Stanton Moore calls his latest recording, Conversations, both a “return to my roots and a reinvention.” The New Orleans drummer, who by all counts is regarded as one of the great funk musicians of his time, has delivered his first straight-ahead jazz trio album. The collection signifies a return to Moore's roots in that he finally gets the opportunity to record with pianist David Torkanowsky and bassist James Singleton whom he came up playing alongside on the New Orleans' club circuit. It's a reinvention because after years of delivering huge grooves and unrelenting funk at some of the world's most revered rock clubs and festivals, Moore is stepping back to focus on the subtlety of swing and improvisation, while presenting the music at intimate venues like that of his jazz trio's home-base, Snug Harbor.
