The trio’s amalgam of jazz, funk, “avant-noise” and a million other musical currents is nearly impossible to classify, which is just how they like it. Medeski’s keyboard excursions, Chris Wood’s hard-charging bass lines and Billy Martin’s supple, danceable beats have come to resemble a single organism, moving gracefully between genre-defying compositions and expansive improvisation atop a relentless groove. Medeski Martin & Wood have been on their musical adventure for two decades, but continue to write new music. Martin explains, “Musically, we’re changing all the time,” adding that the band is constantly improvising and surprising even themselves.
