Editorial Reviews

On November 8, 2011, Indirecto Records releases MSMW LIVE: In Case the World Changes Its Mind, a double-live album featuring guitar guru John Scofield and genre busting improvisational jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood.

Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood first recorded together on Scofield's A Go Go (Verve 1998), a project that united the group on material composed by Scofield and interpreted by all four musicians.

In 2006, MSMW collaborated again on OUT LOUDER (Indirecto Records), a jam-packed release full of irresistible grooves and spontaneous improvisation. OUT LOUDER was a genuine four-way collaboration between Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood. "A Go Go was John's record and we were essentially sidemen, where OUT LOUDER musically comes from all of us," explains Wood. Scofield adds that much of the material was composed when the foursome "would play free stuff, listen back, make a song out of it, and then go back with that idea in mind and play free again."

OUT LOUDER exhibits a raw and edgy sound that is embedded in the foundations of jazz, funk and blues. It is described as "funky, brash and sometimes downright beautiful," by All About Jazz and Down Beat notes "the disc serves as a jamming fun time of dance-friendly excursions, sonically pleasing FX'd textures and the requisite unpredictable swerves and swoops that MMW typically delivers."

Back in about 2000 I started to listen to MMW. There was something about John Medeski's organ playing that just blew my mind. After becoming hooked on MMW, I decided to try and get anything that they were involved in. This included 1998's John Scofield album "A Go Go", which then introduced me to how awesome Scofield is, but thats for another review. This represents the first CD of their collaboration. The second being "Out Louder" which was more of a joint effort than "A Go Go" was. While "Out Louder" was good, I didn't think it was as good as "A Go Go", but it was solid none the less.

As you might expect this CD contains songs from both CDs. What you get are great jams and interplay primarily between Medeski and Scofield. In the mean time, Chris Wood and Billy Martin are just tearing it up as the rock solid rhythm section, but they also get their chance to have some solos on a few songs.

While I have seen both MMW and Scofield separately, I have not seen the two of them together. That being said, here is how I would compare this CD to those that have seen MMW live and may be a bit worried. There are sometimes when MMW jam on the stage where it is almost too avant garde and can be hard to listen to. In other words, it can be like watching a live version of "The Dropper". That is not the case here. Pretty much all of the songs have a solid groove established that they don't move too far away from. This to me is a good thing. In this way, it reminds me more of a Scofield concert.

So here are some highlights for me on this CD. I think that "Little Walter Rides Again" has some great solos. This is one of the songs which Chris Wood has a solo and is just amazing. This song is followed up by Hanuman, which is another highlight to me.

The irony is that most 'supergroups' wind up being less than the sum total of their parts. In contrast, Medeski Martin & Wood's partnership with John Scofield is the definition of a highly successful collaboration. The setlist for this live collection is a balance of material off the group's two studio albums. "A Go Go" was a tight and disciplined enterprise while "Out Louder" expanded the improvisational environment. Coming off the "Out Louder" tour, "In Case The World Changes Its Mind" pushes the jam even further. On stage, these guys were a pyroclastic powerhouse. In this respect, listeners that thought that "A Go Go" was perfect and "Out Louder" took things a bit too far may want to pass on this one. For the committed, there's much to offer. When you're dealing with material and musicians of this caliber, every song is a winner. In particular, 'Little Walter Rides Again' and 'A Go Go' are stand-outs. 'Southern Pacific' has a quirky groove that'll keep your head bobbin' for over eight minutes. The keyboard solo in 'Hunuman' sounds as if it were coming from a record being played backwards. 'What Now' rocks hard but 'Miles Behind' is a sonic blitzkrieg that'll leave you breathless. 'Hottentot' isn't just packed with mind-melting solos, it makes for an explosive closer to an electrifying experience. The two CDs contain a balance of twelve minute cookers and relaxed, reflective material. For years, I've been enthusiastically torrenting dozens of live MSMW shows. While there are some great audience recordings in circulation, there's nothing like a soundboard, official release.Read more ›

I attended a show on this tour and actually remember being a bit underwhelmed. Never-the-less, I passed that off as being just a bad day for the guys and purchased this CD package. I am not sorry I did.

First off, the concert is Medeski Martin and Wood with John Scofield. They combination have put together 2 albums together in the past. There is John Scofield's A Go Go and the MSMW disc, Out Louder. I am a huge MMW fan, but always felt that A Go Go was a fantastic 5 star disc while Out Louder was more of a 3 star effort. The tour this particular live recording is from was from the tour was supporting Out Louder. The thing that makes this album good is that pieces from A Go Go show up with the energy that went with that album (as opposed to the show I attended which felt like it was only Out louder material).

The live performance here captures the energy of A Go Go, and you really see the four piece combo fly. Most pieces are extended improv and jams off of themes and songs from the previously mentioned studio performances. As much as I love MMW, it is John Scofield who shines on the recordings. His performance stands up front and he is carrying the melodies and the improv for most of the recording; you could say he is the voice. So what about MMW? Well they are there, but I can't help but say they play more of a supporting role. Even Scofield steps back, I'm left wanting more from John Medeski and crew. I've heard MMW live at shows before, and the performance here seems a bit reserved. I like the quality of MMW you hear in studio releases like the Radiolarians albums or Combustication, but that just isn't here. That being said, John Scofield steps up and steals the show. It is a solid 4 star set, and if I was a bigger Scofield fan, I'd probably rate it 5 stars.
