MOSTLY OTHER PEOPLE DO THE KILLING

(MOPPA ELLIOTT, PETER EVANS, JON IRABAGON, RON STABINSKY) "ABBREVIATED "MOPDTK" AND BILLED AS A "BEBOP TERRORIST BAND," THEY RIP UP HISTORY AND MAKE IT ANEW WHILE REUSING PROVEN HOOKS." MOSTLY OTHER PEOPLE DO THE KILLING IS A QUARTET FOUNDED ON THE IDEA THAT NOT ONLY IS JAZZ STILL ALIVE AND VIBRANT, BUT IT CAN AND SHOULD BE FUN, ENGAGING AND THOROUGHLY CONTEMPORARY. UNDER THE PLAYFUL PSEUDONYM, "LEONARDO FEATHERWEIGHT," MOPPA ELLIOTT WRITES, "RATHER THAN SETTLING INTO ONE STYLE OR HISTORICAL PERIOD, MOPDTK FUSES THE ENTIRE SPECTRUM OF JAZZ AND THE VARIOUS FORMS OF IMPROVISED MUSIC IT HAS SPAWNED INTO A SINGLE, SEAMLESS MELANGE OF UBER-JASS."
