Mostly Other People Do the Killing will release its seventh studio album, Blue, Oct. 14 on Hot Cup Records. The album is a note-for-note re-creation of Miles Davis’ classic 1959 recording, Kind of Blue. The group consists of trumpeter Peter Evans, alto saxophonist Jon Irabagon, pianist Ron Stabinsky, composer/bassist Moppa Elliott and drummer Kevin Shea. Elliott and Peter Evans first conceived of the idea for this project in 2002. The liner notes are by the Argentine author, Jorge Luis Borges, who explored similar themes in his writing. A CD release concert will take place Nov. 9 at Cornelia Street Café in New York City.
