Medeski, Martin & Wood had already created a series of fine albums and a fervent following before they were signed to Blue Note, one of the most prestigious labels in jazz history. But rather than taking it easy after having made it in the jazz world, MM&W actually pushed the envelope even further during the Blue Note years, continually challenging their listeners as well as themselves. As for the rest of the album, fans may quibble about this omission or that, but the track selection is excellent and they've sequenced it well, wisely throwing chronology out the window. Note Bleu is an excellent overview of their Blue Note years, and would be the perfect starting place for those who haven't yet entered the world of Medeski, Martin & Wood. 1 The Dropper Medeski, Martin & Wood 3:31. 2 Sugar Craft Medeski, Martin & Wood 3:19.

Medeski Martin & Wood – Medeski Martin & Wood is an American avant-jazz-funk band formed in 1991, consisting of John Medeski on keyboards, Billy Martin on drums, and Chris Wood on bass. The band is influenced by musical traditions including funk and hip hop and is known for a style sometimes described as avant-groove. Particularly significant were records from the Blue Note catalogue and these DJs included Gilles Peterson, who had residencies at several London clubs in the 1980s, began in his own small pirate radio station and then moved to the much larger Kiss-FM. In 1988 with producer Eddie Piller he formed the label Acid Jazz Records, the first release from the company was the compilation Totally Wired, which contained obscure jazz funk tracks from the 1970s with updated new tracks.
