Weekend Musical Diversion: The Wood Brothers

January 29, 2011

I’ve been a big fan of experimental jazz/jam band Medeski Martin and Wood for while now…great music to write to by the way. In any case, the Wood Brothers is a folky blues band that features MMW bassist Chris Wood and his brother Oliver. One thing I think you’ll notice and appreciate is the sound of Chris Wood’s standup bass which really gives their music a nice groove. The song featured today is a cover of the popular Allman Brothers tune. It’s a big more mellow, but I really dig their interpretation and hope you do too. Have a great weekend!
