Coincidentally, on April 20th, the unofficial “celebrate marijuana” day was the same day as the MMW show on the University of California Davis campus. With reefer everywhere, I filed into the gorgeous Mondavi Center building to enjoy the show.
MMW’s amalgam of jazz, funk and a million other musical currents and impulses is nearly impossible to classify. For this show, they also brought in the Joshua Light Show. The origins of the Joshua Light Show come from the psychedelia movement of the 1960’s.
When this was combined with MMW’s long jam improv sessions, creativity exploded, covering all those there in musical ecstasy.
