That's awesome Ed,

Hopefully that will help other Jazz Rocker's as well. I know that my buying
habits back in the 70's were usually based on the personnel. For example: It
was because Duane Allman played on Herbie Mann's Push Push that I discovered
and began to love Jazz in the first place. 

I don't know what the kids base their next purchase on, but I'm sure glad to
know that Mike is out there.

Many thanks,

Rick

The album is going to be reviewed in the Aug. 8 JazzWeek and Mike will be
featured as the cover story in an August issue.

Territory Orchestra

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.
