John Scofield Recording with MMW
John Scofield has entered the studio with Medeski Martin & Wood. Earlier today MMW posted a photo of themselves in the studio with Sco on Facebook. A message posted along with the photo says, “Happy New Year Folks! We’ve been a little quiet on Facebook because we’ve been in the studio, working hard!” As previously reported, MMW also recently recorded a series of tracks with Wilco guitarist Nels Cline in the studio. It is not known if the sessions will be released as part of a guitar-heavy MMW album or two separate projects. They will also tour Europe with Cline this spring.
MMW already has three albums with the guitarist under their belts. The trio backed Scofield on the 1998 album A Go Go, collaborated on 2006’s Out Louder and released the 2011 live set In Case the World Changes Its Mind. Scofield spent much of 2013 focusing on his groove-project Uberjam.
