Drumming virtuoso Stanton Moore's most recent album With You In Mind was released this past week. Moore is well known as a founding member of the jazz funk band Galactic. The band formed in 1994 in New Orleans under the name Galactic Prophylactic. The name was shortened by the time the group released their debut album 1996's Coolin' Off. Throughout their eleven album career, the group has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Macy Gray, Mavis Staples and hip-hop artists Juvenile and Boots Riley.
Though he’s kept busy with his work in Galactic, Moore has also made time for a successful solo career. His first of seven solo projects was 1998's All Kooked Out. Moore is also well known for his educational activities, regularly making drum tutorial videos and he has won the Reader's Poll of Modern Drummer Magazine for Educational Book and Educational DVD. His most recent album features collaborations with Trombone Shorty and Cyril Neville.
