NEW MUSIC NOW DOUBLE BILL

MARC RIBOT and

Mostly Other People Do the Killing


During the past 25 years, guitarist and composer Marc Ribot has released 19 albums under his own name, drawing influence from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler to the Cuban compositions of Arsenio Rodríguez. Rolling Stone notes, “Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985’s Rain Dogs, and since then he’s become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers. He’s written songs for such talents as Elton John and Leon Russell; Medeski Martin & Wood; Marianne Faithful; Madeline Peyroux; Nora Jones; Jolie Holland; and The Black Keys among others, and works regularly with Grammy® award–winning producer T Bone Burnett and composer John Zorn. In his ICA appearance, “Ribot sits down with his guitar and simultaneously confounds you with technique, beauty, and surprise” (PopMatters Picks: The Best Music of 2010).

Formed in 2003, Mostly Other People Do the Killing is a New York City–based jazz quartet featuring highly acclaimed musicians Peter Evans on trumpet, Jon Irabagon on sax, Moppa Elliott on bass, and Kevin Shea on drums. A feverish set morphs from free improvisation to deconstructed standards to original compositions, paying homage to such jazz legends as Ornette Coleman and Charles Mingus, while offering a highly persuasive account of their vision of a revolutionary jazz future.
