Mostly Other People Do the Killing

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," 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." Their "music" is a dense jungle of musical signifiers held together by the adhesive qualities inherent to the Jazz Tradition. Elliott's unique and original method of composition uses instantly recognizable gestures from the American aural lexicon to set up expectations in the ears of the listener
