Mostly Other People Do the Killing - Moers 2009

Here's a partial set im MP2, short and small, for those who're not sure... a full two-set concert will be posted later on. MOPDTK are a fabulous band led by bassist Moppa Elliott and featuring the great trumpet player Peter Evans, saxophonist Jon Irabagon, and Kevin Shea on drums. Their music is both modern and reaching back at the tradition at the same time, but tradition in their case means not only hard bop but also music by the likes of Ornette Coleman, Roy Haynes and Roland Kirk, as can be seen from their funny album covers quoting classics.

Thanks to dime seeder fbauer for this set!

Peter Evans, one of the musicians who stands out in the memory from last year’s festival,
returns to Moers with a streetwise quartet headed by the bassist Moppa Elliott.
The group’s album “This is our Moosic” is a tongue in cheek reference to the legendary
Ornette Coleman album from 1960 and is testimony both to their respect for the history of jazz,
but also to their intention to redefine “jazz” in the 21st century.

Thanks. I must have missed this over there (or not noticed what exactly it was). Sounds like it should be interesting.
