In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviewed Tommy Halloran's new album, Moan & Shout. He had this to say:

...Halloran has made some friends in the local blues, jazz and singer-songwriter scenes, and many of those pals pop up on his lovely Moan & Shout. Members of the Soulard Blues Band, the Funky Butt Brass Band and the Bottoms Up Blues Gang sit in and give an appropriately breezy feel to Halloran's low-slung ditties. Pianist Matt Murdick is a sideman extraordinaire, able to hang back with broad, open chords or drive the rhythm with a New Orleans shuffle, as on the album-closing "Easiest Thing in the World."
