Ubiquity is a label that’s established a reputation for releasing music from the finest of the young jazzbos – artists who take free jazz riffs and embellish them with elements of soul, hip-hop, rock and experimental sounds to come up with cool-out music for the hipster set. On Boomshadow, Nino Moschella takes a few cues from His Royal Purpleness as “Time of Day,” “Something Like” and “Continue to Call” all settle into funky Prince-like grooves, while “Running” sounds more like it was inspired by Curtis Mayfield.

Moschella keeps the listener guessing as he trips into a psychedelic realm with the manic instrumental “New Orleans” one minute and sends the ethereal “Stella” floating on a subdued but extremely soulful vocal (with harp accompaniment) the next; artists as disparate as Leon Redbone (“What U Do 2 Me”) and Little Feat (“We Fight”) also are referenced. A quick listen to Boomshadow proves to be satisfying, but repeat listens reveal what a real gem Moschella has created.
