Aside from being one of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar, John Scofield is a creative artist of an even rarer sort: a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity. A triple Grammy award winning artist with more than 40 recordings to his credit, Scofield has expressed himself in the vernacular of bebop, blues, jazz-funk, organ jazz, acoustic chamber jazz, electronically tinged groove music, jam band style and orchestral ensembles with ease and enthusiasm. Affectionately called, Yankee go Home, Scofield’s latest project covers americana/rock hits and jazzed-out folk songs, with a few original tunes in the roots/rock/jazz vein. “I’m reconnecting with a lot of my teenaged Rock ‘n Roll roots – naturally colored by my 50 years of Jazz practices,” Scofield says. Scofield is joined by a stellar band featuring Jon Cowherd (keyboardist with Brian Blade Fellowship and Cassandra Wilson among others), Vicente Archer (string bass with Robert Glasper, Louis Hayes, and Scofield Combo 66, etc.), and drummer Josh Dion. “These guys are remarkably versatile, just as good as it gets when it comes to interactive, creative playing. We’re exploring rock, funk, country, jazz and free music and having a fantastic time doing it. I’m excited about this collaboration.”
