Music from Jeffrey
This is ‘Shoofly Pie’ by The Wood Brothers from the album ‘Smoke Ring Halo’
It’s a team of two brothers. One plays guitar and sings, and writes most of the tunes, and the other plays bass and sings.
The bass player, Chris Wood, has been a part of a very successful instrumental group called Medeski, Martin and Wood. They are definitely an influence on my Jazz trio and on me personally.
Apparently, Chris and his brother never really played music together until later in life. They’ve added a drummer, who also sings, and it seems they’ve really clicked. I’ve enjoyed their previous albums but this one really stands apart. It’s not quite as loose while still feeling greasy and funky.
They have a rootsy sound which allows them to cover a lot of ground. From blues to gospel to southern soul to funk to folk, they’ve got it all in there in one shape or form.
I’m anxious to hear their albums from here on out. I really think they’re on to something!
