MEDESKI SCOFIELD MARTIN & WOOD ANNOUNCE WINTER TOUR DATES

Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood have announced a North American tour this December to support their forthcoming studio album, Juice, out September 16 from Indirecto Records. The ten-night run will be preceded by a 14-date tour of Europe in November. Beginning at 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. on December 4, MSMW will play select shows in both the Northern and Southeastern United States, highlighted by a hometown performance at Terminal 5 in NYC on December 11. They’ll conclude the stretch in the Midwest, which includes one night only in Canada at Toronto’s historic Massey Hall.

“We love the unexplainable magic that comes from our collaboration with John Scofield on every level, from the hang to the playing,” says John Medeski. “This is a band with a personality and dynamics all its own that we feel we’ve captured like never before on this latest album. And it will only continue to evolve over these shows this winter.”

Juice—a ten-track effort and the fourth recording between the four musicians in seventeen years of performing together—showcases what Paste Magazine recently described as “the group’s penchant for tight grooves and purposeful rambling.” In addition to six original compositions, MSMW offer a boogaloo romp through legendary jazz saxophonist Eddie Harris‘ “Sham Time,” a dubbed-out deconstruction of Cream‘s “Sunshine Of Your Love,” a playful post-bop reading of The Doors‘ “Light My Fire” and the gorgeous hymn-like album closer, Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin’.”
