Medeski Martin & Wood manager Liz Penta talks to JazzConnect session attendees about the early days of touring with MMW in a van, and the state of jazz touring today. My favorite comment: “it was fun, but two years touring in a van is really something to get out of the way while you're in your twenties.”
MMW will be at The Mondavi Center in April with Joshua Light Show.
