3 new Medeski, Martin & Wood albums in 2008!
Medeski Martin & Wood are planning 3 tours, plus 3 albums in 2008. Each tour and subsequent album will consist of all NEW MUSIC. The plan: Write > Tour > Record > Repeat. Bucking the traditional process of recording an album, THEN touring after its release. The band feels this new approach for 2008 will lend itself to their way of performing and developing music. On Feb. 14, MMW will get together for 5 days to write new material for their Northeast tour, Feb. 19 - 29. Directly following the tour they will head into the studio to record the music developed on the road. Each body of new material will be unique to each tour (if you see it in New York, you won't see it in Los Angeles). Some of the material may make it into the band's festival sets, but the bulk of it will only be performed during the specified tour period. Please come celebrate. Watch the music evolve, and be part of something different!
Information coming on how to obtain all 3 recordings in a signed, limited edition, eco package.
