Five Firsts: Jim Ketterer of Tern Rounders/the Arch Stanton Quartet

Monday, December 28th, 2009

NAME: Jim Ketterer
BAND AFFILIATION: Tern Rounders and the Arch Stanton Quartet

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “Some People Can Do What They Like,” by Robert Palmer. I was in a record store with my father, and I saw the album cover – with Robert Palmer and a woman playing strip poker as a taxi waits for them. That was enough to pique my 13-year-old’s interest, and I bought the album. It turned out to be filled with great grooves laid down by the amazing drummer Jeff Porcaro. I still have it. It was a lesson for me that sometimes you can judge an album by its cover.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … In the 70’s my friend and I spent the day attending the jazz festival at SPAC. We saw some of the giants in jazz history just before it was too late, including Sonny Payne playing drums with Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and the Tashiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band. We were in jazz dork heaven.

There’s a new Nippertown jazz combo on the scene, and you can find out what they’re all about when the Arch Stanton Quartet blows into the spotlight at the Midtown Tap & Tea Room in Albany on Saturday (November 14).

And, no, there’s no one in the band named Arch Stanton.

The band features trumpeter Terry Gordon, guitarist Roger Noyes, bassist Chris Macchia and drummer Jim Ketterer.

So who is Arch Stanton, anyway?
