John Medeski, Nels Cline, Bill Frisell, Billy Martin, and more extremely talented musicians came together on Tuesday (2/6) for a benefit concert at Le Poisson Rouge to help support Creative Music Studio, whose mission is to engage "musicians and listeners from all backgrounds to deepen and broaden their musical sensitivity, expression and understanding through workshops, recordings and concerts worldwide." Both Medeski and trumpet/trombone player Steven Bernstein have hosted workshops as part of CMS. As our photographer notes, "Nels Cline playing with Bill Frisell was an epic thing to witness."
