To make CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS, the members of GALACTIC (Ben Ellman, harps and horns; Robert Mercurio, bass; Stanton Moore, drums and percussion; Jeff Raines, guitar; Rich Vogel, keyboards) draw on the skills, stamina, and funk they deploy in the all-night party of their annual Lundi Gras show that goes till sunrise and leads sleeplessly into Mardi Gras day.

"I didn't have a master plan but I knew that I was gonna make some wholesale changes at the end of making Life In Slow Motion," the singer-songwriter says of his 2005, #1 (seventh) studio album.
