    Saw Medeski, Martin and Wood at the Showbox in Seattle last night (great sounding venue). Man, what a great show - some of the stuff was a bit out there for my taste, but for the most part it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. Awesome compositions and DEEP grooves were happenin! Chris Wood went back and forth between a Jazz bass and an upright - his upright tone was boomin! Whenever he would drop down from playing some mad upper register riffs to hit a low open note it was like :D I've never seen an upright played quite that way before...

    Great, great show - check them out if you can...

    It's been too long since I've seen them. Who was the extra 'M'? :)

    And you probably never will again.
    I love it when he just slaps the body to hell and goes off on a mini percussion solo :bassist:
