Stephen Gauci / Sandy Ewen / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Live at the Bushwick Series

Read "Live at the Bushwick Series" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There are certain musicians, let's call them axis musicians, who are always at the center of a scene or movement. Dave Rempis, William Parker and Ken Vandermark can consistently be found at the epicenter of a sound or scene. This is also true of saxophonist Stephen Gauci, the coordinator of a music series at the Bushwick ...

Jerry's on Front
jny: Philadelphia, PA
February 16, 2019

Twenty blocks and a world away from the clubs and bars of Philadelphia's city center, the experimental art space of Jerry's on Front is a room one would hardly imagine for music at all. It's a nondescript ...

Mostly Other People Do The Killing: Paint

Read "Paint" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Un po' come succede alle stelle quando “esauriscono il combustibile," quando si espandono e poi si contraggono diventando una caldissima “nana bianca," nel corso dell'ultimo anno i Mostly Other People Do The Killing si sono espansi fino a settetto per poi restringersi all'archetipica forma jazz del trio con pianoforte.
Ma sarà davvero anche qui ...

Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Loafer's Hollow

Read "Loafer's Hollow" reviewed by Luca Canini

Se pensavate che dopo dodici anni e undici dischi nel barile non fosse rimasto più niente da raschiare, se li avevate un po' trascurati di recente perché il gioco è bello fin che dura poco, se vi eravate fatti l'idea che una volta risuonato Kind of Blue nota per nota, in una delle operazioni più assurdamente ...

Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Loafer's Hollow

Read "Loafer's Hollow" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Blowing up Mostly Other People Do the Killing from its core quartet to a septet may seem like an invitation to dance on the musical third rail. The group that has always straddled the broad and fuzzy line between tradition and chaotic improvisation, has nevertheless managed that process with a mixture of sophistication, revelation and unbridled ...

“If mostly other people do the killing I guess that means it's sometimes us," replied bassist Moppa Elliot in response to the inevitable question about the name of his band. Though many consider Mostly Other People ...

Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Mauch Chunk

Read "Mauch Chunk" reviewed by Troy Collins

Any concerns that a personnel change would affect the mercurial disposition of the “terrorist bebop band" known as Mostly Other People Do the Killing have been confirmed as unfounded by Mauch Chunk, the wily ensemble's eighth studio recording for Hot Cup Records. Trumpeter Peter Evans, an original member since the core quartet's founding in 2003, left ...
