Editorial Reviews

Review

When funky ex-Miles Davis guitarist John Scofield recruited Medeski Martin & Wood for his 1997 album, A Go Go, a new dimension opened up. Sco s irresistible lines flow through the trio s array of electronic effects like a sonic braid. --Seattle Times

Product Description

The ever-evolving, genre-defying collaboration between Medeski Martin & Wood and John Scofield continues to flourish. Since first convening almost 17 years ago, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood's kinship both onstage and off has fostered an escalating degree of musical interplay, exquisitely captured on Juice their third studio album available September 16, 2014, via Medeski Martin & Wood's Indirecto imprint.
Juice combines the group's signature grooves with a newfound lyrical melodicism over a program of original compositions and four covers including a powerful hymn-like version of Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' and a dizzying dub deconstruction of Cream's Sunshine of Your Love. Throughout, Juice showcases the quartet's dynamic interplay and razor-sharp improvisational acumen.
Reacting to each other is really what it's about, says Scofield, and that's what makes this music work. We've gotten to the point where we can come together and make something that is identifiable and organic, yet it's growing and changing all the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Freshly Squeezed September 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood's third studio release, "Juice" offers a fresh batch of songs. While "A Go Go" stands as one of the all-time greatest Jazz/Rock projects, "Out Louder" was a long-awaited and much appreciated sequel that let us hear this supergroup stretch out. In this context, "Juice" can be thought of as a progressive extension of "Out Louder." Starting things off, 'Sham Time' introduces the signature Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood (MSMW) sound that emphasizes the electric guitar and organ. Up next, 'North London' shows John Scofield in top form. As one of the highlights, John Medeski does fantastic piano work on 'Louis the Shoplifter.' This Billy Martin song perfects the art of the groove. Moving along, 'Juicy Lucy' sounds suspciously similar to 'Louie Louie.' While it's schmaltzy, the tongue-in-cheek tune is also tons of fun. It is contrasted by the reflective, 'I Know You.' 'Helium' is a Chris Wood song with all sorts of interesting changes and sonic textures. The most surprising song on the album may be the Doors' 'Light My Fire.' This is no straight-up rendition; the band does a great job making the song their own. The next classic rock gem is Cream's 'Sunshine Of Your Love.' MSMW completely deconstruct this song as Jack Bruce's iconic bass riff is nowhere to be found. Instead of being predictable, the band turns the reggae vibe on and jams an eleven minute dub version. Adding sonic richness, MSMW invited congero Pedrito Martinez on for a couple of songs. Most of the time, however, it is Billy Martin who adds interesting textures by playing exotic instruments like the talking drum and cuíca. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice September 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have not been a fan of Scofield's work with the mighty MMW... Until now. His phrasing is beautiful. Wonderful note selection throughout. The classic rock interpretations are fun. This has a smooth, relaxed vibe in comparison to the jagged, experimental feel of the last effort with Nils Kline.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice but lacks a sense of urgency September 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Eh, I agree with the allmusic review on this one; nice but lacks a sense of urgency, a bit too self-contented. And what were they thinking doing Louie Louie (Juicy Lucy), Light My Fire? It's funny how far this is from their album with Cline. Scofield just sounds too comfortable on this one for my taste.

Their take on Sunshine Of Your Love is great though, kind of reminds me of how they take Hey Joe or Everyday People and use them as a starting point for going somewhere very different. Another standout is Helium.

On the whole though, I found this album less exciting than their previous studio recording, Out Louder.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Juice September 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD
For the third installment of this power quartet's studio efforts, MSMW breathes new life into familiar territory for fans of the inimitable sound that defines this group. Combining the soaring guitar riffs of John Scofield, smoking keyboard wizardry of John Medeski, funky bass grooves of Chris Wood, and percussive genius of Billy Martin, Juice delivers from start to finish. The warm, vintage tones of the B-3 organ, jazzy piano melodies, exceptional guitar improvisation, and solid rhythms throughout will make this album regular listening for me. It seems to pick up where the group left off from their previous release, Out Louder, while maintaining the cohesive, soulful vibe of 1998's debut, A Go Go. A fresh and fun reflection of the band's evolution over the years, Juice will get you dancing in your living room or make your next road trip all the more enjoyable.
