Now's the Time: The Mike Dillon Band

Content advisory: Mike Dillon's introduction to a "weird punk rock song" and a "punk rock hip hop" selection is laced with profanity.  Even after the music begins at 1:18, his lyrics contain off-color content.  Dillon's current quartet featuring trombonist Carly Meyers returns to the Brick on Friday, June 28.  The band may not swing, but I contend that these musicians demonstrate the inventive spirit, if not the fundamental framework, of jazz.

I'm not sure J.C. Deagan could've imagined this when he was making Xylophones in the '20's. -Sam
