Mostly Other People Do The Killing: Shamokin!!! (Hot Cup Records)
Label: Hot Cup Records    
Released in: USA    


"Mostly Other People Do the Killing, or MOPDTK, is a quartet with the rare ability to think, act, create, and destroy as one consciousness. Rather than settling into one style or historical period, MOPDTK fuses the entire spectrum of Jazz and the various forms of improvised music it has spawned into a single, seamless melange of Uber-Jass. Their years of training at Oberlin, Juilliard, Berklee, Mannes, and the Manhattan School of Music behind them, the members of the quartet represent the end products of Jazz education: over-trained musicians influenced by the digital age of instant access. On their second album,

Shamokin!!!

, bandleader Moppa Elliott has penned nine compositions which highlight the playing of the individual members of the ensemble and the awesome power of the collective."-Hot Cup Records
