Noted pianist and composer Eddie Moore will be unveiling songs from his latest recording, Intuition at the Prairie Village Jazz Festival - 6:20pm on September 9th. The festival is held in Harmon Park, close to 79th and Mission Road.

The Prairie Village JazzFest is a neighborhood festival. The city offers an evening of stellar live music and delectable food and drink. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Outside food and beverages are not allowed, as food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Festival admission is $5 for adults and free for children under 18.

Saxophonist Adam Larson is headlining the festival later that evening. He is releasing 3 new projects this year on the noted Outside In Music, record label. The project features bands from Chicago, Kansas City, and New York City.

Eddie Moore’s Intuition will be released in October. The first single from the album, A New Me, A New You will be available for the first time, on the day of the PV festival. That day, Moore will bring his quartet featuring Deandre Manning on the bass, Jaylen Ward at the drums, keyboardist Robert Tribitt, and guitarist Adam Schlozman.

Jazz runs deep in pianist and bandleader Eddie Moore's veins.

His yearning for exploration and curiosity in music contribute to an ebb and flow of freedom of expression. Raised in Houston, Moore began his musical journey at Texas Southern University. He received his master’s degree studying with Bobby Watson, at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Eddie Moore & The Outer Circle received 3 and a half stars from DownBeat Magazine for their first album, The Freedom of Expression, stating, “Moore's compositions exude a sophisticated soulful elegance that create a tastefully fulfilling venture into a range of dynamic pieces, with the musicianship to match.”

Diversity and inclusiveness have come to define Eddie Moore as an artist. His third album Kings & Queens incorporated elements of soul, R&B, rock and hip-hop into Moore’s take on contemporary jazz. Released on Ropeadope Records, the forward-thinking sounds are part of the rich continuum of African American music that is imbued with indigenous African elements.
