Guitarist John Scofield gathered a few days ago with keyboardist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin and bassist Jesse Murphy to record a Woodstock Sessions set in Saugerties, New York. The quartet’s “Bandemic” performance will be streamed via Facebook tonight, Friday, March 20 starting at 6 p.m. ET.

Scofield’s relationship with Medeski and Martin dates back to 1998, when the guitarist used Medeski Martin & Wood as his backing band for the A Go Go studio album. Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood have since put out additional releases and perform together from time to time. Bassist Jesse Murphy is a member of Brazilian Girls and is a longtime Scofield collaborator.

“During this difficult and confusing time while live experiences are on hold, Woodstock Sessions, John Medeski, John Scofield, Billy Martin, and Jesse Murphy are honored to give you this music,” reads a note from the musicians and Woodstock Sessions.
