Medeski Martin & Wood Announces New Album With Alarm Will Sound, Shares First Single [Listen]

first_imgMedeski Martin & Wood with Alarm Will Sound have announced the release of a new album, Omnisphere, due September 14th via MMW’s own imprint, Indirecto Records. The seven-track program on Omnisphere presents an ideal balance, with original music by members of both groups, plus new AWS arrangements of two cuts off MMW’s 2004 release, End of the World Party (Just in Case). Today, the bands release the first single off their collaborative album, “End Of The World Party”, a reimagined take on the 2004 track, via DownBeat. Listen up:Medeski Martin & Wood with Alarm Will Sound – “End of the World Party”Omnisphere poses a compelling question: “What would happen if one of the most adventurous groups to emerge in jazz and improvised music in the last three decades were to join up with an orchestra that counts among the boldest forces in contemporary classical?” According to the press release, “The results are both expected, in the peerless level of the musicianship, and stunning, in the sweeping stylistic range of the program. But more than anything, Omnisphere speaks to the respect and creative kinship shared between these two trailblazing ensembles.”“The more we worked together, the more I realized how perfect this is. How they are, for their universe, very much like us,” says keyboardist John Medeski. “We have a certain connection that’s like family and they’re like a family, so it’s like these two families coming together.”Recorded live at The Newman Center in Denver, Colorado in February 2015, Omnisphere fulfills a long-held aspiration for Medeski, drummer-percussionist Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood. In the earliest days of the band, they would often listen to classical and chamber music as a source of musical inspiration, conceptualizing the idea of how to merge their freewheeling improvisational jazz explorations with the more composed approach of orchestral music.“We had a collection of over 500 CDs, and that’s what got us through,” Martin said onstage in Denver, recalling MMW’s early road-warrior years. “And there was a lot of chamber music, contemporary classical music: Ligeti, Feldman, Sun Ra even. So sharing that and now we’re here, it’s a dream come true, and we love it.” For Alarm Will Sound, the feelings were mutual. “We knew we had a winner of an idea,” says Alan Pierson, the ensemble’s artistic director and conductor. “A number of [our musicians] have really idolized Medeski Martin & Wood for years, and so there was a lot of excitement in the group.”The new “End Of The World Party” track will be available on all DSPs this Friday, August 14th, with the full album dropping on September 14th.

Steve McClaren reveals the main problem Mikel Arteta must fix at Arsenal

first_imgArteta was alongside Pep Guardiola for Man City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday (AFP via Getty Images)‘There’s no responsibility in terms of going with runners defending.‘There are no tackles until they get way back on the edge of their own box which is too late then.‘So I can see Arteta going into Arsenal and going, ‘you know what, in terms of build-up possession, keeping the ball, we’ve got players who can do that. All I need to teach this team is attitude to defend and win the ball back between five and eight seconds, which is what Man City do’. That’s his philosophy.‘I think he can can instil that at Arsenal, he can tweak Arsenal in terms of defenders, which I think they definitely need.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘Defenders are dropping too deep, they are not going and pressing it, they are not mobile and athletic enough to play the way he’ll probably want to play.‘He could change that a little bit but he can also change that in the transfer market.‘I just think Arsenal are further ahead than Everton are and Arteta knows Arsenal, he’s got an affinity with Arsenal, it’s a little bit like Frank [Lampard] going to Chelsea, he knows Chelsea, it’s working, he knows the kids there.‘And with that front line I’d me going, ‘I’d love to work with that front line, just throw them a ball they’ll score goals, now behind that I need to [address it].’ Arteta has been Guardiola’s assistant at Man City since 2016 (EPA)‘You think that would be anti-Manchester City but Manchester City only win the league because of their raised defence, because when they are attacking they defend.‘And they are not winning games in the present moment because they are not doing that consistently enough and they’re getting caught.‘Arsenal are not doing that at all. That’s why Man City scored three easy goals on transition counter-attacks, their team is like that [open] instead of being compact.‘So he [Arteta] just needs to tweak a few things, work on the training ground, get the players around him, change the attitude, get them working harder off the ball and recovering the ball quicker and Arsenal can be better than what they are.’AdvertisementAdvertisementMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
