Is there a reason we've never had a Medeski Martin and Wood thread?

My just-ex-roommate listened to them a lot. I always enjoyed it. I'll probably look into getting or borrowing some now that he's not around. I remember Combustication being particularly good.

seven years pass...

Should I check out any MMW released in the last 10 years? I haven't even listened to the old stuff in that time period, but I see they're still producing. C/D S/D?

This band needs a S&D thread. Where to begin?

It's been way too long since I've listened to them. I remember liking Friday Afternoon in the Universe way better than Shack-man. I also liked It's a Jungle in Here but largely due to "Bemsha Swing" and "Syeeda's Song Flute", which were my first exposure to Monk or Coltrane. At the time, I thought Notes From Underground was sorta boring. I don't feel a need to go back and re-evaluate any of these, except maybe Friday Afternoon.

Saw MMW at GW Lisner during the first tour that they brought the DJ with them. The crowd was really weird because it was pretty evenly split between hippies and people literally wearing black turtlenecks. There was a lot of "shush"-ing going on that night. It was a great show to dance to though.

i remember really liking the production & vibe on 'combustication', and loving the playing on the record they did with john scofield.

the jungle breaks and scratching are so lol '90s, it's great.

So is it wrong for me to love Free Magic? It feels a little bit like a guilty pleasure, especially since I had been listening to a lot of Sun Ra and Anthony Braxton recently.
