Ben Allison - "Roll Credits" (Video)

Bassist Ben Allison has been a force on the music scene, not only because of his musical prowess (most recently exhibited in his outstanding album, The Stars Look Very Different Today) but also in his work as an advocate for musicians. So posting a simple little video of his band performing last year at New York's Joe's Pub has a few more peccadilloes than a mere embed. Read Allison's essay about his YouTube experiment at his website. In the meantime, watch his stellar band play "Roll Credits" after the jump.


@ Joe's Pub, NYC, December 3, 2013
