John Medeski Flies Solo
Earlier today, we got to hear the wonderfully talented John Medeski play the piano. Many people know him as part of the groove-based jazz trio Medeski Martin and Wood. But, as you’ll hear, John Medeski is more than comfortable on his own.
Medeski recently released his first solo piano album, A Different Time, and he’ll be performing tonight at the ICA in Boston. That’s where we caught up with him this morning. Wearing a baggy sweatshirt and displaying a confident ease, he played original, cover and completely improvisational tunes on a Steinway grand piano in a sun-filled auditorium overlooking Boston Harbor.
