Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Disasters Vol. 1

Read "Disasters Vol. 1" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Rest assured, Mostly Other People Do the Killing get the joke and on Disasters Vol.1, the amorphous collective's eleventh disc and this trio's riotous second, you either get the joke too or you don't. It really makes no never-mind to this eclectic bunch because MOPDtK know instinctively that, if you don't throw yourself off balance from ...

Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Disasters Vol. 1

Read "Disasters Vol. 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Mostly Other People Do the Killing has a way of making great music sound accidental. So Disasters Vol. 1 is as suitable a name for this collection as it would be for any of their fourteen albums. In past versions, they have boasted big names such as Jon Irabagon, Peter Evans, and rising talents like guitarist ...

Mostly Other People Do The Killing: Disasters Vol. 1

Read "Disasters Vol. 1" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Moppa Elliott's gonzo-surrealist jazz group, Mostly Other People Do The Killing, returns for a second album in its piano trio format with Elliott on bass, Ron Stabinsky on piano and Kevin Shea on drums. They are up to their usual tricks here, playing slapstick jazz which flits deliriously through all types of styles and sub-genres like ...

The 'Residence' part of the title is quite extreme, as each successive musician is given the keys for a full year's inhabitation, ...

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Matt Mottel & Kevin Shea" reviewed by Martin Longley


Improviser In Residence becomes Improvisers In Residence, for the 50th anniversary of the Moers Festival in Germany. Running since 2008, this has been a year-long in-house situation for invited artists, and usually offered to a single being. In 2021, we have the innovation of a twosome, in Matt Mottel (keyboards) and Kevin Shea (drums), who also ...

Stephen Gauci / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Bulletins From The Frontline

Read "Stephen Gauci / Adam Lane / Kevin Shea: Bulletins From The Frontline" reviewed by John Sharpe


Until the pandemic hit, tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci's trio, with bassist Adam Lane and drummer Kevin Shea, formed the keystone of the Bushwick Improvisers Series organized by the hornman. The band had played every week since the summer of 2017, give or take the occasional substitution, either as a threesome or with the addition of guitarist ...

Stephen Gauci Pandemic Duets

Read "Stephen Gauci Pandemic Duets" reviewed by John Sharpe


When everything shut down in March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, New York City native tenor saxophonist Stephen Gauci initiated what he thought would be a set of five duet recordings in a refusal to be cowed by the lack of performance opportunities. In fact the collection has run to some 19 entries over that ...
