4.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Scofield Recording, June 19, 2003
By 
This review is from: Up All Night (Audio CD)
"Up All Night" is a very fine recording. Since "Up All Night" and "Uberjam" are essentially the same line ups (John Scofield Band), it is natural to compare the two recordings. Admittedly, I think "Uberjam" is my favorite of the two recordings. When I first heard "Uberjam," it really caught my attention. As other reviewers have noted, "Uberjam" had some memorable melodies, cool musical twists, turns and textures, and tidbits of hidden treasures, such as in-and-out exchange of real drums and techno drums, interesting deep-sounding distorted bass lines and unique sound samplings. "Uberjam" was one of most exciting CD's I have purchased in recent years. When "Up All Night" was released, I was expecting something similar in energy and surprise to "Uberjam." "Up All Night" has its exciting and intense moments and is similar to "Uberjam" in its style, but as a whole it is more subdued, atmospheric and sets a certain mellow, dreamy mood. Also, some of the songs tend to meander a bit with drawn-out, repetitive rhythyms and groove beats. The songs reflect the concept of the title of the album--it is the kind of dreamy music a person would listen to if they were "Up All Night" in the wee hours of the morning.... Although not quite as eye-opening as "Uberjam," I still highly recommend "Up All Night" to any listener--it is another remarkable effort by John Scofield.
