Jazzercise

B-Sides covers, well, the covers repertoire of the Bad Plus and learns about Todd Mosby's newfangled imratgitar.

Since the first prototype of the imratgitar was completed in 1998, Mosby has been refining the design and simultaneously learning how to play the instrument and incorporate it conceptually into his live performances. He's recently settled on a format for his shows that "starts with Indian music, then goes into Indian-jazz fusion, and then into more straight-ahead fusion with electric guitar," he says, and he plans to record a CD of solo music for the imratgitar later this year. In the meantime, Mosby will play the imratgitar during a series of performances every Wednesday night in January at Brandt's Café and Red Carpet Lounge in University City. — Dean C. Minderman
