  • MEDESKI MARTIN & WOOD

    Café du Nord, San Francisco, CA
    Thursday, April 22, 2004


    Set 1: All Improv (presumably since the entire run followed this pattern)

    Set 2: Improv > Improv > Improv > Drum Solo# > Improv > Improv* // Improv > Drum Solo > Improv > Improv

    Encore: Curtis

    * only available recording cuts at this point for a few minutes and starts again; what was played is unknown
    # John minimally joins in at end

    Set I does not circulate; hence the presumption about it too being comprised entirely of improvisation.

– SET II ONLY – PARTIAL (tracks 1-8) –


– SHACK THOUGHTS –
Standing out as one of the most incredible run of shows MMW has ever played, these April 2004 gigs of 100% improvisation exhibit the band at the height of their SHACK skills, pulling endless melodies and grooves out of thin air, along with the usual visits to more out-there/open space.

Each night encores with a tune intended for release on End Of the World Party (Just In Case) later in 2004 — Whiney Bitches never made it to the US release, but I think was on the Japanese release, and was later found on the Note Bleu-Best of the Blue Note Years 1998-2005 compilation disc.

All that to say: Dig into these gigs of pure musical exploration … you won’t be disappointed.

enjoy the grooves,
dug
