Stanton Moore Trio 

Best known for propping up the free-form jazz-funk of Galactic with his beats, Stanton Moore has had a slightly schizo year of recording since Katrina. He started out contributing his jazz chops to a titanium-heavy release, In the Arms of God (Sanctuary), from the semi-local hard-rock gang Corrosion of Conformity, and followed it up by playing alongside local luminaries including David Torkanowsky and James Singleton on After the Rain (Rounder), soul queen Irma Thomas' latest album. In the midst of all this, he found time to get with his formidable trio to record at Preservation Hall -- the finished product, III, drops from Telarc records on Sept. 26. Moore's solo stuff gets a little grittier and more organic than Galactic's space grooves, and this goes even further. Will Bernard's guitar twangs plaintively over the Metairie native's rattling snare on a spare cover of "When The Levee Breaks," and the closer, "I Shall Not Be Moved," is a delicate and shivery gospel blues tune. The funkier tracks on the record also feature star turns from Robert Walter, who's credited with much of the songwriting on the album, and his shimmering Hammond B3, as well as frequent Galactic guest Skerik on tenor sax and Mark Mullins on trombone. Tickets $10. -- Alison Fensterstock
