Medeski Martin and Wood Uninvisible

I've always hated how jazz purists seem to think that jazz stopped evolving sometime in the 1960s and how everything post-fusion is something other than jazz. They're wrong, of course. Their jazz is a museum piece, while all the diversity currently saddled with the condescending banner of nu-jazz is really bearing the standard. Medski, Martin and Wood have long been the leaders of this new school, and their skills don't falter on their tenth album, Uninvisible. Mixing live with loops, scratches with solos and an obscure array of rhythmic patterns and atmospheric shifts, MMW once again prove the purists are silly old fools. (Blue Note)
