“Jook Joint Preacher” with several members of the Hi Rhythm Section, which was the famous house band of Hi Records back in the ‘70s – including musicians Howard Grimes, Leroy Hodges, and Charles Hodges.
His latest project features nine originals by Moss, and the talents of Grimes on drums, Leroy Hodges on bass, Charles Hodges on keys, Tony Mathews on guitar, Dave Carr on saxophone, Boo Mitchell on cabasa and Julie Moss on backing vocals.
The project has several solo songs in the “bottleneck” style, according to Moss, and runs about 45 minutes long.
“We held a CD release Sept. 11 last year, at the Ground Zero Club in Memphis,” said Moss..

Online reviews have labeled the CD as “church with a serious groove.”
Moss believes music is “underestimated as a force for good in the world.” He said his involvement in social justice struggles allows him to use music to give others a voice “when something needs to be said.”
He’s also witnessed the healing power of music in diverse – and, at times, adverse – settings.
“There are more talented musicians than me, everywhere, but it’s hard to find anyone that gets into it like I do,” Moss told one online CD retailer. “I have enough fun for a whole crowd of folks.”
