    John Scofield Performs Quiet And Loud Jazz


    Hear the radio episode:



    When we started to play, I did kind of get chills from the songs . - John Scofield

    Almost exactly 30 years ago, guitarist John Scofield recorded an album he evocatively titled Loud Jazz. Not quite a decade later, he made one called Quiet. Both albums were statements of intent, widely embraced and justly acclaimed. And despite the obvious differences between the two, both were genuine expressions of Scofield's musical personality, which has always been more flexible than those extreme dynamic markings would seem to suggest.

    Jazz Night In America caught up with Scofield this past spring, just before he played a concert called Quiet And Loud Jazz in Jazz at Lincoln Center's Appel Room. The idea was to both acknowledge and bridge the distance between the two disparate albums, which might have been more difficult were it not for Scofield's sly consistency. It's not like other famous jazz musicians, where their style changes, you know, decade to decade, says Jim Beard, the veteran keyboardist on hand for the Loud Jazz half of the concert. He sounds very similar to what he sounded like, you know, 30 years ago. I don't think he sounds that different. And it's just such a strong personal style that that's amazing.

    Medeski, Scofield, Martin _ Wood - Estival Jazz Lugano 2007 FullHD1080p 3D


    Genre : jazz, post-bop, fusion
    Duration : 1:16:08
    Starring : John Medeski, John Scofield, Billy Martin, Chris Wood in 3D (Optional)
    Description: New York band Medeski Martin _ Wood is headed in a new direction of improvised music, fully developed only in the mid 90_s - the movement of so-called jam bands. For adequate translation of the term we should stop at the option of _jam bands._ Jam bands are working on a thin, formerly almost imperceptible line between jazz, soul, club music, funk and rock music. The fact that they play - certainly improvised music (often much more spontaneous than mainstream jazz) elastic at the same time, almost dance ripple from the 80_s funk and old organ soul jazz 60s (what in modern practice is called succinct - and, again, badly translated - catchword groove) and significantly bluesy tone.

    John Medeski
    Country: United States
    Genre: Jazz
    Bands: «Medeski Martin _ Wood»
    Collaboration: Zorn, John
    Medeski, John (John Medeski) - American jazz keyboardist and composer. Having received a classical music education, became interested in musical directions such as funk and jazz, and in 1991 formed a very popular and respected jazz trio now Medeski Martin _ Wood. As a session musician has been involved with T-Bone Burnet (T-Bone Burnett), KD Lang, John Scofield (John Scofield), Iggy Pop (Iggy Pop), Macey Parker (Maceo Parker), The Blind Boys of Alabama and others.

    John Scofield
    Country: United States
    Genre: Jazz
    Style: contemporary jazz, post-bop, fusion
    Instrument: Guitar
    Recording Company: Gramavision (8), Blue Note (6), Enja (4), Verve (2), Polygram International (2), Capitol (2), CPP (2)
    Guitarist John Scofield has gained notoriety by playing for many years in a variety of jazz styles. He, along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell is one of the representatives of the _big three_ of current jazz guitarists. The owner of very characteristic-based rock music sound that is often heard from distorshenom, Scofield - a first-class jazz improviser whose music is often found between the post-bopom, fusion and soul-jazz.

    Billy Martin
    Genre: Jazz, Funk
    Instrument: Drums
    Irrepressible jazz drummer, percussionist virtuoso avant-garde artist and lover of strange instruments, Billy Martin came onto the music scene in the early _80s. There are few drummers with such a relaxed African-American style of play (with the rhythms of Brazilian samba Martin manages not worse). List of teams with which he played Martin, is impressive in size, and the quality of Bob Moses (Bob Moses), Ned Rothenberg (Ned Rothenberg), John Scofield (John Scofield), John Zorn (John Zorn), The Lounge Lizards, and many others . However, the more he is best known as the drummer prolific fusion-funk trio Medeski, Martin _ Wood: Billy Martin is working with keyboardist John Medeski and bassist Chris Wood in 1991.

    Chris Wood
    Country: CA
    Genre: Jazz
    Style: contemporary jazz, post-bop, fusion
    Instrument: Bass guitar
    Virtuoso playing the bass guitar and double bass.

    John Scofield - Some of the Greatest Double Time Lines I know


    John Scofield is one of my favorite jazz-guitarists. In fact, he gets away with using an effect I don't like and I still love his playing!

    This video is on probably my favorite John Scofield solo: Milestones of the Joe Henderson album So Near, So Far (which is anyway a fantastic album).

    Milestones is a very difficult chord progression to solo on, but John Scofield really nails it with a lot of different approaches, pentatonics, and reharmonizations.

    My Lesson on Joe Henderson:

    John Scofield On A Blues - This Is Why He Is Great


    John Scofield is one of the most important artists in Jazz for the last 40 years. Few artists can claim to have worked with such an amazing row of musicians and Scofields ability to come up with new and fantastic projects is amazing.

    In this John Scofield I am going to take a look at some phrases from a solo off the I Can See Your House From Here album that was a collaboration with Pat Metheny. An album that features Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart. who would later form the Scofield Trio for a few albums.

    The song is You Speak My Language which is a Bb Blues and I am going to analyze three phrases from the solo and talk about some of the things that are typical for John Scofield Licks

    John Scofield @ Padova Jazz Festival 2018 - Icons at the fair


    Padova Jazz Festival 2018
    Teatro MPX - 27 ottobre 2018
    Icons at the fair

    JOHN SCOFIELD: chitarra
    GERALD CLAYTON: organo e piano
    BILL STEWART: batteria

    John Scofield (nato in Ohio nel 1951), dopo un apprendistato nei gruppi di Gerry Mulligan con Chet Baker, Billy Cobham & George Duke, Charles Mingus, Gary Burton e David Liebman, nel 1982 entra a far parte della band di Miles Davis. Sono anni in cui andava ancora forte il jazz-rock, al quale Scofield diede un personale contributo, prendendo parte ad alcuni dei gruppi fondamentali del genere. A lanciare definitivamente la sua inarrestabile ascesa in qualità di leader, oltre al triennio trascorso al fianco di Miles Davis, furono i dischi che la Blue Note iniziò a produrgli dal 1990. Da allora la sua carriera non ha conosciuto momenti di arresto, mentre tra le collaborazioni successive spiccano il vertice chitarristico con Pat Metheny e il duraturo sodalizio iniziato nel 1998 con il trio Medeski Martin & Wood (li si è ascoltati a Padova Jazz nel 2014).

    Scofield è uno dei chitarristi jazz più influenti degli ultimi quattro decenni, ferratissimo solista post-bop da sempre aperto alle seduzioni della fusion, il funky, il soul jazz. E la sua nuova band, Combo 66, è appunto un versatile strumento per muoversi liberamente in territori stilistici aperti.
