@ allmusic : The impressionistic approach of visual and musical artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Maurice Ravel inspire Moran’s playing and writing style, on both his own compositions.

@last.fm : He’s established himself as a risk-taker, a seeker of new directions for jazz as a whole. Looking to the wider world of art for inspiration, Moran has found it in edgy 20th century painters.
