John McNeil had the idea of applying some of Gerry Mulligan's arranging principles to free jazz after arranging some of the late baritone saxophonist's music for a tribute band. Recruiting baritone saxophonist Alan Chase, bassist John Hebert, and the much in-demand drummer Matt Wilson, McNeil's experiment creates some provocative music. "Deadline" features a constantly shifting time signature, changing its mood throughout the piece, contrasting it with the more steady and loping "A Time to Go." McNeil's humorous take of "Bernie's Tune" (long a part of Mulligan's repertoire, though written by Bernie Miller) quickly takes it away from its roots for a wild ride on his horn into the world of free jazz. He also adapts Arnold Schoenberg's 12-tone classical music into his realm with his playful arrangement of "Schoenberg's Piano Concerto." Throughout the session the band is up to the challenges of McNeil's compelling music, producing a provocative CD that should open ears for decades to come.
In mid summer 1994, just two weeks before TAD MOROSE was scheduled to record the second album, Danne quit the band due to personal problems and musical differences. The recordings were postponed until a suitable, replacement could be found. Fortunately, the band recruited Peter Morén, a true soul mate. So, in mid October they once again entered the Wave Station Studio to record Sender Of Thoughts. Shortly thereafter Rossi was replaced by bassist Anders "Modden" Modd, leaving Christer as the only founding member. With this release, TAD MOROSE established themselves as one of the finest acts in Progressive Metal.
