Mostly Other People Do The Killing – Paint (2017)

Mostly Other People Do The Killing – Paint (2017)

After the septet outing ‘Loafer’s Hollow’, Moppa Elliot makes “less is more” the mantra for the trio feature ‘Paint’. Which only goes to show that size really doesn’t matter with Mostly Other People Do The Killing; only gumption does.

Blurring the lines between art and wit for fourteen years running, Mostly Other People Do The Killing are still making absurdity in jazz fun.

Jon Lundbom + Big Five Chord – Jeremiah (2015)

Jon Lundbom + Big Five Chord – Jeremiah (2015)

‘Jeremiah’ is the jazziest Jon Ludbom and Big Five Chord album yet but none of the Big Five Chord edge gets diminished in the process. The adventures continue with the same vigor and ingenuity as before.

Lundbom’s original tune “The Bottle” is a good indicator that there’s no let up from Big Five Chord in Jeremiah from their previous five records.

Jon Lundbom and Big Five Chord – Liverevil (2014)

Jon Lundbom’s Big Five Chord shares a lot of members with Bryan & the Haggards and Mostly Other People Do the Killing, and thus, that wild and wooly DNA is built into the band.

Bryan and the Haggards featuring Dr. Eugene Chadbourne – Merles Just Want To Have Fun (2013)

A two-step shuffle, a slightly exaggerated country croon, and two feisty saxes with occasional late-period Coltrane wails arousing suspicions that these are wack jazz guys playing Merle Haggard, not dedicated country music musicians.

Mostly Other People Do The Killing – Red Hot (2013)

When I got finished listening to Mostly Other People Do The Killing’s new album Red Hot, I thought, “man, this is the best album they’ve ever made.”

Mostly Other People Do The Killing – Slippery Rock (2013)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuxpYZDQLnk&w=420&h=315] I like Mostly Other People Do The Killing (heretofore referred to as MOPDTK) because they’re merry musical marksmen, top drawer jazz musicians who shoot down every style they suggest. But I don’t know how many other people can dig this.

Jon Lundbom and Big Five Chord – No New Tunes (2012)

The daring guitarist/composer Jon Lundbom is back at it again, meting out intense, unpredictable guerrilla jazz with his Big Five Chord quintet. No New Tunes follows up on last year’s Quavers! Quavers! Quavers! Quavers!
