    Electric Company - Two local jazz luminaries become laptop converts

    "I'm a drummer! I want rhythm!" I'm sitting in my building's laundry room with Huntley Miller and JT Bates (a.k.a. Grid), and Bates is lamenting the occasional randomness of Autechre's drum attack at last year's Woman's Club performance. "We bo...
