Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Organ trio cum jam band Medeski Martin & Wood present their first album aimed at the next generation of jazz fans. Not the usual kids album, Let's Go Everywhere engages children on their level, which is fits just right with the "sound of surprise" jazz ethos. Laying down tracks with abandon in an upstate New York studio, MMW then invited their own kids and their friends to flesh out the grooves with off-the-wall lyrics and performances, such as "Pirates Don't Take Baths," "Cat Creeps," and "The Squalb," the latter courtesy of Lounge Lizard John Lurie. In true jazzbo fashion, they sometimes take nursery rhymes as points of departure. "Pat a Cake" gets a snotty punk ...

Laying down tracks with abandon in an upstate New York studio, MMW then invited their own kids and their friends to flesh out the grooves with off-the-wall lyrics and performances, such as "Pirates Don't Take Baths," "Cat Creeps," and "The Squalb," the latter courtesy of Lounge Lizard John Lurie. In true jazzbo fashion, they sometimes take nursery rhymes as points of departure. "Pat a Cake" gets a snotty punk treatment by Martin's daughter Dakota; "Hickory Dickory Dock" benefits from a beatnik-style percussion section. Packed with exotic instruments and bursting with supple rhythms, Let's Go Everywhere will expand little minds while entertaining their folks.
All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
Medeski, Martin & Wood have always considered their music as being for the kid in all of us, no matter our age. For Let's Go Everywhere, they really emphasize the childlike approach to music-making, staying fun and funky while adapting various tunes of adolescence and inventing a few silly songs of their own. With help from grown-up vocalists and selected children, MMW take liberties in their musical image by relating to the playful, nonchalant, and carefree innocence of youth. The title track is a great example of being a rascal without devilish or campy affectations, as singer Tim Ingham modifies and extends the lyrics to the famous Johnny Cash tune "I've Been Everywhere," replete with handclapping. The scrubbing song "Pirates Don't Take Baths" is hilarious, in a shuffle with Ingham and Medeski's piano; "On an Airplane" goofs it up more as Chris Wood sings or plays harmonica; while "The Train Song" gains speed in a sly New Orleans-tinged tango, with Oliver Wood's bluesy vocalizing. Dr. John would likely be amused by "Let's Go" in an old-style Crescent City groove; there's a 6/8 Latin version of "Hickory Dickory Dock" with spoken lyrics by Lindsay Dyer alongside only Billy Martin's drumming; and "Pat a Cake" is a kid's rap with Martin pounding out the funk. Few instrumentals crop up, but "Cat Creeps" provides Medeski with an opportunity to use at least three keyboards -- one a Farfisa organ -- in choogling stairstep motion, but for "Far East Sweets" (for Haribo candies?) the sound is koto-like, Asian-derived and mysterious. Perhaps "Where's the Music," with its tacit sections waiting for the children to yell out the title refrain, speaks out the best not only on the attitude of how youth music is invisible, but also on where the core of MMW's organ funk music lies. Although not attempting to be Sharon, Lois & Bram, Raffi, or (thankfully) Barney, Medeski, Martin & Wood have struck a chord with their inner child, while presenting music that any growing toddler, tween, or teen can relate to.

    Fun and engaging

    I bought this CD after reading about it on the internet. I wanted to introduce my grandchildren to different rhythms. All of us enjoy dancing and acting out to the music and the kids are sad when it is time to turn off the music.

    The fun, grooving, funky tracks and fun lyrics provide lots of enjoyment for kids and adults. The title track, "Let's Go Everywhere", is a fun take on Geoff Mack's "I've Been Everywhere" (recorded by many, including Johnny Cash). "The Squalb" brought up an interesting debate about what's real and what isn't while grinning from ear to ear. I knew it was a winner when both my son and I broke out into guffaws when listening to "The Train Song." The music is sophisticated, accessible, danceable, and singable. What more to ask for?
