Medeski, Martin & Wood – Jamaica 2016

Medeski, Martin & Wood began 2016 (their 25th year playing together!) with a handful of shows in Jamaica opening for moe. and Little Feat. Fortunately for us, Little Feat archivist Chris Cafiero was on hand filming the first three nights (of the four), and he even snagged soundboard audio patches each night. Another taper, Steve Wilner also filmed with cameras at both stage right and stage left, as well as front of house. These tapers graciously shared the raw files with me and now we can all enjoy all three nights in multi-camera glory. If you’re an MMW fan, get ready for 3 hours of couch tour! Did I mention that Chris is playing only his Fender Jazz bass for the whole run? Or that they bust out tons of old favorites and get into a large amount of tasty groove-based improvisation? I shouldn’t have to say anything else. But I will say cheers to #MMW25! We’re off to a great start and let’s hope they book a lot more gigs, including something in New Orleans for Jazz Fest!

Nigel Hall Band + Galactic with David Shaw – Indianapolis, IN @ The Vogue Theater 4/4/13

On a recent Thursday night, I headed up to Indianapolis to one of my favorite venues in the region, The Vogue Theater (look for more videos in a few months after I catch Mos Def at this venue!)

Nigel Hall Band

The opening act was the Nigel Hall Band, which featured Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff and Erick “Jesus” Coomes (from Lettuce) and Jermal Watson (from The Dirty Dozen Brass Band). I walked in and got set up a few minutes late, but you can watch most of the set right here.

Galactic never disappoints. This evening they brought vocalist David Shaw (from The Revivalists) and they pulled out several interesting covers. Below you’ll find an edited video with the most interesting covers, and below that you’ll find the complete two hour set in 2 parts. If you’re unfamiliar with David Shaw or The Revivalists just look below for a few videos from Fiyawerx Productions annual Jazz Fest parties.
