World renowned keyboardist, John Medeski, known for his buoyant, organ-centric approach to jazz, is not easily contained within a project or genre. Credited on over 300 works to date, notably as one third of the groundbreaking, genre-defying trio, Medeski Martin & Wood.
Medeski has garnered fans across the musical spectrum. Building upon jazz roots, electronics and rhythmic grooves, he frequently appears in venues unavailable to most jazz artists. Medeski’s recording credits include John Zorn, Iggy Pop, T Bone Burnett, Ray Lamontagne, Dan The Automator and k.d. Lang. Medeski has produced The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, pedal steel guitar group The Campbell Brothers, and two records from The Wood Brothers.
Marc Ribot’s extensive work has included no wave, free jazz, rock, and Cuban music. He is also known for collaborating with most notably Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Vinicio Capossela and John Zorn.
Ribot has released 25 albums under his own name over a 40-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez. His solo release, Silent Movies (2010) has been described as a “down-in-mouth-near master piece” by the Village Voice, landing on several Best of 2010 lists. His monumental release: Marc Ribot Trio Live at the Village Vanguard (2014), documented Marc’s first headline at the historical venue, and appeared d on Best of 2014 lists such as Downbeat Magazine and NPR’s 50 Favorites.
One of the fastest rising stars of New York City’s legendary jazz scene and a self-described “backpack jazz” artist, he melds avant-garde experimentation with hip-hop production techniques on his latest album, I THINK I’M GOOD, released on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings in February 2020.
Overall has been working at the forefront of jazz for two decades, touring and recording as a sideman drummer with artists as varied as Geri Allen, Steve Coleman, Francis and the Lights, Yoko Ono, Peter Evans, Carmen Lundy, and Gary Bartz. His work as a producer can be heard on albums by Theo Croker (Escape Velocity), Arto Lindsay (Cuidado Madame), and Das Racist (Sit Down, Man). He’s also featured as an emcee and DJ on drummer Terri Lyne Carrington’s latest project, Social Science.
