Medeski, Martin and Wood
Packed show during which yours truly was constantly asked to move out of the aisle – and when situation got more stable we finally managed to catch a good view of MMW performance.

Big Ears recently shared a glimpse into its 2019 lineup and its about as strong/impressive as one can expect from BE – Jlin, The Messthetics and Nils Frahm are just few of the names that caught our eye.
While we’re waiting for next year’s edition to happen, here’s our entire video playlist for BE2018, followed by tweets that mention the artists that we recently added to our playlist.

Started #BigEarsKnox Day 3 with a double dose of the pastoral – Jenny Scheinman’s spellbinding chamber-Americana to the films of H. Lee Waters with Robbies (Fulks & Gjersoe), Kannapolis; followed by Michael Gordon’s beautiful Rushes for 7 bassoons.
