New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore combines a laidback beat with rock energy and percussive pyrotechnics that have made him a true drummer’s drummer, being the session percussionist of choice for a diverse who’s who that includes Dr. John, Aaron Neville, John Scofield, John Medeski, George Porter and Leo Noccentelli (the Meters), Bonerama, the New Orleans Klezmer Allstars and Anders Osborne, to name a few. But it is on his new album “III” (Telarc) that Moore’s diverse chops as a player really come through in an expanded drums, organ, guitar format, and it is that repertoire that will be spotlighted in this club appearance in support of the new album.
