MM&W's Spacy 1995 Groove-athon on Black Vinyl LP!
First Time on Vinyl!
Pressed at Gotta Groove Records for Optimum Sound!

For the last 30 years, Medeski Martin & Wood have explored the boundaries of modern jazz, incorporating hip hop, avant-garde, world music, and electronic funk influences into their fearless improvisational style. Its title taken from the first line of "Old Angel Midnight" by Jack Kerouac (himself a legendary improviser), 1995's Friday Afternoon in the Universe flings a whole lot at the wall and just about everything sticks, with mid-'70s Miles Davis the predominant hue in an ever-changing sonic palette. "Chubb Sub" is a favorite, and was used prominently in the Get Shorty soundtrack, but even the most abstract numbers groove and move. First time on vinyl!
