In an eclectic, electric career that's taken him from Chet Baker to Charles Mingus, Miles Davis to Mavis Staples, Medeski, Martin & Wood and Phil Lesh, John Scofield ("Sco") has defined and re-defined the funk factor in contemporary music. His sound is lyrical and pulsing, fresh and insistent. One of the most accomplished, respected and prolific guitarists on the scene today, Sco has led or co-led 40 albums and played as a sideman on more than 100 others. From straight-ahead jazz to ballads, rock to reggae, John Scofield has created a legacy of sound that's as broad and difficult to contain as the searing solos, strut and whine of his Ibanez guitar. Here's to Sco; thank you for the remarkable music you've given us. Uberjam Deux, Scofield's 40th album, finds him in an expanded quartet setting with Andy Hess (bass), Avi Botnick (rhythm guitar), Louis Cato (drums) and Adam Deitch (drums). John Medeski makes a B3 appearance on a number of tracks. This is music like no one else is making - winsome, soul-wrenching and memorable from one of our national music treasures.
