The ever-evolving, genre-defying collaboration between Medeski Martin & Wood and John Scofield continues to flourish.
Since first convening almost 17 years ago, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood's kinship both onstage and off has fostered an escalating degree of musical interplay, exquisitely captured on Juice- their third studio album available, via Medeski Martin & Wood's lndirecto imprint. JUICE combines the group's signature grooves with a newfound lyrical melodicism over a program of original compositions and four covers - including a powerful hymn-like version of Bob Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changin' and a dizzying dub deconstruction of Cream's 'Sunshine of Your Love.'
Throughout, JUICE showcases the quartet's dynamic interplay and razor-sharp improvisational acumen. 'Reacting to each other is really what it's about,' says Scofield, 'and that's what makes this music work. We've gotten to the point where we can come together and make something that is identifiable and organic, yet it's growing and changing all the time.'
