Moving Day is the second release of New York City based bassplayer/composer Mark Wade as bandleader.

Although solidly within the time-honored tradition of piano-bass-drums jazz trios, Event Horizon, the Mark Wade Trio's 2015 debut recording, was quickly heralded as something refreshingly different.

Down Beat critic John Ephland called the CD "as interesting in form as it is with pure expression, the nooks and crannies evidence that a real group-mind is at work." "All three musicians," Jeffrey Uhrich said of bassist-composer Wade, pianist Tim Harrison, and drummer Scott Neumann in his review for All About Jazz, "are tuned into one another, listening and asserting their individuality when the moment is right, yet maintaining an energetic unity and balance throughout the disc." The success of Event Horizon landed Wade a spot as one of the top 10 bassists of 2016 in the Down Beat Readers' Poll.

In the short months between the recording of Event Horizon and its February 2015 release, Wade began writing some of the seven harmonically-and-rhythmically challenging original tunes, as well as unique arrangements of two standards, that now comprise Moving Day, the trio's follow-up CD.

The warm reception by radio, press, and the public that greeted the first disc helped the three musicians secure more club and concert engagements than ever before, giving them numerous opportunities to further cultivate their already tight, seemingly telepathic interplay.
