with John Medeski of MMW
& Reeves Gabrels of The Cure
One of the most inventive and ever-changing bands in all of new jazz. There is simply not another band like Club d’Elf on the planet." - Russ Davis, Jazz America
"Crushed between the borders of Morocco, jam band land and the kingdom of avant-garde jazz lies Club d’Elf...James Brown-meets-Sun-Ra." - Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald
"Club d'Elf sounds like the lovechild of Pink Floyd and George Clinton, dropped in Marrakesh...some deeply psychedelic music." - Marlon Bishop, WNYC
Reeves Gabrels (Guitar)
Gabrels is known for both his current tour with The Cure, one of Britain's best-known alternative rock bands, and his long partnership with British singer David Bowie, as guitarist, bandmate, co-writer and co-producer from 1987 to 1999, an essential part of Bowie's 90s sound.
John Medeski (Piano/Keyboards)
John Medeski, of the genre-defying trio Medeski Martin & Wood, has garnered fans across the spectrum. Built upon jazz roots, electronics and rhythmic grooves, MMW broke out of the traditional jazz sphere and shared bills with The Roots, Beck, A Tribe Called Quest, Ray Charles, Hermento Pascoal, and Phish, frequently appearing in venues unavailable to most jazz artists.
