Medeski, Martin and Wood
End of the World Party (just in case)

The trio's latest album is less weird than their last two, Uninvisible and The Dropper (which they named it, I heard, because they thought they'd get dropped from their label when the managers heard it, if that tells you anything).

To my mind this album's more consistently brillant than anything they've done since Shackman, back in 1996. In between they've collaborated with turntablists, horn blowers, and percussion ensembles. This is back to the core trio, and it's better because of it.

Listen to clips here.
