NYTimes.com reviews Mostly Other People Do the Killing.
There’s a bustling, ostentatious impiety in the music of Mostly Other People Do the Killing. Led by the bassist Moppa Elliott, it’s a jazz quartet with a diligent grasp of history but an anarchic take on convention. At Zebulon in Brooklyn late on Thursday night, the group riffled through jazz idioms with hammy geniality, like an impressionist flaunting celebrity voices. The unruliness didn’t remotely make it a mess.
