Classic thirty two - Destination Combustication


AS JAZZ musicians go, there's not many about who can demonstrate effortless virtuosity while still sounding damn good as well as Medeski, Martin And Wood can.
In a genre known for its ability to turn the general listening public off, the trio of keyboardist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood make their jazz sound fresh, funky and fun.
On Combustication in particular, they take their jazz roots and thrust elements of funk, hip hop, soul, rock, anything they can lay their hands on, in to what is an instinctive, experimental journey.
For those unsure, download yourself a copy of the track Coconut Boogaloo and be instantly converted.
