Jazz of 2014 featuring Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood

  

2014 has been a great year for jazz, and on this Tuesday’s edition of That Righteous Jive we’ll be listening to some of my favorite trios and quartets. I'll be featuring Medeski Martin & Wood, joined by long time collaborator guitarist John Scofield, and their new album Juice.

"The blueprint for Juice was found in a compilation of African-derived music put together by drummer Billy Martin and shared among the ensemble. “We all love music from Brazil, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and it has always been intertwined with jazz,” explains Medeski. “We got together and started exploring that connection in our own way.”"
