Notes from the Underground [Indirecto Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Before they went electric and funky, John Medeski, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood were acoustic and funky -- and a lot of other things -- on this exciting early CD. They ruminate like a conventional jazz piano trio when the whim hits them, or move outside when Medeski explodes into Don Pullen-esque clusters.
