The trio of John Medeski, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood did as much to reinvigorate and reimagine jazz as anybody over the last three decades. Now, on the 30th anniversary of its release, Real Gone Music is proud to release the band's classic second album It's a Jungle In Here on vinyl for the very first time.
That this record includes covers of tracks by John Coltrane, King Sunny Ade, and a mash-up of Bob Marley with Thelonious Monk speaks volumes about Medeski Martin & Wood's fresh approach to the jazz tradition; but their ability to compose and perform startlingly original material is what really sets them apart. Clearwater blue vinyl pressing limited to 2500 copies, exclusive to Record Store Day.
