Born in 1999 during midnight sessions at the now–shuttered Lower East Side music hub Tonic, the Millennial Territory Orchestra (MTO) got its name from regional dance bands of the Twenties and Thirties. Along with playing overlooked jazz gems of early jazz, the ensemble mixes in its own music – including tunes by founder and front man Steven Bernstein – with songs by the Beatles, Prince, and Sly & The Family Stone. The MTO played an extended Monday night residency at Jazz Standard in 2003– 2004; for this special JS:10 anniversary run, the band will play nothing but the blues – fast blues and slow blues, sad blues and happy blues – with their very special guest, the great New Orleans pianist Henry Butler.
