Jazz masters John Medeski, Stanton Moore, and Skerik reprised their improv trio for a Jazz Fest late-night featuring special guest MonoNeon late Sunday night. The four improvisational titans convened at The Howlin’ Wolf for their second-ever performance to wrap up the first weekend of Jazz Fest.
Medeski, Moore, and Skerik played their first trio show approximately one year ago in Miami. The concert featured over two hours of extemporaneous explorations and included appearances from special guests Oteil Burbridge and Roosevelt Collier. Sunday’s late-night performance, which actually started at 1 a.m. Monday morning, was likewise bolstered by the presence of eccentric bassist MonoNeon, plus a couple other spontaneous sit-ins.
The concert was part of Live For Live Music‘s Fest By Nite series, which offers a host of late-night entertainment options during Jazz Fest and the “daze between” Jazz Fest weekends. Upcoming Fest By Nite events include all-star tributes to Prince, Steely Dan, and New Orleans music legends Dr. John and Art Neville, plus performances by jam supergroups Star Kitchen, Daze Between Band, and Honeypot.
