John Medeski (pictured) held keys duties on Verve’s recent Baby Loves Jazz project, so it only makes sense that Medeski, Martin and Wood’s forthcoming disc is being billed as “family music.” MMW’s Let’s Go Everywhere will be released by Little Monster Records on Jan. 8.

[Bassist] Chris Wood’s daughter shares play dates with the daughter of Kate Hyman and Kevin Salem, co-founders of Little Monster Records.

The band went into the studio together, and four days later had composed, arranged and laid down the basic tracks for this high-flying collection of rousing tunes.”
