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 strongest jazz tradition. An artist with fan bases in many camps and several dozen albums to his credit, he expresses himself in the vernacular of bebop, blues, jazz-funk, acoustic chamber jazz, electronically tinged groove music and orchestral ensembles with ease and enthusiasm. Since the mid-70’s, he’s led his own groups in the international Jazz scene. His versatility and technical mastery have peppered his band-leading career with sideman stints as varied Miles Davis, and the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh. Scofield’s thirty plus albums (many already classics) include collaborations with countless contemporary favorites like Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bill Frisell, Brad Mehldau, Mavis Staples, and Government Mule. He’s played and recorded with Miles Davis, Tony Williams, Jim Hall, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, among many jazz legends.
