Hey, 

Wait a minute - I never said I could fit into mine either..

Funny! 

But seriously, you guys really were a big part of the scene back then. Hell,
I even have an autographed Billy Cobham album that came from your station
when I called in to answer a "give-away" question. If I didn't thank you
then, I'm certainly thanking you now for playing Fusion from Saturday
morning till Sunday night (unless there was a game) every weekend. My
gratitude is deep. Thank you. 

Best,

Rick

Rick,

Great to hear from someone who still has a "Creative Source" T-shirt!  (Mine
has shrunk beyond me wearing it anymore!).

Cheers,

Brad

MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory
Orchestra.  The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most original
musical voices, wicked and well-traveled improvisers who tear into and savor
Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City barbecue. The
selection of tunes includes classic '20s fare (Charlie Johnson's ''Boy in
the Boat,'' Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of contemporary pop and
R&B hits (Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed,
Delivered'') that have long been part of Bernstein's repertoire. The
vibrancy of the playing, the wit and sass of the arrangements, uncovers the
genetic code that makes Bennie Moten and Prince funk-soul brothers of the
first order. All this, without once conjuring the snoot of academe or
dreaded notions of ''post-modern jazz.''

The Millennial Territory Orchestra is:  Steven Bernstein (trumpet, slide
trumpet), Ben Allison (bass) Peter Apfelbaum (tenor) Charlie Burnham
(violin) Clark Gayton (trombone), Erik Lawrence (baritone, soprano) Matt
Munisteri (guitar, banjo, vocal), Ben Perowsky (drums) Doug Wieselman
(clarinet, tenor saxophone) and special guest Doug Wamble (guitar, vocal) on
''Signed, Sealed & Delivered''

IN STORES 8/1.

AT RADIO...right...about.....now.  Got it?  Hope so.
