Stanton Moore Shares Track from Allen Toussaint Tribute Album

On July 21, Stanton Moore will release his new tribute album, With You in Mind: The Songs of Allen Toussaint, and the Galactic drummer has shared one of the tracks today via JamBase.

“All These Things” was originally sung by a pre-Meters Art Neville and here features Moore teamed up with keyboardist David Torkanowsky and bassist James Singleton, along with guest vocalist Jolynda Kiki Chapman.

Moore says that Chapman was recommended to him by Torkanowsky, and the drummer brought her on before even hearing her sing, ultimately finding that it was the right choice: “When she started singing, the hair on my arms and the back of my neck literally started standing up,” Moore tells JamBase. “I realized in a split-second what an amazing talent she is. I took the rough mix home that night, opened a bottle of wine and played it for my girlfriend… she looked at me and burst into tears. I think that about says it all.”

Listen to “All These Things” below via JamBase.
