“Someone said today, ‘It sounds like a jam band,’ and that was the most gross comment I’ve ever heard in my life,” Gallo goes on to clarify, lest anyone mistake his current activities for hoary hippy shtick. “A jam is a disorganized version of the most ordinary cliche habits – that’s the furthest thing from what we’re doing.” While he’s quick to distinguish his current project from what he calls the “cabaret” mentality of big-name acts, the man also known as a cinematic lightning rod is out to divine something, perhaps something kindred to the current free-jazz renaissance: “Improv is not a good word [for what we’re doing]. It’s more a gesture of composing and performing at the same time.”
