Mostly Other People Do The Killing. True, here in Portugal.
New York’s Terrorist Be-Bop Uber-Jass Quartet or Mostly Other People Do The Killing (MOPDTK) as they use to be called, will play live in Portugal, this week. One concert in Lisbon and 3 nights in Coimbra.
Not a melting pot, but fantasy salad well dressed with all possibilities of this all-time alive music called Jazz. Bebop combined with free improvisation, served by bassist Moppa Elliott, featuring Peter Evans (trumpet), Jon Irabagon (tenor saxophone) and Kevin Shea (drums).
“I like my jazz with some dirt on it, sometimes a lot of dirt”. Quoting Moppa Elliott to assume that it’s our turn, now. We only have to clean our own ears using this elixir of virtuosity, irony and free creativity.
A single sentence to define MOPDTK: “another kick in the nuts to jazz history”.
The future is now. And “this is our Moosic”.
