May-24-17 08:00 PM STANTON MOORE Born and raised in New Orleans, Stanton Moore is a dedicated drummer and performer especially connected to the city, its culture and collaborative spirit. Driven and inspired by the thriving music scene of his hometown which includes such greats as Professor Longhair, Doctor John and The Meters, Moore's name is now mentioned amongst these Big Easy mainstays.



In the early '90s, Moore helped found the New Orleans-based essential funk band Galactic. Their first album, 1996's widely acclaimed Coolin' Off, led to an intense tour schedule of nearly 200 gigs a year for the next ten years. Building on their fan base by adding an esteemed list of all-star collaborations to the six albums that followed, Galactic continues to amass a worldwide audience via recording and touring globally.

Moore launched his solo career in 1998 aided by eight-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter and saxophonist Skerik (Les Claypool, John Scofield, Roger Waters). The group recorded All Kooked Out! featuring a handful of local New Orleans musicians as well.

Showing his outstanding versatility, Moore has appeared on Heavy Metal Grammy nominees Corrosion of Conformity's In the Arms of God, Irma Thomas' After the Rain (winning a grammy in the process), Robert Walter's Super Heavy Organ, Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) and Boots Riley's (the Coup) Street Sweeper Social Club, Will Bernard's Blue Plate Special, Diane Birch's Bible Belt, Alec Ounsworth's (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) Mo Beauty and Joss Stone's Colour Me Free!. He continues to play dates globally with an ever-evolving cast of musicians including John Scofield; Karl Denson; George Porter, Jr., and Leo Nocentelli (of the Meters); Charlie Hunter; Warren Haynes; John Medeski and Chris Wood (of Medeski, Martin and Wood); Donald Harrison Jr.; Dr. Lonnie Smith, Dr. John, Tab Benoit, Robert Walter; the New Orleans Klezmer All-Stars and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to name a few.

With a bachelor's degree in music and business from Loyola University, Moore stays involved in education by constantly giving clinics and teaching master classes and private lessons all over the world. He has been a contributing writer for Drum!, Modern Drummer, and DownBeat magazines. To date Moore has been featured on the covers of twelve drum publications worldwide. In 2005, he launched a signature line of cymbals with Bosphorus Cymbals and a signature drumstick with the Vic Firth stick company. In 2009, Moore developed his own drum company to introduce his signature titanium snare drum that he designed in conjunction with Ronn Dunnett. In 2010, Moore collaborated with Gretsch Drums to design and launch his new 4.5"x14" signature wood snare drum. In 2011, Moore and LP introduced the new signature pandeiro which was created to be used as an accessory piece for the drumset.

May-25-17 08:00 PM LARRY HARLOW & THE LATIN LEGENDS Larry Harlow is a true living legend of Afro-Cuban music. Born in Brooklyn, New York, his early influences were his father Buddy, a professional bass player, and his mother Rose, an opera singer. A graduate of the prestigious NY High School of Music and Art, he excelled on oboe, flute, bass and the instrument that he is most famous for, the piano. Although jazz and the stylings of Art Tatum were his first love, his growing exposure as a teenager to the music and culture of the New York Latino community fascinated him. This led to a trip to Cuba in 1957 where he began a two year intense study of Afro-Cuban music in all of its manifestations; from West African based liturgical repertoire to popular dance styles. Upon his return to New York he quickly made a name for himself as a top bandleader and was quickly signed by the new Fania Record Company, the most important label in the history of Latin music. "El Judio Maravilloso", as he is affectionately called by his colleagues, completely revolutionized what is known today SALSA, developing the explosive trumpet / trombone sound of the contemporary Latino bands of the time.

Harlow studied audio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research in NYC in the early 1970's and became the leading Latin record producer in the world. For Fania Records alone he produced more than 250 albums for various artists and over 50 albums as a leader, including the Grammy nominated masterpiece, "La Raza Latina, a Salsa Suite" in 1978 which was the first serious treatment of the genre; tracing the music's diaspora and evolution from West Africa to Southern Spain, through the Caribbean and eventually New York City. The first Latin opera ever written entitled "Hommy" with lyrics penned by Henny Alvarez was performed to standing room only crowds for two shows each at Carnegie Hall and Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He also co-produced, wrote music for and starred in "Our Latin Thing" and "Salsa", two of most the definitive documentaries on Afro-Cuban based music in New York City.



Mr. Harlow, as a Governor of the NY chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), was responsible for making the organization take notice of the contributions of Latin musicians, which helped to establish the first Latin categories in the Grammy Awards and eventually the Latin Grammys as well. He was inducted into the International Latin Music Hall of Fame in 2000 and received a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. Larry holds a BA in Music from Brooklyn College and a Masters Degree in Philosophy from the New School of Social Research in New York City. He still performs regularly with a variety of lineups and formations, most notably the Latin Legends of Fania.

May-26-17 12:30 AM NOAH BECKER'S UNDERTHOUGHT Noah Becker is a promising young saxophonist and composer based in New York. Originally from Philadelphia, he studied in his teen years with Anthony Tidd and Steve Tirpak via the Kimmel Center's Creative Music Program, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. The program fosters some of the best young musicians in the city, and Noah experienced tremendous growth from this critical exposure at a young age. He received numerous regional awards during those years.



After a year-long stint at Northwestern University in Chicago, during which he studied with saxophonist Victor Goines of Jazz At Lincoln Center, Noah transferred to The New School in New York to more aggressively pursue his formal and informal creative education. He has since performed at a number of venues in the city, frequented various jam sessions, recorded with working bands in New York and Philadelphia, and studied with top-level musicians such as Micha*l Attias, Will Vinson, Andy Milne, Ari Hoenig, and Ralph Alessi.

In December 2016, on his 21st birthday, Noah released his first demo, Nascent (available here). The recording features three original compositions, along with a rhythmically sinewy arrangement of All The Things You Are, and presents a strong reflection of his personal language and sound in the making. Nascent chiefly features Noah's working quartet Underthought, comprised of Kieran McAuliffe on guitar, Kweku Sumbry on drums, and Shawn Lovato on bass, all of whom will be performing at Blue Note tonight.

In addition to his responsibilities as a full-time student, Noah works at John Zorn's avant-garde listening space The Stone. He spends lots of time practicing and composing, and has recently begun re-integrating the clarinet into his serious repertoire. He recently performed at the Bern Jazz Festival in Bern, Switzerland, and will travel abroad again this August for Vijay Iyer's prestigious Banff International Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music.
