Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra rings in the new year at Tonic in New York. The MTO re-imagines 1920s Midwestern-style territory charts and giddily wails into 2007. Their roots are in the movie Kansas City, directed by the late Robert Altman, for whom Bernstein was a consultant. A recent profile of Bernstein on Morning Edition sums it up: "There's magic in mixing the strange and the familiar." Co-produced by NPR and WBGO for Toast of the Nation.
