Earshot Jazz Festival
ft. Mostly Other People Do The Killing / The Bloodroot
10/13 8 PM Barboza
Jazz of “bustling, ostentatious impiety” from bassist Matthew “Moppa” Elliott, with drummer Kevin Shea and pianist Ron Stabinsky. Elliott says he pits his deep roots in jazz against conflicted feelings about some directions the music has taken to create “music that both blatantly mocks and reveres the jazz tradition.” Opening: The Bloodroot: Chris Icasiano, the innovative drummer from Bad Luck, performs with bassist Kelsey Mines, and Andria Nicodemu, an improvising vibes experimentalist from Cyprus via Boston.
