Re: Stanton Moore
while i do take your point on board, and wholeheartedly agree that jamband drummers do deserve more recognition you have to understand that Stanton is in a league of his own making.
This guy was born and bred on new orleans stuff. so what? there are loads of classy new orleans drummers. this is true but if you look at his dvds you see how totally immersed and well versed in many different styles/genres this guy is and how he's able to mix em all up and make them so unique. I could not have mor erespect for him even on an intellectual basis because of his vast knowledge of so many styles and his ablitily to incorporate them so easily into his playing.
Not meaning to offend just saying, that's what i think differentiates him from so many other jamband drummers.
