  • Billy Martin/Wil Blades Duo

July 7. Billy Martin is well known as one third of out jazz/jam-circuit faves Medeski, Martin & Wood. The drummer’s newest side project, a duo with soulful San Francisco organist Wil Blades, is currently touring on the pair’s debut album, Shimmy. The appropriately named set recalls the great 1960s organ jazz records by Jimmy Smith, Richard “Groove” Holmes, Brother Jack McDuff, and Charles Earland, and positively bubbles over with booty-rolling rhythms. Get yourself some when the twosome hits the Colony Cafe early this month. (The Dharma Bums drop by July 1; Nina Violet sings July 29.) 9pm. $15. Woodstock.
