Stanton Moore: New Album

Galactic's Stanton Moore Releases Groove Alchemy

Stanton Moore
Best known as a founding member of New Orleans-based funk band Galactic, Stanton Moore releases Groove Alchemy on April 13.

The 12-track CD is the culmination of Moore's multimedia project that also includes an instructional book and DVD of the same name.

All three facets of the project are designed to explore the roots of funk drumming by examining the work of pioneers like Jabo Starks, Clyde Stubblefield, and Zigaboo Modeliste – each of whom made their mark at different times throughout the 1960s as the engines driving James Brown's and the Meters' legendary rhythm sections – and in turn tracing their influences back to the rhythms coming out of New Orleans in the earlier part of the 20th century.

Moore's trio on the new recording includes Robert Walter and guitarist Will Bernard – both of whom appeared on the drummer's two previous Telarc recordings, III (2006) and Emphasis! On Parentheses (2008).
