Glide Review - Steve Bernstein - MTO Plays SLY

Hey all,

got a new review up on Glide.

Give it a read right c'here!!!

It is of Steve Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra, MTO Plays SLY.  There are some heavyweight musicians popping up on this disk and the interplay for the most part is a success.  There are unique interpretations of songs, "Stand" being the longest and coolest.

The banjo breaks are a bit odd, and I am guessing inspired by Sly Stone, but I am not really sure how...then again Sly has always been a strange bird so who knows where any inspiration comes from.

Bernstein of Sex Mob success does a bang up job bringing these musicians together, perhaps tackling different tunes would have yielded even great results.  This is one album RtBE would like to hear the outtakes of.

Here is an NPR article with a track, you can buy the whole album here.  Below are also some preview video's of the band in a live setting:
