I'm glad to see MMW received some review from Haaretz, however the article seems less informed that it could have been. The writer does not seem knowledgeable about MMW. Having been listening and going to MMW shows for the last 14 years, I have seen many a show and this one deserves much more credit. I'm not sure , which MMW the audience came to hear and observe, but I certainly was not disappointed. The band is generally thought to hinge of the talent of Medeski with the support of Martin and Wood, however this show presented itself differently. MMW played many songs from their latest releases, Radiolarians I,II,and III that showcase a more structured sound and framework. Chris Wood stood out, playing most of the set on electric bass and created ample opportunity to be in awe of his talent, especially in MMW's take on the old American folk tune, 'Satin Your Kingdom Must Come Down." The band also brought an old favorite, Sugar Craft, from the 1998 release 'Combustication.' The inclusion of "Hey Joe" was without a doubt great as well as the other Hendric classic, 'Crosstown Traffic.' I'll be the first to admit that the show wasn't not the full-one head rush that normally manifests during MMW shows, but there was much more there than what this lackluster article reveals. Please take more thought and knowledgeable into your reviews or send someone else.
