans, Kurt Weill, Darius Milhaud, Debussy and Bach – reflects Mosher’s embrace of a wide range of influences which have coalesced to create his singularly independent compositional voice. Storytime traverses many musical landscapes — all held together by Mosher’s multi-faceted orchestration and ingenious use of instrumentation (saxophones, oboe, English horn, clarinets, flute, trumpet, French horn, trombone, electric and acoustic guitar, plus bass and drums).
A Canadian currently residing in New York City, award winning composer and performer Rob Mosher plays oboe, English horn and soprano sax.
On October 4, from 5-7pm, Storytime will be the featured band at St. Peter’s Church Jazz Vespers. Read more about this unique church and their jazz ministry here.
