Editorial Reviews

John Scofield is an artist who is almost impossible to pigeonhole. Such is his mastery of the guitar that he is comfortable in any setting whether it be jazz, blues, rock or just about any other genre; including some genres, as he demonstrates on his latest EmArcy release, Uberjam Deux, which have yet to be defined.

Uberjam Deux, has been a decade in the gestation, following in direct line of descent from 2002s Grammy nominated Uberjam; not that Scofield has been inactive in the interim, far from it. There have been seven John Scofield albums in the intervening years, as well as five others on which he is a co-leader on the project. His last Emarcy release was A Moments Peace (2011), a luxurious album of ballads ¬ the polar opposite of Uberjam Deux. Its rare for an artist to be able to play more than one style of music with true fluency, virtuosity and sincerity John Scofield is one such artist.

Those who loved the original Uberjam will not be disappointed by Uberjam Deux and yet Scofields new album is arguably even more of its time than his earlier record. According to Sco, We used all kinds of different grooves for this record, but they are all basically dance grooves. Some might say they are from the African diaspora; theres Rhythm and Blues, Afro-beat, reggae and house, but whatever they are they are all funky. We used all these amazing world-grooves to blow over. Certain songs have been evolving over the ten years since Uberjam; Avi Bortnick had been working on some of these groove ideas and we took them and developed them into what you hear on our new record.

"Überjam Deux" is an eclectic journey into improvisational rock. Having played with Medeski Martin & Wood and Phil Lesh & Friends, John Scofield has stretched-out with the giants of the jam world. Naturally, Scofield improvises all the time but this is his self-appointed jam project. As would be expected, 'Dub Dub' is reggae. It features keyboard work by John Medeski who plays a supportive role on this album. 'Cracked Ice' turns the funk factor all the way up. As with its predecessor, this project is also infused with some electronica. Specifically, 'Endless Summer' and 'Torero' use electronic drums, synthetic sounding keyboards and tripped out base lines that allude to technotronic jambands like the Disco Biscuits. On top of it, 'Torero' even sounds a bit like a remixed version of Thelonius Monk's 'Bemsha Swing.' In contrast, 'Al Green Song' is pure soul and 'Snake Dance' is played with an afrobeat groove. 'I Just Don't Want To Be Lonely' will make anybody's head bop with a giant smile. All in all, this disc makes for one fun listen. John Scofield's guitar work is in as fine a form as ever. Like sonic sunshine, his signature sound is all over this puppy. As with most studio jam music, there is a sense that this material might sound better live.Read more ›

The original Uberjam recording was unlike any "Jazz" guitar recording I'd ever heard before. I was floored by it's originality. Uberjam Deux actually holds up better if taken on it's own terms without comparison to the original. Though there are similarities, Deux is more streamlined, though not without it's techno/sample flourishes. The grooves are diverse, i.e. R&B, Reggae, Dub, West African, even a Latin flavor on the somewhat techno "Torero", which features perhaps the best guitar solo on the CD. Despite the diverse grooves, Deux is ironically more accessible than the original Uberjam, and it's the pop/jam band feel of some of the tunes that may put off some Jazz fans who were expecting something more complex (though this isn't "light"). These are songs that will appeal to a wider audience, and once I accepted them on their own terms, I realized just how enjoyable this release is. It's a fun summer release, and well worth the listen. Personal favs: "Cracked Ice", "Endless Summer", "Al Green Song", "Torero", "Snake Dance".

After 10 years Scofield come back with his project Uberjam. I prefer this one to the first one. This is more fresh, natural, less electronic and more direct. After one of his masterwork "A moment of Peace" this is a collection of different dances grooves very nice for the summer. Definitely is a funky record, but very simple, with some rock touch, In the first one I think Scofield try to capture the last Miles atmosphere , here only want to have fun, don't matter if is reggae, funk or even rock. He play fantastic and the group is his mood. Avi Bornick on guitar, Andy Hess on bass, Adam Deitch and Louis Locato on drums and the very special guest John Medeski on keyboards, play like in a private session. I know that is not a super album, but since a buy I hear it more and more. Is not a deep album, is music only for pleasure. Better than the first Uberjam CD, this one is pure energy. And in this particular moments I need this kind of music. Fresh funky music, not only for jazz lovers is for anyone to love music.

Scofield has done almost everything one can do with a guitar (rock, jazz rock fusion, free / improv, straight ahead jazz, funk, rhythm & blues, techno influenced stuff, etc.) and, as usual, with his latest cd, it's a personal work that has Sco's signature all over (not to mention the strong influence of that hardly popular music: jazz ). His command over the guitar , his soloing and his composing never really abandon his jazz roots, and yes, rock too (even including a great reggae track). I was afraid i was not going to get into the 'younger generation' vibe this cd has, but i found i liked it a lot. All tracks are melodic, with great hooks AND extraordinary playing /solos. Great job Sco! Recommended.

Format: Audio CD
John Scofield,former guitarist with Miles Davis,has emerged as one of the most eclectic and prolific musicians of the past thirty years or so. As a solo artist, he maintains a consistently released body of work that...sadly I have greatly under- explored. First heard him on his 1998 album A Go Go which..of course belonged to my father. On this album Scofield is teamed with rhythm guitarist Avi Bortnick,who also provides samples,bassist Andy Hess,drummers Adam Deitch and Louis Cato as well as non other than organist John Medeski,a veteran of the jam band funk/rock revival of the 90's in Medeski,Martin & Wood,also on Wurlitzer and Mellotron. So this is an album where what I heard about it,especially it being a decade in the making follow up of sorts,peaked my interest so...this is my very first purchase of a new John Scofield album. I have absolutely no regrets.

"Camelus","Cracked Ice","Scotown" and the wonderfully melodic closer "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely" are wonderfully living and funky grooves-with Bortnicks perfect JB styled guitar complimenting Scofield's trademark soloing that's of course so deeply rooted in the blues. "Boogie Stupid" takes the tempo even faster on another terrific funk number. "Endless Summer" on the other hand is probably my favorite here. The grooves the musicians get are extremely tight and grooving at times,others colorfully flamboyant. The use of heavily sampled electronics/synthesizers make this a rather unique blend of like band jazz/funk with modern day dance/electronic. Very innovative.
