Medeski, Martin & Wood | New MP3, 2008 Tour Dates
Medeski, Martin & Wood are going out on tour soon to support a new experiment:
The Radiolarian Series – named after a type of single-celled organism with dazzlingly intricate exoskeletons – is designed to subvert the age-old music industry cycle of write/record/tour. The trio, consisting of keyboardist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin, and bassist Chris Wood, will convene for brief writing retreats, perform only that new material on tour, record the material immediately after getting off the road, and release it as an album on their own Indirecto label.
The process will be repeated three times, resulting in three albums – the first of which,
Radiolarians I, will be in stores on September 30th.
We’ve got the first mp3 from the project here and I imagine the band will be having some fun on their fall tour. They were having a blast when they played at Slow Food Rocks. I still have a ton of photos to put up from that festival, too. Read on for the dates.
