Mike Drop 3 – Introducing Morty, with Free Jazz Trumpet and Trombone

Ok. So for those who know me well, you know I like to do certain voices/characters when in the proper mood. One of my faves is Morty, the curmudgeonly old altakaker (you can look it up) who tends to show up at recording sessions and rehearsals (and even the occasional gig) to break the tension that can happen when musicians are really focused and tempers can fray.  Morty has a unique knack for saying just the right thing to lighten the mood, despite himself.

This is the first of what may be many Morty appearances on Mike Drops. I take no responsibility for what he says. If ya got a problem with it, take it up with him.  In this one, Morty has some ideas for how to make Jazz more popular, accompanied by the dulcet sounds of Erik Jekabson and John Gove from the group Happy Hour.  Enjoy!
