Newbie here, saving up for my first purchase of a DB. I just wanted to pass along the word about my favorite player out there. Chris Wood of Medeski, Martin & Wood is absolutely outstanding. All three are, really, and they push not only the limits of jazz but music in general to breathtaking extremes. The trio has acoustic jazz roots and has progressed to their latest album, Uninvisible. Uninvisible features a host of guest musicians including DJs (??), but everything is as tasteful as can be. This album, too, is more atmospheric and focused on mood than the others. The bass plays a larger role in this album as well. Chris Wood is known to pull out a Hofner on occasion, so beware DB purists! Does anyone else have opinions on Wood / MMW? Curious to know from the more experienced players on this board.
