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.
