MMW Combustication

Medeski Martin & Wood Combustication


Medeski Martin & Wood


A deeper groove, plus turntables and powerful experimentation guide MMW through their first Blue Note Release. The hard hitting Sugar Craft featuring DJ Logic is exciting, edgy, and danceable. Nocturne seems to float through a dark, and strangely comfortable dreamscape. Latin Shuffle features one of the greatest recorded piano solos by John Medeski. Rounding out the album and adding an insightful voice is Poet Steve Cannon on Whatever Happened to Gus.
