For nearly 20 years, Medeski Martin & Wood (MMW) have been leaders of the modern improv jazz scene, bringing this often marginalized music to the jam band masses. In recent years the incredibly talented members have branched out into solo and side projects.
One of these projects, Wicked Knee, will be coming to Sullivan Hall on May 11th. The band features MMW drummer Billy Martin, alongside Steven Bernstein (Sex Mob, Spanish Fly) on trumpet, Curtis Fowlkes (The Jazz Passengers) on trombone , and Marcus Rojas (Spanish Fly) on tuba creating, “RagTimeFunk joints with inappropriate avant-garde interludes to keep everything out of focus.”
Opening for the night will be “Philly’s Secret Weapon” Grimace Federation. Grimace is quickly following in MMW’s footsteps, bringing improvisational electronic jazz to new audiences.
