Chris Wood Plugs in for The Wood Brothers Album

The Wood Brothers: ParadiseMedeski, Martin & Wood bassist Chris Wood has gone electric on Paradise, his fifth album with The Wood Brothers, which, fittingly, includes his brother, Oliver.

Chris Wood is better known for his double bass work, but on Paradise, he plays electric bass guitar while he and his brother rock out a bit more than usual for the Americana band.

Just check out “Singin’ to Strangers”:

And then there’s “Never and Always,” which features Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, according to the Wall Street Journal, which also notes that the album, recorded in Nashville, was the first written with all members of The Wood Brothers present.

Paradise is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
