A little while back, 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 released his first solo piano album, A Different Time, in 2013. We caught up with him that December at the ICA in Boston, where he played original, cover and completely improvisational tunes on a Steinway grand piano in a sun-filled auditorium overlooking Boston Harbor.
John Medeski will be performing with New England Conservatory's jazz orchestra at Jordan Hall on Thursday, February 26.
