Medeski, Martin & Wood are gearing up for their epic 6-night run at NYC’s The Blue Note from December 11th-16th, in which they will be playing two separate shows each night with some very special guests. Here is the 411:
MEDESKI MARTIN & WOOD
+ special guests NELS CLINE, MARC RIBOT & BILL EVANS
Medeski Martin & Wood appear at The Blue Note in New York City this December for a six show residency. Performing December 11-16, the trio will play two sets each night (8:00 & 10:30PM), while welcoming a number of special guests to the stage over the course of the run, including guitarists Nels Cline (Dec. 12) and Marc Ribot (Dec. 13) and saxophonist Bill Evans (Dec. 14). Additional guests will be announced shortly.
The Blue Note shows are part of Medeski Martin & Wood’s ongoing Fall/Winter tour in support of their latest release, Free Magic. The recording dips into MMW’s archives to present a collection of recordings documenting their first-ever acoustic tour in 2007. The set, stretching out over five expansive tracks, captures the three intrepid improvisers—keyboardist John Medeski, bassist Chris Wood and drummer Billy Martin—exploring the telepathic hookup and deep groove sensibility that has defined MMW since its inception in 1991.
Over the course of 21 years, Medeski Martin & Wood have forged an indelible chemistry on the bandstand that’s fueled countless concerts around the world, as well as, 18 cutting-edge albums. This latest addition to their discography is no exception.
