The quartet Mostly Other People Do The Killing has a deep respect for jazz traditions — and a peculiar way of demonstrating it. The band likes to take song forms and standards, cleave them into bits with exceptional virtuosity (and comic timing), and reconstitute them with Frankenstein-like references to any and every era of jazz. It's presented all in good fun, and with tons of positive energy, as the first act on the Quad Stage.
