Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Stanton Moore

III

2006-10-13

This is the third solo release from Stanton Moore, drummer and co-founder of Galactic. If you like Galactic’s music, just wait until you hear Galactic’s drummer’s music! It’s the same! It’s one of those spin-off projects that doesn’t spin too far—not that there’s anything wrong with that. This is the same kind of genre-bending jazz we get from Galactic themselves, Medeski, Martin & Wood, John Scofield and our own Organissimo. No vocals, a bit of jamming. The native New Orleanian tops off the album with the bluesy “When the Levee Breaks” and a proud, hopeful take on the gospel classic “I Shall Not Be Moved”. – Arthur Longrapids
