“What other player can get a room full of people to dance to freakin’ keyboard jazz?” — Rolling Stone

“Like a mad scientist who’s been stuck in his lab for months, Medeski proudly shows off the results of his experiments… The doctor is in session.” — All About Jazz

Jazz fans put John Medeski in a box at their own risk. The keyboardist is best known for his groove-inflected work with jamband juggernaut Medeski, Martin, and Wood, but he first made his mark as a budding improviser through gigs with Dewey Redman, Billy Higgins and the celebrated Boston big band Either/Orchestra. A stylistic omnivore, Medeski is as comfortable exploring the outer reaches with John Zorn and David Fiuczynski as he is producing an album by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. He’s delved into the sacred side of the funk equation as a member of gospel-drenched quartet The Word and brought his trademark sound to Spectrum Road, the all-star band that celebrates the electric music of drumming legend Tony Williams. For this solo performance in Miner Auditorium, Medeski will draw from a number of sources—originals, spontaneous improvisations and standards—a parallel to the material on his new solo piano release, A Different Time, promising a night of delightful surprises.
