Saturday Music Club: Medeski, Martin and Wood

This will be the first in a weekly installment of some of the music that I can't get enough of. I have been here since 2006, and I don't have American MTV or radio to go by anymore as far as new musical trends. I have yet to hear a single Lady Gaga, Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, or other modern day pop song. This is mostly intentional however because I've been able to let my personal musical preferences evolve with taste instead of trend. So every Saturday, I will be sharing with you some of the incredible music I've found myself drifting to without society and pop culture directing the current. I hope you like it!

Modeski, Martin, and Wood
In truth, I really liked these guys before I moved here. But with so much time in front of the computer on my hands, I got a chance to really explore both their discography and live performances on YouTube. These guys are a Modern Jazz Fusion trio from Brooklyn, NY and have been around since 1991. They are most famous for their ridiculously tight improvisational style and unpredictable live sets. If you can keep your feet still during either of these two performances, you are a stronger being than I....

Love that line. How can anyone really acquire a taste for Justin Bieber? lol.

I've never heard of Medeski, Martin, and Wood, but this song is all right. Not quite my style, but still a decent job.
