Moving Still is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson's Moment and the Message, which was voted the Number One album by a debut artist in the NPR Jazz Critics Poll and called 'a great modern jazz record that also sounds like joy and feels like a dance' by PopMatters. One of the most highly regarded young musicians on the scene, Finlayson was recently been named the Number One Rising Star Trumpeter in the Downbeat Critics Poll. He has been a member of alto saxophonist Steve Coleman's Five Elements for over 15 years, and plays regularly with the likes of such cutting-edge jazz artists as Steve Lehman, Mary Halvorson, Muhal Richard Abrams and Henry Threadgill. The music is filled with enthrallingly melodic compositional twists and turns: daring music with a firm sense of purpose.
