John Medeski and Lee Shaw: Together Again-Live at The Egg
John Medeski studied with Florida-based pianist Lee Shaw in the late ‘70s. Shaw has since relocated to Albany, NY and, in 2009, Medeski and Shaw reunited for a performance at Albany’s The Egg with bassist Rich Syracuse and drummer Jeff “Siege” Siegel. The show was recorded and is now available on Arc Records as Together Again—Live at The Egg.
This Friday Medeski, Law, Siegel and Syracuse will celebrate the album’s release just outside Albany at Saratoga Springs, NY’s Skidmore College. The performance will take place at the college’s new Zankel Music Center at 8 PM. The musicians will also host a workshop at Zankel at 2 PM. Medeski, Trevor Dunn and MMW drummer Billy Martin will perform at New York’s Lincoln Center tonight as part of John Zorn’s Masada Marathon.
