Keyboard/organ wizard John Medeski, Galactic drummer Stanton Moore, and eclectic saxophonist Skerik will reprise their recently-devised jazz trio project for an improvisational clinic at New Orleans, LA’s The Maison on Saturday, October 9th, 2021 at 2:00 a.m. (technically early-morning 10/10). The performance will also feature a special appearance by enigmatic bassist MonoNeon [get your tickets here].
The intrepid explorations of this heavy-hitting crew are a perfect fit for late in the night on the first Saturday of Jazz Fest. While the members of the core band have played together many times through the years, Medeski, Moore, and Skerik have only previously performed one official show as a trio.
That show, which took place earlier this year in Miami, featured a number of special guests over the course of two-plus hours of scintillating, off-the-cuff sonic journeys. In New Orleans, they’ll add a new ingredient to the potent jazz brew with MonoNeon, the colorful Ghost-Note bassist who has been championed by everyone from Prince to Eddie Murphy.
There’s no telling what magic will arise when these four masters of their respective crafts converge on the Frenchmen St. club late in the night on Saturday, October 9th. Head on down to The Maison to find out.
In the meantime, you can listen to a full audio recording of the trio’s first and only show below to get a taste of the fireworks to come.
