Medeski, Martin & Wood


If you're in for killer harmonious instruments, Medeski, Martin & Wood is the name you're looking for. I always go for vocals but this jazzfunksoul brothers does perfect without it. They have a new record, 'Radiolarians 1'- the first of a three part series of new recordings and I was lucky to be given a copy. Here's a few tracks for you to listen to this amazing ensemble.+/-

Medeski, Martin & Wood

Medeski Martin & Wood, or MMW, is a jazz trio originally formed in 1991, consisting of John Medeski on keyboards, Billy Martin on drums and percussion, and Chris Wood on double bass and bass guitar.

Medeski Martin & Wood was initially a straightforward acoustic jazz trio, but Medeski quickly added a Hammond organ when the difficulties of touring with a piano became apparent. This more soul jazz oriented direction led to the incorporation of other musical genres, including funk, hip hop, trip hop and free jazz. Medeski has also utilized a number of different keyboard instruments, such as a mellotron, a melodica, and a clavinet, among others.
