about

With his brilliant new MoonJune Records release What's Rattlin' on the Moon?, veteran progressive musician and award-winning composer Beppe Crovella (Arti & Mestieri) delivers a heartfelt and long-overdue appreciation of one of the defining voices of the jazz-rock idiom, Soft Machine keyboard player and composer Mike Ratledge. This beautiful effort presents a fresh take on Ratledge's music through novel arrangements and the use of vintage keyboards not normally associated with the Softs (such as the Mellotron).Crovella’s choice of vintage keyboards is particularly inspired -- their organic tones aptly evoking the raspy timbres of Ratledge’s fuzzed-out organ and piano. Crovella’s deep empathy with the Ratledge sound ethos is also evident in the six original compositions by which he augments the program. What’s Rattlin’ is not only a supremely fitting homage to one of the giants of jazz-rock, but, in the spirit of its subject, moves the music forward in bold and imaginative ways.A well-conceived, beautifully-executed project from a true master.
