Medeski, Martin, and Wood are back on tour this summer playing by themselves, with John Scofield, and a few other side projects such as The Wood Brothers, The Johns (John Medeski & John Scofield), and MAGO (Billy Martin & John Medeski). MAGO will be performing at Bonnaroo on Friday June 15th.

MSMW recently toured Tokyo and the shows have been sizzling. The fusion of John Scofield's guitar is a delicious mix with MMW.
In April, Out Louder was released in Japan and Europe. There's a bonus disc that features live cyts from a gig at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City. They were recorded in November 2006 by David Kent. They are crisp and sound amazing.
I wish I didn't have to work in Las Vegas this summer because I'd love to hit the road and see several different Jazz Festivals all over Europe with MSMW head lining.
