The Millennial Territory Orchestra
Sly Stone may live in a camper in the Crenshaw neighborhood of Los Angeles and may not be familiar with the Stone in Alphabet City, but that’s not stopping Sex Mob frontman Steven Bernstein and the nine-piece Millennial Territory Orchestra from playing some incredibly inspired covers from the 69-year-old singer's body of work. The Family Stone patriarch's benighted existence can't overshadow his totemic status as a soul pioneer, and songs like "Everyday People," "Family Affair," and "M'Lady" are reinvigorated when eminent members of the downtown scene bring the funk.
