Medeski Martin and Wood Announce New Album – Free Magic Set For September 25th Release

HT faves Medeski, Martin and Wood will release a new album entitled Free Magic on September 25th via the band’s Indirecto Records label. Free Magic will feature tracks recorded during the trio’s first-ever acoustic tour in 2007. The album contains five tracks in total with Where’s Sly from 1993’s It’s A Jungle In Here and Doppler from the band’s previous LP among the tunes appearing on Free Magic.

“This stuff brings it back to when we used to hang out in this rented shack in Hawaii and make music together,” says Martin of the music on Free Magic. “It was really just a little plywood cabin in the jungle with a tin roof. John had a prepared piano there that sounded like a gamelan instrument and I had these funky drums that had mold growing on them, or I might play the side of the shack or play the railing going up the stairs and make it sound like a xylophone. And we’d get into a lot of different stuff there, just having musical conversations in this intimate setting.”

Take a listen to Doppler off Free Magic…

Free Magic track listing:

1. Doppler
