Medeski And Martin Welcome Nels Cline & Special Guests In NYC [Full Audio]

first_imgLast week, Medeski Martin & Wood were gearing up to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a multi-night run in New York, NY. Those best laid plans went awry, however, when Chris Wood underwent emergency surgery on tour with The Wood Brothers, and was in the hospital recovering.While Chris Wood was on the mend, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline stepped up and joined the jazz ensemble for a last-minute, no-holds-barred performance at Le Poisson Rouge. Though not exactly a makeup show – the original performances were rescheduled – the night of Medeski Martin & Cline certainly filled the hearts of those eager for some free-form jazz. With special guest appearances from Julian Lage, Steven Bernstein and Chris Lightcap, this was a night to remember.Fortunately, thanks to taper Matt Moricle, a full recording of the show is available. Listen in to the magical jamming of this insane trio, below.[Photo via tangopresents // Instagram]last_img read more
