Medeski, Scofield, Martin and Wood

Friday 8 August 2008 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents another chance to hear one of the programme's most requested sets from US jazz-funk fusion supergroup Medeski Scofield Martin and Wood, recorded at the Barbican in July 2007. The trio consisting of Hammond-organist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood first collaborated with former Miles Davis guitarist John Scofield on the latter's 1998 album, A Go Go.

Considered to have a wide appeal, the quartet's music is rooted in funk and the blues as well as in the jazz improvisation tradition, with the versatile Scofield having in the past collaborated with musicians such as Gary Burton, Steve Swallow, Pat Metheny and Bugge Wesseltoft, as well as DJ logic.

Duration:

1 hour 30 minutes
