"...But Medeski, Martin & Wood, a New York-bred keyboards, drums, and bass trio, will have none of that. Consider their itinerary of Austin appearances: Last year, they played the Continental Club; this week, they appear tonight (Thursday 4) at Emo's and on Friday (5) at the White Rabbit..."

"...Every time you're about to write Buddy off as a obnoxious pig, he has some kind of touching moment that reminds you that “pigs” are people, too. Whereas someone like Martin Scorsese can give us a fascinating portrait of a hateful, self-defeating “almost was” in something like his monumental Raging Bull, what we have in Mr..."

"...(Wilder's weakness as a filmmaker was that many of his films seemed just a tad too long.) With Kiss Me, Stupid, however, Wilder found popular sentiment – and the Catholic Church and Hollywood censors, too – turning against him. The comedy went too far in flouting its sexual indiscretions with its story of a couple of would-be songwriters in Climax, Nev., who try to sell one of their tunes to the popular entertainer Dino (played by Dean Martin, in a self-referential send-up of his image)..."

"...She weighs 142 pounds… on each side.” (“Save Your Vote for Clarence Mudd”) “Elf Dilly has a three-legged chicken by the name of Maxine.” (“I Might Break Even”) 1965’s Friday’s Child (“…is a little ugly”), which new reissue liners from Patti Smith power source and pop historian Lenny Kaye tag as a “more traditional singer-songwriter album,” incorporates Hazlewood’s NSVIP mockery into a Roger Miller template. Dean Martin quaff “Houston,” for instance, does for the Bay City was Marty Robbins’ “El Paso” did for Curt Kirkwood..."
"...While Mishka's clearly a Marley disciple, 2008's Above the Bones is all Kaya and no Confrontation. – Thomas Fawcett Medeski, Martin & Wood..."
"...The soundtrack follows suit: The very present thrum of 6,000 horsepower underpins Austin sound designer Will Patterson’s fluid, rolling tone poems, further enhanced by the muscular cred of percussionist Billy Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood) and jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, with the occasional pickle bucket and Phillip Glassy signifier thrown in for good documentary measure...."
"...Medeski Martin & WoodEnd of the World Party (Just in Case) (Blue Note) There's a razor-thin line between a groove and a rut. And to be quite honest, for a while it was looking as if these pioneering jazz funk jammers had slipped irrevocably into a creative quagmire..."
"...Over 20 years of discipline, practice, and devotion to making music for the head and heart are enough; now he wants to forget all he's learned and play instinctually - find a backbeat, a groove, and let's be honest, an audience. So he called Medeski, Martin, and Wood..."
"...Oren Bloedow has made his name playing bass with downtown Manhattan jazz mavericks like Wayne Horvitz and the Lounge Lizards, but he's got pop aspirations, too; on The Luckiest Boy in the World, Bloedow straps on the six-string as he and his pals Martin, Medeski, and Wood light out for off-kilter singer-songwriter territories. "In the Clinch" starts things off in an oddly fragmentary manner: John Medeski begins with some stop-time piano, Billy Martin kicks in some martial drumming, Bloedow's voice leaps from the baritone range into a fragile falsetto like Jeff Buckley barely back from the dead, and then, just as he starts picking at his guitar, the song fades out..."
