Medeski Martin and Wood

Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 03 February 2014

A second chance to hear avant-funk trio Medeski Martin & Wood, in a standout performance from last year's London Jazz Festival.

Hailed as one of the greatest groove bands on the planet, this concert at Ronnie Scott's offers a rare opportunity to witness the group renowned for its Hammond-led, riff-based stylings open out into more extended, exploratory improvisations than are normally heard on their studio recordings.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Peggy Sutton.
