The Wood Brothers - Ways Not To Lose CD

This one's got the seal of quality stamped all over it! Featuring Oliver Wood (leader of longtime HGMN band King Johnson) on guitar and his brother Chris (from world-renowned trio Medeski, Martin, and Wood) on bass, this album was produced by John Medeski (also of the aforementioned world-famous trio) and features drums from Kenny Wollesen (John Scofield, Sex Mob, John Zorn). Including the brotherly duo's take on several King Johnson staples, this album also showcases the intrinsic musical bond that only two such talented siblings could share.

Oliver and Chris Wood grew up in Boulder, Colorado. Sons of a Poet and a Microbiologist, they both took up music. Oliver moved to Atlanta and became a southerner. Chris moved to New York City and became a Yankee. Now, after years of musical and geographical separation they have reunited. While in Atlanta, Oliver soaked up the roots of blues, the soul of the south, and found he had a talent for writing and singing songs. His band, King Johnson (named after Freddy King and Robert Johnson) toured mostly in the southern states. Meanwhile, Chris was living in Manhattan playing everything from free jazz to rock and roll. This is where he met his band mates to form Medeski Martin & Wood. Now The Wood Brothers have begun a collaboration that combines their shared childhood influences with everything they've learned since leaving home. Their music has a rootsy feel that blends blues, folk, and rock music in a guitar/bass duo, with the unique stamp of Oliver's personable voice and Chris' resonant bass work!
