|This show kicked ass. It was a cool venue. you could hear the sound great everywhere. Not enough room for dancing but this show was more of the free form improv mmw than the groove based mmw so it worked well. first set had only like three actual songs and the second set was mostly from Tonic. Whats that flute piano thing called medeski played in the encore? It was awesome. Not a lot of funky stuff but great improv. great venue with a great setlist and i got to meet them after the show, that was cool. They are just nice guys to talk to and you can tell the really appreciate the respect and support all mmw fans give them|

|Couldn't agree more about the assessment of the show. It was a great treat to see Medeski Martin and Wood play a two-set, nearly three hour show and not miss a beat. And Albany was lucky enough to host one of MMW's rare all-acoustic shows. I totally admire their musicianship and hope that they come back to Albany real soon.
It'd have been nicer if the Albany crowd had been a little more respectful of the performers, though. At one point, people began to bleat out requests until someone shouted, "Play whatever you want to play", a statement that was clearly appreciated by Medeski, as he gestured in the affirmative after it was said. And another unfortunate verbal exchange occurred between two other audience members during a quieter moment of a Chris Wood solo. At moments like these, it takes away from the band's performance and becomes more about the crowd, which just shouldn't be...|

|just want to commenton the unbeleivable performance by medeski. The other three were right on but this was one of the most amazing musical performances ive ever seen on his part, particularly because it was him and just his grand piano. It seems that at all points of his playing i was blown away with the techincality and feel that he had going it was just amazing to me. And yea on an unfortunate note there was some guy being an asshole during chris's solo, that guy was directly behind me and would not stop blurting out obscenities for no apparent reason, and sad as it may be that someone resorted to telling him to shut the fuck up it was quite necessary to get him to stop being so obnoxious. the guy was obviously either way too drunk or drugged up to be in such a situation that the venue provided and i whole heartedly agree that he took away from that part of the show with his rudeness and immaturity|

|Pappy Check as listed above was actually the Encore, not part of the second set. the first unknown/new song in set two involved Billy playing the melody on thumb piano and john doubling on piano with a piece of paper on the strings to create a buzzing sound. The last unknown/new song was a bossa feel that ended with pandiero|
