Mostly Other People Do the Killing/Sirius Juju/Unspeakable Garbage
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: Paint

Read "Paint" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Mostly Other People Do The Killing have released their second CD of 2017 and, in keeping with the group's unpredictability, it's a bit of a curve ball. Whereas on previous releases they've ranged in size from a quartet to a septet, this time they've cut themselves down to a simple piano trio. Other than that, it's ...

Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Paint

Read "Paint" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

No sooner had Mostly Other People Do the Killing expanded to a septet with Loafer's Hollow (Hot Cup Records, 2017) than they shrink to their smallest formation to date with the trio release Paint. Founding member, bassist, and composer Moppa Elliott is joined by pianist Ron Stabinsky and drummer Kevin Shea. Trumpeter Peter Evans had departed ...

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 Mark Sullivan

The expanded, septet version of Mostly Other People Do The Killing takes on more pre-bebop era jazz. The previous septet outing Red Hot (Hot Cup, 2013) had focused on jazz and blues recordings of the 1920s -30s; this one adds the music of the swing era to the mix. One of the defining changes in the ...

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 ...

Matt Piet: Of Sound Mind

Read "Of Sound Mind" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Matt Piet is most definitely a thinking man's player, roughly on a par with Ron Stabinsky (see Free For One), but with less notoriety (at least for now). Appearing as a member of the cooperative group Four Letter Words on Blow, he seemed to drive the music with a strong, clear musical personality.

Ron Stabinsky: Free for One

Read "Free for One" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Nome decisamente poco familiare dalle nostre parti quello del pianista di Philadelphia Ron Stabinsky.
Componente da un po' di tempo degli irriverenti Mostly Other People Do the Killing (con i quali lo abbiamo ascoltato dal vivo a Saalfelden nel 2015, una prestazione davvero pazzesca), il musicista ha al suo attivo anche collaborazioni con Peter ...
