JOHN SCOFIELD – jazz guitar @ Wine, Jazz & World FETE
Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
SORRY, SCOFIELD’S SHOW IS SOLD OUT. HOWEVER, THERE’S LOTS MORE TO EXPERIENCE AT THE WINE, JAZZ & WORLD FETE!
One of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar, John Scofield is a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity. Looking to commemorate his 66th year, Scofield penned 12 original compositions and formed a swinging new group to record and tour the music. Rising star Gerald Clayton was an obvious choice on piano, an instrument central to the new tunes. The connection between Scofield and drummer Bill Stewart strengthens as the decades pass. It was Stewart who introduced bassist Vicente Archer to the project, having worked with him on a Nicholas Payton recording. Scofield is thrilled with the group and in addition to the musical combustion, especially enjoys the inter-generational quality – with musicians in their sixties, fifties, forties and thirties represented. Scofield will tour with the following group through 2019. His most recent Verve recording, COMBO 66, was released in late 2018.
