Guitar Player is proud to partner with FolkYeah! to present the killer combination of Grammy-winner Eric Krasno and drummer Stanton Moore in San Francisco’s Mission District at the glorious Chapel on Good Friday.
The two have combined forces for the Krasno/Moore Project, which just released its killer debut album Book of Queens on Concord Jazz.
It’s an organ trio with keyboardist Eric Finland that puts a fresh spin on classic works by luminary ladies including everyone from Nina Simone and Sharon Jones to Amy Winehouse, Billie Eilish and H.E.R.
He’s primarily mined jazz and jam gems, but his recent solo stuff is more rock oriented. It’s absolutely stellar, and he’s become quite a vocalist.
“Kraz” sings through the strings on the instrumental Book of Queens. The lyrical melodic phrasing on the kickoff cover of Winehouse’s “You Know I'm No Good” is particularly noteworthy, and the solo will knock your socks off.
The longtime hollowbody enthusiast cops a solidbody tone using his brand-new signature D’Angelico Deluxe Eric Krasno Brighton.
Krasno explains: “We spent some time configuring the pickups with Seymour Duncan. They are single-coils in humbucker casings, and they have their own unique sound.
“I used a Princeton Reverb for the recording sessions we did up at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, because I could crank it there, but for the show I’m using a Supro Royale. The output is optimal so tone breaks up at just the right level, and it’s got a great reverb with Dwell and Level controls.
“We focus on the Book of Queens, but Stanton and I also play tunes from our catalogues and talk about our history, so the show becomes kind of a best of our bands plus the new record experience.”
Don’t miss this chance to catch the uplifting sounds of the Krasno/Moore Project in San Francisco on Good Friday at The Chapel.
