From The Corner to the Block is one of my favorite albums of the decade so far. Performed by the jazz/funk/jam combo Galactic along with some of the best names in hip-hop, it’s all sorts of cool.
But any Galactic fan will tell you this: No matter how good the band is on record, you have to see them live.
Only then will you understand how amazing a drummer Stanton Moore truly is. Only then will you realize how tight this band is. Only then will you hear just how bizarre Ben Ellman can make his saxophone sound — and he can make it sound WEIRD.
Catch their post-Jam Cruise show at Revolution on Friday night.
Also, check out a massive bill at Delray’s City Limits, featuring Jupiter One, Fire Zuave, Stonefox, Tongues of the Heartworm, Ex Norwegian and Pretty Faces, coming Friday night.
