Galactic / Buckethead


New Orleans-based funksters Galactic may be on the cusp of picking up a whole new audience with the release of "Ruckus," the band's fourth studio album and first to seriously delve into electronica (big-shot producer Dan the Automator manned the dials). Like Medeski, Martin and Wood or Maceo Parker, Galactic's sound is defined by ass-burning grooves, veteran musicianship and a devotion to pushing the boundaries by incorporating elements of hip-hop, acid jazz and fusion. Drummer Stanton Moore is recognized as one the top stickmen in the game, having also played with jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter and saxophonist Karl Denson.
