I admired Stanton and the various cuts I've heard him on, then I got his video, and he just blew my mind. If you haven't seen his DVD, you should...

Thanks Stanton!!

I interviewed Stanton for Classic Drummer magazine in 2006, and then we got together at NAMM in January, '07. He's a great guy, and a terrific drummer. Funky as hell; he has the New Orleans groove down. I think you guys know that already. We were both endorsing Bosphorus cymbals at that point in time, and Stanton helped me pick out one of his Wide Rides in the booth. He gave it his stamp of approval. I still have it. Great cymbal.

For anyone interested, Stanton is doing an indiegogo campaign to fund a cd by his jazz trio.

There are many ways to contribute for cds, vinyl records, meet and greets, drums, cymbals, etc.

Update: it got funded!

I saw him at a local REMO clinic back around 2003. Great guy; seeing him take straight beats and grease them up was really inspiring to me as a beginner, feeling stuck at the time with RLRL LRLR.

I ran into (literally) Stanton Moore at the Chicago Drum Show two weeks ago. While I couldn't get a picture, I did get to run into him. He was looking the opposite direction while venturing across the exhibit area. I aimed myself and managed to obtain a giant bear hug before he knew what hit him.

Hello All,

I am not a "second line" type however, this "composite" from New Breed (note: the asterisk measure) THAT ONE measure as a groove in the style of "New Orleans Second line" drumming... seems to fit the style..

stantons work on corrosion of conformitys arms of god album was fantastic, made that band sound so much more drum technical more than any other drummer ever has for coc. Ill have to say my fav album from coc is arms of god with stanton moore on drums.

I watched a couple of his solo's and him teaching and i just couldn't see it. He seemed kinda egotistical and i wasn't super impressed with his playing. Maybe i need to check some more videos out. Any recommendations

Troll bait?

I went to one of his recent jazz trio shows. The guy was extremely nice during the show and utterly refused to take a bow, despite it being his trio. He kept deferring praise to the guy playing bass (a real weirdo with Doc Brown hair and a question mark suit on, but man he could play) and the pianist.

Afterwards he stood in the corner to greet people and sign autographs, something few of the acts do. I was second in line behind a woman with 40 things she was clearly going to sell on eBay, but he signed everything with a smile, talked to everyone in the line, even let me make a joke about how short he is and waited patiently for us to frame him and me in pictures.

As for the playing: it's New Orleans jazz and second-line, it's supposed to sound a little loose. But I don't know of any other player that comes close to his level in that genre.

Yes. go to one of his clinics. he is far from egotistical and in person you would be impressed believe me.
 
I saw Stanton with Galactic in Pittsburgh at the Rex, I was right up front and man....that band was killer. His grooves are soooo tasteful and tight. What a great time.

Hey guys, Rich here. I am here to talk about the future of Stanton DJ and Deckadance. We just purchased Deckadance and we are very excited about things we have planned for the future. We have lots of ideas. We are interfacing with a lot of working DJs as partners. We are in the baby steps stages of a whole new Stanton DJ but we wanted to get in here and start talking with you guys about it.
