From The Root To The Fruit
2016 two CD set from the Nick Moss Band. From The Root To The Fruit presents the musical story of the birth and growth of the blues genre as it relates to popular music. "The first CD has a bit of 40's and 50's jump blues, Texas, Chicago, and Uptown sounds. The second CD focuses on progressive/experimental music and delves into 60's soul, garage punk sound, high rhythm, soul, and harder sounds," says Moss. "I wanted to showcase my band. They're a group of guys who just keep growing musically and getting better and better. I also recognized that, as a band leader, I was growing too. And since From The Root To The Fruit is about the growth and development of music, it became an appropriate catalyst to tell the band's story and my story with the band."
