“Scofield is one of the most prolific and admired jazz musicians of his generation” – NPR
John Scofield’s guitar work has influenced jazz since the late ’70s and is going strong today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk-edged jazz, and R&B.
After attending the Berklee College of Music, Scofield worked with the Billy Cobham-George Duke band, Charles Mingus, Gary Burton, and from 1982-85, Miles Davis. A solo artist since 1978, he has prominently led his own groups in the international jazz scene, recorded over 30 albums as a leader, and worked with the who’s who of modern jazz: Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bill Frisell, Brad Mehldau, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Dave Holland, and many more.
