Mostly Other People Do the Killing is a group founded on the idea that jazz should be enormous fun. They de-construct jazz standards and weave the remnants into new compositions that the quartet rips into with zest.
This February the band tours to Pittsburgh to celebrate their new recording “Disasters Vol. 1,” original compositions penned by bassist and bandleader Moppa Elliott exploring a wide variety of natural and man-made disasters that have befallen small towns in his native Pennsylvania. While perhaps a unique concept for an album, Mostly Other People Do the Killing bring their unique, swinging, rollicking sense of musical fun to the proceedings, alternating between the tragedy and comedy of the material.
The band assures this music contains antibodies that fight off existential sadness!
Ron Stabinsky: piano
Moppa Elliott: bass
