Stanton Moore has been one of Galactic's primary members for years, but here on his second solo effort the drummer goes out on his own with groove heavies such as bassist Chris Wood and saxophonists Karl Denson and Skerik. The four roar through a program of bouncing originals, mostly co-composed with the players, that owe just as deep a debt to the Meters as Grant Green. Steering this funk bus from the drum chair, Moore keeps things moving with a loose-limbed style that sounds casual but is consistently on the mark. The players skew the funk-jazz formulae plenty, with Skerik in particular kicking up a racket at times. In comparison, Denson seems to be in a verbosely bop mood that works nicely as counterpoint. Bringing the proceedings down to a gentle shuffle, "Amy's Lament" is a slow military march that sounds like Moore took it from a funeral-parade songbook. Overall, however, Flyin' the Koop is an upbeat affair that delivers everything you'd hoped for from this crew, and more. --Tad Hendrickson

This is simply a wonderful album, and I can't imagine any fan of jazz/funk/fusion not liking it. Another reviewer commented on how much his 2-year daughter likes this album, and I'm not surprised. The melodies are fantastic, but are often quite simple and instantly enjoyable. I've played this album for a few friends who don't listen to this type of music, and they've all liked it. Some people might think it's not flattering to describe the melodies as simple, but in many ways Stanton Moore's compositions remind me of Miles Davis during the middle of his career. There is an outstanding sense of mood and melody, and the various instruments all add layers of texture without ever getting in the way of each other. And as other reviewers have mentioned, all of the band members are excellent and the recording quality is top notch.

I like Galactic, but I don't really listen to it much - their studio albums are a little understated (even Live at Tipitina's doesn't sound this good). But this one takes that jazzy funk and kicks it up a notch. It reminds me of Charlie Parker-type jazz; it sounds like a carefree jam session. The kind of music that just makes me smile. The production is great - the bass drum and stand-up bass reverberate so well I dropped my jaw when I first listened to it on my headphones. Absa-smurf-ly beautiful.

Stanton Moore¡¦s Flyin the Koop is a very New Orleans jazz influenced piece with a great deal of classic funk mixed in. Well known drummer Stanton Moore creates a very attracting and groovy sound that will lead listener¡¦s heads to bob. Moreover, Flyin the Koop has stellar tracks such as "Tang the Hump," "Fallin off the Floor," and "Bottoms Up." In "Tang the Hump," intros with mezzo forte funk feel on the drums complimented with the bass line played with a bow. Then it¡¦s an all out jam session. With these groove oriented jazz tunes, Flyin the Koop will definitely be a hit album, especially with drummers.

There's not much to say here, except that the album's lineup speaks for itself. Fans of Galactic, MMW, Karl Denson, ect. will be very happy with it. It lives up to its potential and then some. And if you are new to this music type and are looking for a place to start this works for that, too. With assorted styles it stays interesting throughout and always maintains a hard edge. Very tight. Tons of fun!

I mentioned previously that my 2 year old daughter loved this album. Well, days after I wrote that review, she shocked my wife by walking into the living room, taking a CD out of the player, picking out this CD, putting it in and asking my wife to 'play it.'
She had NEVER done this before.
It caused me to listen to the work again... and you know what? It's even better than I thought. (I'm only holding off on 5 stars due to fear of grade inflation... I mean, where would I put Sonny Rollins then?)

There are a bunch of cats out there taking jazz, fusing it with funk and bringing it to new levels. MMW started it out, but now so many artists followed their path, now it's a new genre. Jam Band-Jazz-Funk

Stanton Moore is the drummer for the funk group Galactic, and on this occasion, he took several great musicians, got them together, and jammed. The result.....? An endless oppurtunity and never ending ideas of beauty and obscurity.

Chris Wood of MMW is in good company. I think he is one of the best bassists on the scene today. Especially, his up-right bass playing. It's totaly new and unlike most people playing today.

Stanton Moore is an important cat. He can smoke the drumset and his music is going places! Count me in as a fan..
