"Mauch Chunk Is Jim Thorpe" is the first track off bassist-bandleader Moppa Elliot's Mostly Other People Do the Killing's new CD, "Mauch Chunk". "Mauch Chunk" is the eighth studio album and first release by the new quartet lineup, including pianist Ron Stabinsky in addition to saxophonist Jon Irabagon and drummer Kevin Shea. Mauch Chunk contains seven new compositions by bassist/bandleader Moppa Elliott and returns to the hard-bop roots of the ensemble. Deeply rooted in the tradition of the post-bop small ensembles of the 1950s and 60s, "Mauch Chunk" presents a unique approach to jazz in the 21st century.
Mauch Chunk is Jim Thorpe; West Bolivar; Obelisk; Niagra; Herminie; Townville; Mehoopany.
Jon Irabagon: alto saxophone; Ron Stabinsky: piano; Moppa Elliott: Bass; Kevin Shea: drums.
