On the provocative Omnisphere, recorded live in 2015, Medeski Martin & Wood venture into contemporary classical music, with the help of 20-piece chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound. The ambitious program offers a mix of compositions penned by musicians from both ensembles, starting with the suite-like “Kid Tao Mammal (unworldliness weirdo),” by AWS percussionist Payton MacDonald. Leapfrogging brass and woodwind lines are followed by John Medeski’s trippy electric-piano declarations, wide-open chiming, violin and clarinet statements intermingled with bassist Chris Wood’s upright interjections, Billy Martin’s extended trap-kit buildup, and finally a furious, rapidly intensifying statement of the initial theme.
