After a pair of onstage collaborations between Medeski, Martin & Wood and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline proved inspiring to both sides, they’ve documented their mutual admiration on a new improvisational album, “The Woodstock Sessions.” And now you can see Brooklyn’s powerhouse groove trio along with Nels Cline on guitar live Under the Bridge!
Cline first sat in with Medeski, Martin & Wood in 2012 at the Blue Note in New York. “All of us were surprised at the instant chemistry, so we talked about trying to do more,” keyboardist John Medeski said.
That goal came to fruition the following summer, when the trio closed out the last day of Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, Mass., where Cline joined them again to “solidify the fact that it wasn’t just a fluke,” Medeski said.
It wasn’t, and by August of last year, they had set up to record in front of an audience of 75 ticket-winners at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, N.Y.
“We improvised two sets at the large barn studio Applehead in Woodstock in front of a manageable mob of invited guests, and this yielded a recording of some of our favorite moments, like the retroactively-titled ‘Jade,’” said Cline, who’s also readying the release of a new Nels Cline Singers record, “Macroscope,” which is due April 29.
