A Black Friday Treat: Bear Creek Shares Medeski, Scofield, Martin and Wood Soundboard From 2011 Festival

We’ll never forget the day in the late ’90s when it was revealed that avant-groovers Medeski, Martin and Wood were heading into the studio with jazz guitar legend John Scofield. This was a collaboration straight out of the dreams of many fans. The resulting album, A Go Go, stands among the best work by both artists. The project was too good to keep to just one album and tour, so thankfully the trio and Sco have teamed up plenty of times since that first album for tours and special shows.

MSMW will play a pair of shows in Colorado next month before making their Jam Cruise debut in January. Soundboard recordings of the group are fairly rare, so we were excited to see that Bear Creek organizers have shared an official recording of MSMW’s set from November 12th, 2011 at Big IV Amphitheatre for our listening pleasure. Listen as the quartet work through tunes from their two albums as well as a gorgeous cover of Lennon/McCartney’s Julia. There’s also sit ins from Roosevelt Collier of The Lee Boys and drummer Johnny Vidacovich. Check it…

Set: A Go Go, Down The Tubes > Hanuman, Little Walter Rides Again, Miles Behind, Julia,  In Case The World Changes Its Mind (w/ Roosevelt Collier), Tootie Ma Was A Big Fine Thing (w/ Johnny Vidacovich), Hottentot
