The Microscopic Septet
Their wit, smarts, varietal swing, and bopping quadruple-sax arrangements made the Micros the most entertainingly pomo of eighties New York jazz outfits. A couple of cool 2006 anthologies cemented their legacy and brought them back for their first gigs together since 1992 and a fine 2008 album, Lobster Leaps In. They're still the finest retro-futurists around, and I'd recommend getting here early because this petite joint will be packed.
