> 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&amp;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.''
