WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

John Scofield is part of a generation of jazz guitarists that includes Pat Metheny, John Abercrombie, Mike Stern and Bill Frisell. His influence began in the late 70's and is going strong today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. After a debut recording with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker, Scofield was a member of the Billy Cobham-George Duke band for two years. In 1977 he recorded with Charles Mingus, and joined the Gary Burton quartet. From 1982-1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis. Since 1978, he has prominently led his own groups in the international Jazz arena and recorded over 30 albums as a leader, including collaborations with contemporary favorites like Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Eddie Harris, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bill Frisell, Brad Mehldau, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano and others. Throughout his career, Scofield has punctuated his traditional jazz offerings with funk-oriented electric music, while always remaining open to new forms of musical expression.
