Please email if you have trouble playing tunes.

Gotta love the mix of tunes found here and Bill Evans fits very nicely with the guys, which makes sense after the amount of time they’ve spent together now … very cool interplay … the slinking opening of Junkyard is fantastic, as is the Improv Intro to “Melodicaccordion Shuffle” — cool to hear them keeping that tune in rotation after its debut on the October acoustic tour. Hermeto’s is a wicked cool treat (I tracked out the opening since it’s a little more unusual than the “normal” opening … whatever that could mean, I guess – HA!)

NOTE: Tit For Tat is a Bill Evans tune and MMW played it on the tour they did with SoulBop in Europe during the summer of 2011. I’d found it labelled as “Rattletrap” on a YouTube video, (stupidly) presumed it was correct and used the title in the setlist for this show:

… well, the tune played that night was Tit For Tat as well — it’s a tune that Medeski guested on from Evans’ latest album, Dragonfly. Anyway, in case anyone wants to update their setlists …

enjoy the grooves,
