I would like to note that the band has always had hiphop and free-jazz influences. It did not start when they went electric. --PAJ
Trey's "[makes me] drive too fast" quote
Anyone have the exact date and/or a source for this? I'm sure it was before the October 1995 Phish shows with MMW, but I couldn't find any other details. Was it in the Phish newsletter, or just a random interview? N2f 06:53, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
Does anyone else think that there's a little too much emphasis on Phish in this article? While they certianly helped with the group's exposure and should be mentioned, I don't think it should be more than one sentence, as opposed to the paragraph we have now. I'm going to edit some of the stuff out, if enough people disagree with me I guess you can add it back, but it doesn't really make any sense to me.
this article seems to be missing an album:

Bob Moses introduced the band?
I was at a show this past Thursday night (Thanksgiving '06), a trio of Berklee grads called O'Neil-Armstrong. After the show I was talking to the drummer, Jeff Armstrong, and he was telling me about this Bob Moses show when we somehow ended up on the subject of Medeski Martin & Wood. Then he tells me that Bob Moses is the one who introduced the three. Supposedly, Moses was something of a mentor for Medeski. John, meanwhile, had been playing with some other musicians when Bob said something like, "hey, these guys are good, but I have these other two guys that would fit with you way better."
No idea how much of this is true, but he was a Berklee grad, had a sick jazz-funk trio, and seemed very sure of it. If anyone finds any information regarding this, let us know. Kevglynn 14:40, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
