Mikel Patrick Avery *PLAY*
Mikel Patrick Avery uses the name of his new group *PLAY* in two senses of the word. In one form, Avery constructs a stage play complete with props, objects, and dialogue. The other form is the child's idea of 'playing' in that Avery and his bandmates utilize the stage as if it were a giant sandbox moving around from object to object, instrument to instrument in a seemingly free manner. The intention of exploring these forms is to obscure the perception of the planned, and the improvised.

Anthony Bruno - various horns
John Sutton - double bass
Mikel Patrick Avery - drums and objects
