Editorial Reviews

MTO Plays Sly
Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra

With Special Guests Antony Hegarty, Bernie Worrell, Bill Laswell, Dean Bowman, Martha Wainwright, Sandra St. Victor, Shilpa Ray and Vernon Reid.
New York City's favorite 'little big band' Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra cracks open wide the monumental songbook of Sly & The Family Stone on its third album, MTO Plays SLY. On this freewheeling and jubilant 13-track tribute, MTO propelled by a dynamic cast of special guests treats Sly & The Family Stone with the same (ir)reverence it would Duke Ellington or Count Basie, illuminating the melodic and harmonic sophistication of the iconoclast s body of work by re-imagining the music through the filter of their own 'downtown NYC' aesthetic, while upholding the Day-Glo soul and psychedelic funk that is the backbone for classics like 'M'Lady,' 'Everyday People' and 'Family Affair.'
MTO is Steven Bernstein, Peter Apfelbaum, Doug Wieselman, Erik Lawrence, Curtis Fowlkes, Charlie Burnham, Matt Munisteri, Ben Allison and Ben Perowsky

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Bernstein at his finest! November 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having followed Steven Bernstein's illustrious career, I've never been more impressed than I am with his latest release.
His arrangements, combined with these talented musicians and guest vocalists, capture the soul of Sly and explore the musical possibilities in genre crossing, always with emphasis on the groove. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Downtown jazz band plays funky soul December 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Steve Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra is a New York nonet, featuring a five-piece horn section of brass and reeds, a foundation of guitar, bass, and drums, and drop-ins of violin and banjo. They've made a practice of not practicing, learning tunes and working out arrangements on stage and in the studio, giving their records the vitality of live performance seasoned by the simmered qualities of a road ensemble. Their repertoire mixes jazz-age standards with reworked contemporary pop songs, mating `20s and `30s classics with the works of the Beatles, Prince and Stevie Wonder. For their third album, they've focused on the songs of Sly and the Family Stone, with help from vocalists Sandra St. Victor, Antony Hegarty, Martha Wainwright, Dean Bowman and Shilpa Ray, as well as Bernie Worrell on Hammond, Vernon Reid on guitar and Bill Laswell on bass.

As Greg Tates notes in his liners, Sly and the Family Stone date back to an era when collectives were a common social currency and bands mattered as much (if not more) than individual vocalists. Even among soul groups, however, the Family Stone stood out from the carefully groomed powerhouse acts of Motown. Not only was the membership almost defiantly multiracial, but in sound and style, the group was a combination of its unique ingredients, rather than a corporate-developed vision to which the members were trained. The aesthetic is a natural fit for the MTO, as Bernstein provides a framework within which the individual players express themselves - much as do members of jazz groups, and so to the members of the original Family Stone under Sly's leadership.
