The quartert of keyboardist John Medeski, guitarist John Scofield, drummer Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood is back for another fun and funky musical romp. Juice is the third studio recording of their musical fellowship. The very electric set of music has the kind of synchronous, improvisational feeling that is the result of the hours this band has spent playing together in recent years. The set list is mostly comprised of songs written by each of the players, with nice renditions of compositions written or co-written by Eddie Harris, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan. The genius of the effort is to hear these gentleman produce something that is wonderfully edgy and musically compelling.
