Gig spam for other people (posted from envy) - New York

For you New Yorkers, at the Jazz Standard this week is a whole lot of 
Nels Cline, doing plenty of looping I'm sure, and other loopy folks, as 
a mini-festival for the Cryptogramophone label. Just got their email and 
thought I'd pass it on.

In addition to a whole lot of Nels, Stomu Takeishi is the very 
experimentally-minded (and loopy) bass player from Cuong Vu's trio, he's 
playing with Myra Melford (great keyboardist, especially harmonium) on 
Saturday. Scott Amendola integrates lots of loops and electronics into 
his drumkit (he's nearly my favorite living drummer) and he's onstage 
nearly every night. Finally, Nels' twin brother Alex is an amazing 
percussionist, and they're doing a duo the first evening.
