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

Amazon.com

This 1993 recording is one of John Scofield's best, with a band that adds the soul-jazz veteran Eddie Harris to a group of the guitarist's regular associates, Larry Goldings on keyboards, Dennis Irwin on bass, Bill Stewart on drums, and Don Alias on percussion. Perhaps it's the mix of the familiar rhythm section with the novelty of playing with Harris, a player with a similar penchant for inside funk, outside approaches, and altered sounds, but Scofield is unusually animated. He digs into the rhythmic grooves and develops extended ideas throughout, most notably on "I'll Take Les" and "Do Like Eddie," tributes to the onetime partnership of Harris and pianist McCann. Goldings is outstanding on piano as well as organ, and everyone involved contributes to making this a high point in contemporary soul jazz. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be a Scofield fan to love this! January 3, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I admit it -- not all of Scofield's work is to my taste -- some of it is a bit esoteric and left brained. But this CD has got to appeal to anyone who just loves a solid groove and a love of the blues. It is warm and funky and soulful, as well as intricate. If you admired Eddie Harris/Les McCann in the 1960's/70's (think "Swiss Movement"),think of this as a very contemporary update. The CD combines the Harris/McCann signature propulsive eigth note groove with some very tasty sax and guitar unisons. Add drumeister Bill Stewart's work (which I'm still vainly trying to transcribe and play) and this thing just sings. Highly recommended, even if you don't consider yourself a hardcore jazz fan or Scofield fan. This disc will make you bounce down the street for the first few weeks you listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem June 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sco is alway doing something interesting but one doesn't always like it (even if it's good - e.g. "Quiet" a few years ago). This album, however, is not only very good but also almost impossible not to like (at least given a moderate exposure to, and taste for, jazz). It's a great "gotta work in the evening album" and "friends over for dinner" too. Eddie Harris on sax is in top form - a real cooker. In short, it won't make many people's desert island lists but it belongs on most of their bookshelves. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Scofield Album May 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I can't beleive that only two people have reviewed this outstanding collection! This disk features some fine ensemble playing and great, gritty soloing by Scofield and the "Electrifying" Eddie Harris. Anyone who got onboard with latter Scofield Cd's like A-Go-Go would be well advised to check this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This cooks! June 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What totally tasty stuff! Great grooves here. Sounds like everyone was feeling good with lots of creative juices were flowing. Very good sound on this recording. Whip up some hand jive, it feels great.
