Medeski, Martin and Wood are LARGE
over the past 20 years (holy sh!t, am i that old?) i've seen these guys at least 17 or 18 times and got to hang out with them on several occasions. IMO the single best jazz/fusion outfit operating today, hands down... and hella nice guys to boot.
i still rank the first of 2 shows of theirs i saw in Barcelona back in 2004 as one of (if not 'THE") best live shows i've ever seen.
they don't tour as much as they used to, but they should be on all of your 'do not miss' lists. hell, i would go see Billy Martin plays drums by himself for that matter. beyond sick.
here's their tune 'Dracula' from their 2011 Halloween show in NYC that The Missus™ & i attended (and had a f***ing blast- Halloween is her Bday)... backed up by ANTIBALAS (all of 'em)... nothing like a 17 piece rip-yer-face-off fusion group.
don't be scared to check out the Hey-Hee-Hi-Ho video next on that playlist either.
