Biography

Born in Ohio, 1951, JOHN SCOFIELD is one of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar, a creative artist of the rarest sort: a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent and rock-solid aesthetic identity. Regardless of the stylistic setting, his distinct guitar sound and compositions are unmistakably Scofieldesque, always coupled with an improvisational excellence and dedicated to ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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."

Having Larry Goldings on the session is great.

Nevertheless, I am in love with guitar music and am always looking for the next wonderful instrumental album.

His phrasing is tasteful and toneful over some beautiful arrangements.

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.
