Mosby is a leading performer of quality small music ensembles providing live background, listening and concert music for Contemporary, Traditional*Jazz and Classical North Indian. Through his training, experience and education, Mosby offers music of the highest standard.
A contemporary jazz artist located in St. Louis, Mosby performs professionally with the finest jazz musicians in St. Louis with opening and featured performances at many of the major venues in town. His music has aired locally and nationally with performances on concert stages in San Francisco, Nashville and Russia. Mosby has composed for theater, modern dance, video, TV and film. For the past seven years, his focus has been on performance and composition for live stage.
" My jazz technique is grounded in a solid St. Louis Jazz Tradition of bebop and rhythm & blues. My eastern technique comes from study and membership in the Imdad Khan Gharana, an Indian family of master sitar musicians which reach back 500 years."
One of the things which distinguishes Mosby as guitarist and composer is an ability to meld 10 years study of classical north Indian music with a lifetime study of modal harmony, bebop and traditional jazz standards. He was instrumental in the development of the Imrat Gitar, a 20 stringed Indian guitar designed under the direction of his teacher and mentor Ustadt Imrat Khan. This hybrid sitar / guitar allows access to Indian melody and overtone harmony (see track 2 - east/west cd title).
