http://www.rockwired.com/nickmorantrio.jpgFEBRUARY 5, 2012 - The weekly online radio series Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is back and is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features an exclusive interview with jazz guitarist Nick Moran of The Nick Moran Trio regarding his brand new release No Time Like Now. In the opening segment, Moran discusses the inspiration behind the tracks of his new CD, working with his trio comprised of organist Brad Whiteley and drummer Chris Benham and his affinity for the six-string. The second half of this edition of Jazzed and Blue will feature music from such jazz and blues artists as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Victor Wainwright and the Wild Roots, Teddy Pressberg, Veronneau, The Dangling Success and more. “After being gone for about three months, it is great to finally be back and doing this show again. " says Jazzed and Blue host Brian Lush. “It's a real treat to end a long week with a show like this and to kick back and listen to some great music."

With every well-placed note and every incisive solo on Nick Moran's new album No Time Like Now, the guitarist brings an urgent creative agenda to the table. Featuring organist Brad Whiteley and drummer Chris Benham, both rising players on the New York scene, No Time Like Now is a potent trio session that focuses on Moran's stirring compositions and arrangements, venturesome material that consistently moves beyond organ combo conventions.  The CD will be released March 6, 2012 on the Manor Sound label. Considering the music's searing emotional immediacy, it's not surprising that many of Moran's tunes were inspired by musicians, friends and even strangers who are no longer with us. This is a trio that can lock into a ferocious groove, but it's equally capable of ravishing, aching poignancy.

"Some of this music was inspired by loss," says Moran, who was born and raised in New York City. "I wanted to capture the immediacy of the moment, the preciousness of the time we have."

No Time Like Now is an impressive follow-up to Moran's 2006 debut, The Messenger, an organ trio session featuring an earlier incarnation of the band. While clearly steeped in the rich B3 tradition running from Jimmy Smith to John Patton to Wes Montgomery's classic sides with Melvin Rhyne, "we don't really play that way," Moran says. "This is not a 'Chicken Shack' band in any sense. We all love the organ bands, especially Dr. Lonnie Smith who's been a big inspiration. But at the heart of it, I come from a rock and blues tradition."

   ABOUT THE HOST:
http://www.rockwired.com/brian.JPGBRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn't looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED's way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. "Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable." says LUSH "But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I'd be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I'm the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions."
