    We had a great time at the 92Y Tribeca last Friday night with Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra and special guests Bernie Worrell, Sandra St. Victor and Eric Mingus. So we thought we'd share it with you again!

    It's hard to describe the Millennial Territory Orchestra's postmodern brew of old-time, funk and jump swing, which Bernstein applies with equal zest to Prince and the Mound City Blowers. And of course, they brought a banjo. Don't take my word for it, you're better off hearing it for yourself.

    At the 92Y, the MTO turned its manic attention to the work of Sly Stone, as they have done on their CD release, MTO plays SLY, just out on Potato Family Records.
