Some recent reviews of “Tusk”

Tusk receives 4 stars in All About Jazz Italia! Here is the link for those of you who read Italian..

“Fascinating release from Sean Moran, whose nylon string guitar adds a bright element to this edgy modern jazz session. Music that takes odd angles and unexpected curves. With Chris Dingman on vibes, Harris Eisenstadt on drums, Mike McGinnis on woodwinds, Reuben Radding on bass, Moran has assembled a crew that knows how to navigate unconventional music. Highly recommended” (Dave Sumner, eMusic contributer)

“Sean Moran’s compositions and arrangements defy easy definitions or any labels; this is music of great imagination and intelligence, well worth exploring time and again for its creativity and the quality of the musicianship.” (Richard Kamins – Step Tempest) Read the full review here:

“Moran’s ability to conjure both subtlety and intensity from the nylon string guitar lends this album a profound sense of drama.  The haunting feel that populates the majority of this record perfectly frames Moran’s sound..” (NYC jazz record)

“Even grumpy nylon-string skeptics will get off on the rhythmically challenging and harmonically colorful tines of Tusk, the solo debut by guitarist Sean Moran” (The Village Voice)
