I rarely if ever review a record within days of receiving it. I usually take the time for repeated listening over a relatively long period, to let the record sink in and allow me to pick apart the highlights and what I really like. Yet I'm reviewing conversations days after having received it. That's gotta tell you something.

To say that I was eagerly anticipating Stanton Moore's jazz album would be an understatement. Ever since I first discovered Galactic, Stanton has stood out in my musical landscape as the foremost modern drummer. I started tracking down Galactic records, then moved to Stanton's own output (in particular the stellar Flyin' the Koop) and even the odd collaboration with other bands (Bonerama, Street Sweeper Social Club, etc.) I went as far as attending a 2 AM gig of one of his non-recodring projects Frequinox in New Orleans the only time I was there.

Still, I didn't see Stanton as a jazz drummer. Sure, his solo albums and the SM3 albums (with Will Bernard and Robert Walter) are labeled as jazz, but it's very very modern jazz, high on groove and low on harmonic exploration. Don't get me wrong, I love this stuff, but it's easy jazz for a blues-rocker to like. So when Stanton announced the Indiegogo campaign to fund Conversations, I was one of the first to pitch in: when an artist you like goes in a direction you don't expect, it's all the more exciting.

From the first notes of James Singleton's bass on the opening track Lauren Z, I knew I had a winner in my hands. A deep, organic bass sound, not the sanitized version you hear too often. Then Stanton's groove kicks in and adds another dimension altogether. Gorgeous.

In fact, what amazes me the most about this record is how jazz it sounds.

Jazz is alive and well in this wonderful album with: Stanton Moore; David Torkennowsky; and James Singleton. The New Orleans influence is unmistakable but not in the worn traditional sense. And, you don't feel as though you've heard the songs or the arrangements done before and better by the jazz greats. Truly an enjoyable experience. Let's hope the jazz world embraces it and gives it playing time.

Mr. Moore's approach to Jazz drumming is fresh, musical, tasteful, and inventive. His New Orleans and Funk chops are translated into the traditional Jazz style and the results are stunning. His style is unique, authentic yet respectful of the tradition. An enjoyable casual listen or an intense study for aspiring drummers. Jaw still on the floor from the solo on LaurenZ.

Great album. Clean sound , incredible drum work of Stanton Moore and great trio with David Torkannowsky al piano and James Singleton an bass. If you like the authentic sound of New Orleans this if you record. Incredible sense of rithm and beautiful melodies. Is not the classic "new orleans" is fresh and modern. Really good. Is pure classic jazz with South flavor. Sure you will hear it thousand of times. High recommend

Wow! An instant jazz classic. Stanton Moore has shown his versatility in his solo work and with Galactic. This is something else again. Old school jazz quality that you can put on the shelf next to the very best of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Wayne Shorter, ect. It's that good. It really is about musical conversations between Moore and David Torkanowsky, who is great on the keyboards. As good a duo as Davis and Coltrane were in Kind of Blue, and that's the highest praise I have. Buy it; you'll love it. You'll want to hear more of these two together. Hope there is more coming.
