A free Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood download

What’s not to like about Medeski Martin & Wood? Their jazzy/jammy grooves set a standard for good taste.

Add guitar virtuoso John Scofield to the team, and it gets even tastier.

“Little Walter Rides Again” – a funky Scofield composition – is available as a FREE MP3. This was the lead track on the 2006 Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood album, “Out Louder.”

To spin it on my Vox blog, click here. To get “Little Walter Rides Again” for yourself, follow this link to Download.com.

This track and three others can also be downloaded directly from Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood... if you have a MySpace account. Just follow this link to the quartet’s MySpace page.

That was funky, reminded me of the Meters with the drummer kicking that fatback beat. Scofield was playing some pretty sweet licks in there, but he's always been a helluva guitarist. I remember when he broke onto the scene during the 70's doing sessions with various fusion groups. He's kinda like a cross between Bill Connors and John Abercrombie.

I think fishesalot nailed it on the Meters influence. And the sound that Medeski is using on the Hammond even sounds like one Art Neville would use.
