    At most jazz jams, to protest the fact that there seems to be a requirement that each and every song includes a simultaneous cadenza involving all members on stage on the final chord, I usually wait until everyone has blown their load and then tag on the end an instrumental "On the highway to hell...."

    It still blows my mind that Kurt's the bass player on the first two Marcy Playground albums. I remembering listening to the first album in high school, way before I ever got into jazz or even had an inkling of what jazz even was. An ironic full circle, of sorts.

    patfarlow: what do you dislike about "Our Secret World" ? I think it's an amazing record! Just curious...

    contremisart: I read he'd played with them when they were first signed, but didn't officially join because he was busy with his own stuff. He's listed on the credits for their second album, Shapeshifter.

    @Dorian Grey Firstly, I have a bias which is, I dont like big bands. Secondly, I feel the album sounds like a harsh, tinny brass band featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel. I like Kurt with trios and quartets because he has more room sonically to expand and contract. I honestly felt all those horns detract, rather than contribute anything pleasant to me.

    If it was Kurt featuring a string quartet, that would be lovely to me.

    A string quartet! That would be really cool! Yeah, I'm not as much a fan of the big band album. There's nothing wrong about the way it was done that I would critique, I just don't care for it for some reason.
