John Scofield Set to Join Medeski Martin & Wood Again
Back in January 2013, before boarding Jam Cruise 11 for their last appearance as a quartet, the four musicians spoke with JamBase about the possibility of future collaborations.
Here’s what Scofield had to say then: “We’ve talked about MSMW doing more in 2014, whether that’s touring or recording or both, we haven’t discussed that yet. I have a new CD called Uberjam Deux that I just made. It’s [the next step of] my Uberjam project that’s coming out.”
While there is no official word on a new MSMW studio album, it certainly seems like there is one in the works as the band posted a photo from the studio back on January 7 that included Scofield with the caption, “Happy New Year Folks! We’ve been a little quiet on Facebook because we’ve been in the studio, working hard!” Scofield and keyboardist John Medeski will also cross paths as members of Phil Lesh & Friends during a three-night run at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas in April.
