Billy Martin, who for the past two decades was the drummer of the genre-busting trio Medeski Martin & Wood, wanted his new project to be something completely different from what his fans are accustomed to hearing from him. With a lineup consisting solely of trombonist Curtis Fowlkes, tuba player Marcus Rojas, trumpeter Steven Bernstein and Martin serving as his own rhythm section, comparisons to anything that have come before are unlikely. Martin calls Wicked Knee “ragtime funk,” that is “cathartic, heart-based and primarily intended for situations that invite people to let go, throw down, get down and have fun.”
