Mostly Other People Do the Killing

2 hours
First broadcast:
Monday 29 August 2011

Jez Nelson presents New York 'terrorist bebop' quartet Mostly Other People Do The Killing. Voted Downbeat magazine's Rising Star Ensemble in 2009, the group has established a reputation for subversion, deconstructing standards and their own material through deliberately erratic experimentation and a humorous performance style. The band is led by bassist Moppa Elliott and also features trumpeter Peter Evans, saxophonist Jon Irabagon and Kevin Shea on drums, in a performance recorded at The Vortex in London.
Also on the programme, in the month that marks 40 years since the death of Louis Armstrong, Jazz on 3 asks if his music is still relevant to today's trumpeters.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Phil Smith & Russell Finch.
