Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"It's an album of slow, gentle music," says the perennial poll-winning guitarist. "But at the same time, we didn't want it to be easy listening. We tried to really play on all the tunes. For me, no matter what kind of music, it's really important that it be fresh and that we're really playing something. The creativity, when accompanying or soloing, has to be there." Regarding the relaxed accord that his empathetic crew strikes on A Moment's Peace, Scofield says, "These guys can play beautifully and unhurried and really capture the mood of a song. To be relaxed but have it be fresh and energetic...that's the trick."

About the Artist

John Scofield's guitar work has influenced jazz since 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.

Born in Ohio and raised in suburban Connecticut, Scofield took up the guitar at age 11, inspired by both rock and blues players. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. 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. He began his international career as a bandleader and recording artist in 1978. From 1982-1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis. His Davis stint placed him firmly in the foreground of jazz consciousness as a player and composer.

Since that time he has prominently led his own groups in the international Jazz scene, recorded over 30 albums as a leader (many already classics) including collaborations with contemporary favorites like Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Eddie Harris, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bill Frisell, Brad Mehldau, Mavis Staples, Government Mule, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano and Phil Lesh. He's played and recorded with Tony Williams, Jim Hall, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Dave Holland, Terumasa Hino among many jazz legends. Throughout his career Scofield has punctuated his traditional jazz offerings with funk-oriented electric music. All along, the guitarist has kept an open musical mind.

Touring the world approximately 200 days per year with his own groups, he is an Adjunct Professor of Music at New York University, a husband and father of two.

A bona fide guitar hero and masterful improviser, John Scofield has covered a wide spectrum of musical styles with rare authority over the last four decades of his celebrated career. From funk and fusion to swinging jazz standards, rockfueled jams, lush orchestral collaborations, earthy blues and old-time gospel music, Scofield has imbued each style with his distinctive six-string voice, earning accolades for his triumphs along the way.

This is a collection of "slow Sco", but make no mistake - the band plays with an intensity most cannot match. All I can say is, what a band! Really one of the best ballad records I've heard in a long, long time. Sco's take on Abbey Lincoln's "Throw it Away" is one of the most beautiful guitar recordings I've ever heard. Sco makes the guitar literally sing. Brian Blade shows that a drummer on a ballads recording can bring it without ever overplaying. Goldings is great as always, on piano and organ. Colley glues it together on bass. Mostly what impresses is that these guys sound like a working band, even though they're not. They should be!

More of this band Sco! Please!

This is the album I had been waiting for Scofield to release. Quiet, but still challenging harmonically and all jazz. Having Larry Goldings on the session is great. A wonderful release, highly recommended.

I'm a 50-something who has been a Sco fan since the early 80's. I think this is the best album he's ever released. His phrasing is tasteful and toneful over some beautiful arrangements. His tone is woody and warm, and the album has an intimacy and a gentle vibe that reminds me of Bill Evans. Scofield has nothing to prove -- he's an American jazz master -- and his easy approach to these songs demonstrates a confidence that can only come from experience. This is Sco at his highest and best ... you won't be disappointed.

This is John Scofield at his best : lyrical, harmonically out-yet in , & bending chords / notes as only 'Sco' can do ! This album is so full of beauty, and soul - it is the kind of listen that makes you gasp with awe .

John Scofield is a man of many colors, but they are always his very own. On this beautiful release, he shows his romantic side, without a single unnecessary note on the whole album.
His collaborators, famous players like himself, shine with cautious virtuosity.
If you like the songs included here, you will find more than a moment`s peace. And lots of surprises.

Long a John Scofield fan, this recent work beautifully illustrates this fine artists evolution. It is thoughtful, introspective and a joy to listen to no matter your mood. From gray overcast days to spirited drives on back country roads, this work never disappoints. Brilliant gathering of musicians too with Larry Goldsmith on piano and organ, Scott Colley on bass and the ever amazing, innovative and always tasteful in the moment Brian Blade on drums. I'm from the Beatles generation, heavily oriented towards guitar; with that it rarely gets any better than John Scofield.

Splendid performances by all. Sco does more to interpret a ballad expressively than any guitarist alive, and his tune selection here is awesome. An extra plus: My wife doesn't mind this album, because it's inside playing and quiet. Colley is wonderful on bass, too, and the keyboard solos are just beautiful and tasteful.

I'll admit that I'm not terribly adept with John Scofield's catalog, nor am I a jazz aficionado. Nevertheless, I am in love with guitar music and am always looking for the next wonderful instrumental album. Some of my favorites include Leo Kottke's "6 & 12 String Guitar," Michael Hedges' "Aerial Boundaries," Peter Frampton's "Fingerprints," and Ronnie Earls' "Hope Radio." Add to that list John Scofield's "A Go Go" album. It's one of those albums that, to me anyway, seems genre-defying. It's a bit rock, a bit jazz, a bit funk, a bit fusion.

Now, add another title to that list. That would be Scofield's "A Moment's Peace." It's just gorgeous. The burn may be slow, but this is not mere cocktail music. It's rich and sensual and timeless. To say his playing is tasteful and expressive would be understatements. The opening track, "Simply Put," is stunning. As is his take on The Beatles' 1968 classic "I Will." "I Want To Talk About You" seems to distill everything for which Scofield is known - beautiful tone, apt phrasing, exciting runs, flawless melody - and puts it all in one tune.

There's not a dud on this album. I love it! Highly recommended!
