Aubrey Plaza, who plays the wonderfully deadpan April Ludgate on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," takes up the saxophone for Cassorla's music for his new jam, "Bona Fide." Performance artist Nick Cregor is also featured.

Cassorla, a/k/a Cheltenham High graduate Ben Cassorla, will release the EP, "Amigos," in February featuring collaborations with members of Blitzen Trapper, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (whom Cassorla has toured with), Dawes and Plaza herself.

Plaza and Cassorla didn't grow up that far apart. Plaza grew up in Wilmington and talked to me about coming into Philly for comedy classes at ComedySportz.
