The new Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood album, Juice, will be in stores worldwide on September 16, 2014.

Check out the Paste premiere of “Sham Time”.

The blueprint for Juice was found in a compilation of African-derived music put together by drummer Billy Martin and shared among the ensemble. “We all love music from Brazil, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and it has always been intertwined with jazz,” explains Medeski. “We got together and started exploring that connection in our own way.”

“This is our version of different African-based forms,” Scofield echoes. “Or, at least, that’s what we started with…eventually we said, ‘This is the outline, but we can do whatever the hell we want.’”
