ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kenn Morr- Move On- A Review by Rootstime, Belgium

An enclosed flyer asks the following question: What does Kenn Morr have in common with Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, The Byrds, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Cliff, Carl Perkins & Willy Nelson? Care to take a guess? Well, here is the answer: their records were all produced at one time or another by the legendary sound engineer Bob Johnston. Surprised by this answer? You shouldn’t be, because Bob Johnston pulled together the best of Kenn Morr and put it all together on his 2004 album “New Moon Rising. The originality of the songwriter’s talent, the melodious, easy to pick up flow of the music, and his musical, maniacal insistence on perfection are more than evident in this work. That album was the big break-through for the Connecticut native Kenn Morr, who brought out a new album in 2006 under the title of “Coming Home,” and who has now sent us his most recent CD, “Move On.”

This time, he produced the album himself, and gave it a fuller sound by adding bigger instrumentals, including piano, mandolin, violin, lap steel, harmonica, and the subtle use of percussion. He attempted and achieved strong vocal support in three of the cuts: Rex Fowler sings with him in “Don’t Turn Around”, and the unique voice of Annie Golden is highlighted proudly in “Still Need Your Need” (an absolute high point of this record) and in “Girl With the Auburn Hair”. This little lady will live forever in our memory thanks to the song “Tell Me Your Plans” that she brought onto the hit lists in 1978 with The Shirts, even if that was 30 years ago. That performance resulted in her cameo appearance in “Hair,” both the musical and the movie.
But, we really want to talk about Kenn Morr and his new CD “Move On.” This work contains 12 good songs that he wrote himself, which each in its own right demonstrates his captivating vocal talent. After listening to most of these songs a few times, you can start to hum along with them. The songs have an intimate feel, and contain honest lyrics inspired by actual events. The title track “Move On” is a musical letter to a friend, advising him to forget the sad past, and to optimistically look ahead to the future. The same theme shows up again in the song “Don’t Turn Around.” The song “Blue Morn” is an autobiographical story about how Kenn Morr personally experienced the events of 9/11. On that day, he was near Ground Zero, and uses this song to describe his escape from New York and what his feelings were on that terrible day. Musically, the travels reflected in this CD take many paths. There are hints of reggae (“Get Back”), rock (“Let’s Take Tonight”), country (“River Song”), as well as Celtic influences. Kenn Morr shows us that he is an artist with many talents, and effortlessly holds his own across all those styles.
“Move On” is a very pretty and enjoyable album from a man whose voice reminds me of Elliott Murphy singing ballads. And Murphy certainly is one of the best, isn’t he? Kenn Morr’s final song on the CD is “Everything Will Be Fine.” We are convinced this is true for him.

Kenn Morr - "Move On" by "Lady" Jane Rushmore, Are U on Something.com

Kenn Morr, the insightful troubadour from Connecticut, is back with the forth collection of home-spun melodies called "Move On."

This time out he has created an easy rollin', yet provocative tapestry that offers a lot of advice in the form of life lessons learned along the road. Morr's whispering, grainy vocals shout sincerity, nevertheless the lyrics will get you to thinking. Take the title cut "Move On" where he sings, "Gotta get yourself back," but then advises to "move on." This paradoxical tune, as with all the rest, begs to be listened to several times.

As always with Morr's projects there is some fine playing too – pleasant piano-violin jam in the middle of "Make You Mine," tasty and subdued jazz piano opening with a fine harmonica blend on "Blue Morn," etc. The music covers you like a cozy blanket in a tent near the campfire.

A standout track is "Once More." In the opening line the singer lies, saying he's "Got no words to say right now," then proceeds to lay down 19 lines and a chorus worth of words including some of the finest on the CD: "When you're running low on love you know its hard to pay the price."

If you are already a Kenn Morr fan you won't be disappointed with his current offering, and if you are new to his music, the latest work is a fine place to start. To purchase a copy go to www.kennmorr.com




Kenn Morr- Move On- By Northeast Sounds
“Move On,” Kenn Morr’s fourth CD release, finds the Long Island-bred, rural Connecticut-transplanted singer-songwriter and his tight trio fashioning an especially intimate song cycle. Seldom do you hear music so reflective and detailedso honest, and once you’ve heard the album a time or two, you’ll have a tough time getting the memorable tunes out of your head.

Morr composed all the songs, most of which speak of very personal experience, from the opening title track, “Move On”—a musical letter counseling a friend to forget the broken past and embrace the future—to “Blue Morn,” an autobiographical account of the events of 9/11/01. Morr was near Ground Zero at the time and describes—in a moving, yet surprisingly tuneful way—the rush to leave the city where the people “were upside down” and “order wasn’t anywhere to be found.”

The CD takes the listener on a journey from grown-up rock through reggae, country, and Celtic flavors. Morr’s distinctively deep voice is the focus, and the singer also handles guitar,piano, mandolin, lap steel,harmonica and backing vocals. Dan Hocott supplies harmony vocals and deep bass grooves (stand-up, acoustic, and electric), while Bob Gaspar adds just the right colors on drums and an interesting assortment of percussion. Karen Nolan decorates a few of the songs with seductive violin.

Rex Fowler, voice of veteran folk ‘n’ roll heroes Aztec Two-Step, contributes a memorable vocal to “Don’t Turn Around”another song about embracing the present and future and not dwelling in the past. Romance is a significant part of this song cycle, especially in the two guest appearances by stage, screen, and recording star Annie Golden, who shares the vocal on “Still Need You Near” (a highlight) and adds a haunting, operatic refrain to “Girl With the Auburn Hair.”

“Get Back” is a sharp reggae number about returning to one’s core values. “Late Summer Skies” is one of the most evocative accounts of that catch-in-the-throat time of year that you’re likely to hear, riding lush waves of insects, ocean, and wind.

Put on this beautifully textured collection of songs after a long day—accompanied, perhaps, by “a smoke and a glass of red wine”—“get lost in the music like leaves in the wind” and “know everything will be fine,” as the beautiful concluding song suggests.

“Move On” is a richly rewarding CD to which you’ll look forward to returning.

Outstanding Adult Rock CD with Deep Messages Delivered with a Deep Voice
"Move On" by Kenn Morr is an adult rock album fused with a little country. The standout aspect of this CD is Ken's intimate and honest voice, which draws you in. The arrangements are subtle and deep with nice layers, including tasteful harmonies on a number of tracks. Kenn’s style is very laid back and "cool." Another great quality is the varying textures of the songs, each having it's own identity. You'll hear a great number of influences, such as reggae and Celtic, as well as an overall organic nature to the sound that supports the lyrical content. Highlights are "Get Back" with a nice piano progression and some smooth vocals. "Blue Morn" features some nice harmonica work, nice vocal delivery and interesting changes. "Girl With the Auburn Hair" is cleverly mysterious, with a road weary feel. If you enjoy adult rock/contemporary artists with deep voices and deep messages, you’ll enjoy this CD.
