Respect Sextet at Greenwich House Music School

From NYTimes.com:

The Respect Sextet stamps ambitious music with a smart-alecky affect, ranging broadly from the antic to the deadpan. Formed not quite a decade ago at the Eastman School of Music, it subscribes to the avant-garde humorist urge that has sustained the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the ICP Orchestra (of Amsterdam) and the Microscopic Septet (of New York). The jazz tradition, as a construct, interests the band. But so do the slippery aspects of electronic and new music, which explained its presence at the Greenwich House Music School on Thursday night, kicking off the 25th season of the North River Music series.
