John Scofield Uberjam
This year reunites modern jazz guitar master John Scofield with his legendary Uberjam Band both on the road and in the studio. This group pioneered Scofield’s fusing of jazz, funk, and electronic music to become one of the defining bands of his career. John Scofield’s guitar work has influenced jazz since the late 70’s and is going strong today. He possesses a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, falling somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. From 1982-1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis. His Davis stint placed him firmly in the foreground of jazz consciousness as a player and composer. Since that time he has prominently led his own groups in the international Jazz scene, recording over 30 albums as a leader.
