Today’s song of the day is Medeski, Martin & Wood’s “The Lover.” It’s the first track on their classic 1995 release, Friday Afternoon in the Universe. Drummer Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood expertly execute the tune’s impeccable groove. And John Medeski’s expressive melody and solos lift the music to a euphoric place where funk and jazz collide. This is a strut song. Take it to go.
