Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood to release new album; playing Union Transfer on 12/5
Jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood will be joined by long-time collaborator and guitarist John Scofield for a special show at Union Transfer on December 5th. The four-piece will be releasing its third studio effort Juice this September. From the band:
With four multi-faceted musicians participating as equals, anything and everything is possible…. To give shape to what eventually became Juice, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood sought common ground and inspiration in the intersection of improvisation and rhythms from the Afro-Latin Diaspora. More specifically, the blueprint was found in a compilation of these sounds put together by drummer Billy Martin and shared among the ensemble.
