MMW to Record Four Records in 2008
On the heels of their recent childrens album Lets Go Everywhere, Medeski, Martin & Wood are already gearing up to record another four records in 2008. Each album will have a different seasonal theme and group plans to develop these new compositions on the road. Each season we are going to rehearse some ideas, tour and develop the music, and then make a record, drummer Billy Martin says in a recent site interview. We are going to spend about a week rehearsing and writing the music before the tour, really try to develop the music on tour, and then go into the studio for 2-3 days and just nail it. It wont be like our usual improvising in the studio. It is more like what we did with Shack-Man. But I guess on all of out records, we have a few songs that we develop before we record them.’ While MMW is off the road their February 21 appearance at South Burlington, VTs Higher Ground, Martin will perform with Marco Benevento at New Yorks Sullivan Hall this evening.
