MSMW

I was really looking forward to MSMW and they did not disappoint. I was in the photo pit for the first few songs, and instead of taking pictures, caught myself watching in awe of John Scofield
His guitar runs so silky smooth over the tight-as-can-be jazz fusion of MMW. Scofield seemed to keep them all centered and really adds so much to the music. It is no wonder that he keeps coming back and playing with MMW.

With another lead instrument in the mix, John Medeski really thrived (like he needed an excuse). As Chris Wood told me in our interview, he and Billy Martin really did seem to relax and lay back more with the pressure off them. The two of them provided the perfect rhythm section. They kept the crowd going, and added in fills and riffs when necessary to remind everybody that they are not to be forgotten.
At each individual instrument, these guys might just be the best four musicians at this festival. Zack and I had a hard time leaving to go grab good spots for R.E.M., but we could still here them wailing away throughout their set. -A.S.

I’m glad we saw MMSW over Matisyahu. I think Billy Martin might be the best drummer I’ve ever seen, and Scofield can wail with the best of them. I was pracically tripping over Matis (the man who tried to be play with everyone) Yahu, who made making his third guest appearance sitting in with the Disco Biscuits last night. My only regret is we didn’t see Ghostland Observatory, who are getting a lot of buzz in the media tent today. I’m way psyched for Grace Potter and Of Montreal tonight. -Z.T.
