about

For the first time, Medeski Martin & Wood drummer Billy Martin (illy B) plays his own bass riffs combined with his beats and other instruments that at times, sound reminiscent of his band Medeski Martin & Wood. This record is infused with some serious musical solos and accompaniment by Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, T Bone Burnett, John Zorn), John Medeski (The Word, Medeski Martin & Wood), Alexandria Smith, Rob Reinfurt and Jen Liu.

You can track his progression from inception on his instagram feed @illybeats using #illy_B_ass
