Briefly: Medeski, Martin & Wood @ The Fillmore, SF 2/21/10
Last night was the third time I’ve gotten to see Medeski, Martin & Wood since I’ve relocated myself to the Bay Area, and my friends and I left the venue in awe of an unbelievably confident band that seems to get tighter and tighter every day they continue to play together. In the past, I remember I actually thinking that these guys were boring at times and couldn’t get their act together to find a groove, but those past few shows have been nothing but concise and directed. I wasn’t bored for a second last night.
At any rate, the band continues on tour up the West Coast this week, then they go to Japan in April ahead of a sure-to-be-busy summer with dates already booked at Red Rocks (supporting John Butler Trio) and Bonnaroo. I’m really hoping there’s still time to add them to the High Sierra lineup…
