John Medeski – Mad Skillet – Vinyl, LP, Indirecto Records, 2019
#Vinyl LP pressing. John Medeski’s Mad Skillet presents its self-titled debut album via Medeski Martin & Wood’s record label, Indirecto Records. Led by the hugely influential keyboardist and featuring guitarist Will Bernard and the legendary Dirty Dozen Brass Band rhythm section of sousaphonist Kirk Joseph and drummer Terence Higgins, Mad Skillet is first and foremost a product of New Orleans. Recorded at the Living Room, a studio housed in a Depression-era church straight across the Mississippi River from downtown New Orleans, Mad Skillet finds the guitarist showcasing the scope of his abilities and tones like never before. Medeski’s longtime friend and collaborator Scotty Hard provided invaluable sonic guidance at the mixing board.
