"Wide open" is the phrase John Medeski uses to describe his bandmatesí musical sensibilities, the attitude he seeks in himself and the spirit of musical adventure that Medeski Martin & Wood have pursued for two decades. The trioís amalgam of jazz, funk and a million other musical currents and impulses is nearly impossible to classify, which is just how they like it.
The trio is made up of Medeskiís keyboard excursions, Chris Woodís hard-charging bass lines and Billy Martinís supple, danceable beats. They music has come to resemble a single organism, moving gracefully between genre-defying compositions and expansive improvisation atop a relentless groove.
