Medeski Martin & Wood to Premiere New Documentary

Not Not Jazz captures trio recording new album in upstate New York

Medeski Martin & Wood

Avant-jazz-funk trio Medeski Martin & Wood have a new documentary coming out—Not Not Jazz—set to premiere at the Woodstock Film Festival on Oct. 4.

The film, directed by Jason Miller, will be screened at the Woodstock Bearsville Theater on October 4 and again on October 5 at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck.

The documentary, which was filmed nearly two years ago, chronicles John Medeski, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood recording a new album at Allaire Studios in Shokan, New York, a short drive from Big Indian, New York, where the trio hosts Camp MMW. Part Berklee Summer Session, part rock ‘n’ roll fantasy camp, and part spiritual retreat, the five-day camp welcomes people of all ages.

Following the October 4 screening, Martin and the film’s director will answer questions. Martin will also give a solo performance after the session.

Miller is an Emmy-nominated artist originally from Atlanta, Georgia. His first feature documentary, The Past Is a Grotesque Animal, chronicling prolific indie-glam-rock band Of Montreal, was released in 2014 via Oscilloscope Labs. Some of the artists and brands Miller has directed work for include Chairlift, J. Mascis, Diplo, A-Trak, Riff Raff, Ray-Ban, FX Networks, and Fender. 

Tickets for the October 4 screening cost $12, tickets for the October 5 screening cost $10.
