So since Thursdays have turned into a jazz day I checked the Roots Music Charts for some names and checked out a few artist. At the top of the list and the first album I listen to was Stanton Moore’s new release Groove Alchemy and I didn’t get to listen to much beyond that but I do have a new jazz artist to listen to! It took me a while to remember where I heard the name but Stanton Moore played on and co-produced Anders Osborne’s new album American Patchwork.From Wikipedia:
Stanton Moore is a drummer raised in Metairie, Louisiana. Most widely known as a founding member of Galactic, Moore has also pursued a solo recording career (beginning with his 1998 debut All Kooked Out!) and recorded with bands as diverse as jazz-funk keyboardist Robert Walter and heavy metal act Corrosion of Conformity. He also travels internationally to teach New Orleans drumming, writes a regular column for drumming magazines, and releases instructional books and videos.
