We Are MTO

NPR's All Things Considered described Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra like this: 'MTO slides between the old and the new, taking musical cues from talented but little-known jazz bands from the 1920s and '30s that worked the juke joints and ballrooms of the Cotton Belt and the Midwest.' Indeed Bernstein and company embrace vintage sounds and tweak them through their very own post-modern filter. Classics like 'Viper Song' and 'Its Tight Jim' are reinvented to speak in the 21st century, without sacrificing any big band swing authenticity. More contemporary fair like The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love' are treated as if they straight from Count Basie's repertoire. With a line-up featuring Steven Bernstein, Peter Apfelbaum, Clark Gayton, Eric Lawrence, Doug Wieselman, Charles Burnham, Matt Munisteri, Doug Wamble, Ben Allison and Ben Perowsky, expect WE ARE MTO to be among this year's best jazz records.
