Something Else! Reviews.
Boy, is it ever. From the setting to the instrument to the very label it’s appearing on, John Medeski’s aptly named forthcoming album speaks to a different time — a time long, long before his more recent genre-melting experiments with the likes of Martin Medeski and Wood and Spectrum Road.
A Different Time is a solo piano album, and a rather somber one at that. Medeski’s dynamic range never peaks above the tame, mild cocktail happy hours of neighborhoods long deserted by young hooligans who crave a major-tight organ solo
