Medeski Martin & Wood Are Working On Their First Studio Album As A Trio Since 2009

first_imgWhile 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.last_img read more

The project of the Cultural and Tourist Route “Roads of the Frankopans” is coming to an end. Will it come to life in the market?

first_imgA noble family whose origin is connected to the island of Krk, and they have expanded their influence to the area of ​​Kvarner, part of Lika, and part of the interior of Croatia. As in addition to the historical heritage and significance of the Frankopan family for the entire Kvarner, we have inherited many castles and castles, and a project for the development and revitalization of the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” The Frankopan princes of Krk have left a deep mark on Kvarner, and due to their exceptional international influence, many consider them the most important family in the history of Croatia, and the best word to describe them is diplomats. The project holder is the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and the partners are the cities of Rijeka, Kraljevica, Bakar and Čabar, Čavle, Lokve and Vinodolska municipalities and the Diocese of Krk, the Natural History Museum of Rijeka, the Krk Cultural Center, the Rijeka Tourist Board and the Kvarner Tourist Board. The total value of the project is HRK 64.116.001,04, and the EU grant amounts to HRK 47.306.235,33. The cultural and tourist route “Frankopan Roads” includes 17 castles, fortified towns and castles and 3 sacral complexes. The route is divided into four territorial units that emphasize the diversity of the landscape of the Kvarner region, namely the island of Krk, Gorski kotar, Rijeka and its surroundings and Vinodol. The aim of the project is to develop a cultural and tourist product whose contents will attract more visitors to the locations of castles that were not in the foreground of the tourist offer of the Kvarner region and thus revive the less developed parts of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.  The project protects the cultural heritage of the Frankopan family in the Kvarner region and creates new socio-economic value through its tourist valorization.center_img More about the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” find out HERE The project ends at the end of 2019, and the Cultural and Tourist Route “Frankopan Roads” will give new added value to the project Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020.

After the renovation and revitalization of certain castles and castles, and the definition of a tourist product, now remains the most important step – that the Cultural-tourist route “Roads of Frankopan” come to life “with full lungs” on the market as an interesting rounded tourist product. The form is there, now we need quality and interesting content and storytelling. The history of the Frankopan princes of Krk lasted more than five and a half centuries: members of this noble family were the bearers of political, social, economic and cultural development in their area, primarily in the area of ​​today’s Croatian region Kvarner.last_img read more
