While musicians John Medeski, Billy Martin and Chris Wood are all virtuosos in their own right, there’s something magical that happens when the trio get together as Medeski Martin & Wood. The group has been together now for 25 years, capturing the jazz and jam worlds by storm with their otherworldly approach to music.In recent years, all three members have been immersed in various projects. Wood tours regularly with The Wood Brothers, while Medeski has found roles in DRKWAV, Phil Lesh & Friends, The Word and many more groups. Just recently, he was announced as a member of Saudade, a new supergroup with members of Deftones, Bad Brains and more. Listen to their debut track here.Of course, MMW is at the very heart of it all. The band’s latest release was Juice, a collaborative work with jazz guitarist John Scofield. While that was the band’s most recent studio project, there’s definitely a different energy when the band has Scofield in tow, as compared to their work as a trio. For the last MMW studio release, we have to look back to the group’s Radiolarian Series, which consisted of three albums released from 2008-2009. The band released a handful of live albums since then, including one with Wilco’s Nels Cline, but today we’ve learned that the band is back in the studio.Check out this update from Billy Martin below:We’re very excited too! We’ll be sure to update once we know more. Until then, you can get down to some 2016 MMW with video footage of their three sets at the moe.-hosted Tropical throe.down festival from earlier this year.

On April 3, the group served Beilke with a second notice of intent to circulate a recall petition. But in a single-sentence letter sent to the City Clerk’s Office last Friday, C-TIP said it intended to halt the recall attempt. Murga said he uncovered a “technical deficiency” in the recall document that forced his group to drop the effort. He said he had referred to Beilke as mayor pro tem instead of mayor in the petition. Beilke claimed Tuesday that the group could not even gather 500 signatures. “I don’t know of anyone who even saw the petition,” he said. But Murga said his group simply ran out of time. He blasted Beilke’s estimate of the number of signatures C-TIP was able to collect. “We have never stated how many signatures we gathered,” he said. “That goes to show his arrogance.” Beilke, who has been on the council for two years, said he believes C-TIP now has 120 days to collect the needed signatures. As part of the recall process, he said he was allowed to write up a rebuttal. He said he would not do so. “Let’s put it this way, I have seven days to put my response in to be published. I didn’t even bother responding before and I won’t bother responding this time,” he said. “I have city business to attend to.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Murga said his group takes issue with Beilke over his support for newly rehired City Manager Chuck Fuentes and the City Council’s decision last year to close the Pico Rivera Stables. Beilke said he did not know why he was being recalled. “I don’t truly know what their reasons are, but whatever their reasons are are bogus and unfounded,” he said. It was C-TIP’s third recall attempt against the mayor. The first came to an anti-climatic end March 16, when C-TIP announced it had failed to collect the needed 5,109 voter signatures to force a special recall election. PICO RIVERA – A local political group has served Pico Rivera Mayor Ron Beilke for the third time with notice they plan to circulate a recall petition against him. Raul Murga, executive director of Pico Rivera Community for Truth in Politics – also known as C-TIP, said he served Beilke with the papers after Tuesday’s City Council meeting. The mayor showed no signs of worry Tuesday night. “It’s a waste of time like the previous two times were,” he said. “The residents absolutely ignore these people and they are happy with the progress we have been making and are more than willing to give this new council a chance. But these people \ have nothing better to do in life.”
