Mostly Other People Do the Killing
Cornelia Street Café, West Village Wednesday January 28 2015
Mostly Other People Do the Killing has been on a tear in recent years, demonstrating anew why it's one of the most appealing jazz ensembles in town. The local quartet—led by bassist Moppa Elliott and featuring pianist Ron Stabinsky, saxist Jon Irabagon and drummer Kevin Shea—has as much fun laying down a funky, whimsical groove as it does exploding form altogether, resulting in performances that feel at once anarchic and oddly wholesome. Last year, the group turned heads with its wildest endeavor yet, Blue—a note-for-note re-creation of Miles Davis's landmark Kind of Blue. Here, it supports a new live disc, Hannover.
