"the mad scientist of dancefloor jazz" by CMJ Magazine, Neill's music
"masterfully blurs the lines between electronic dance music and jazz sounds"
(Billboard). This new set of future dub jazz is the most recent chapter in
Neill's musical evolution which has included the CDs Green Machine
(Astralwerks), Triptycal and Goldbug (Verve) and Automotive (Six Degrees). Neill
has recently created a new version of his unique electro-acoustic instrument,
the mutantrumpet, thanks to a residency at the STEIM studios in Amsterdam.

If you recall, Shawn and John put together an informal video and sound installation called Special Treatment in the Chthonic Clash space back in March in the interim between the Clash closing down and ZuZu's opening up. I really dug what they did then. I'm interested to see what they do at the 'Fish.
