“Scofield is one of the most prolific and admired jazz musicians of his generation” – NPR


Over the last four decades, the trio format has been John Scofield’s favorite mode of expression. 2024’s incarnation of the John Scofield Trio features Scofield on guitar, Vicente Archer on bass and Bill Stewart on drums. The music is intricate, personal and complex, highlighting a repertoire of Scofield compositions and jazz standards, along with material ranging from Bob Dylan to Miles Davis. 

“I love to make real jazz: improvising statements in live situations with two of my favorite musicians,” Scofield says. “It’s challenging. You don’t rely on arrangements as much as the intuitive way we play together. You rely on good playing knowing that there’s no safety net involved. We’re three musicians with a special synergy that unfolds between us. It’s impossible to judge your own work completely, but I think the trio format is always some of my best playing. We hook up as a group and it takes us to satisfying places.”

Possessor of a distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, John Scofield is a masterful composer and jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk-edged jazz, and R&B. From 1982-1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis, which placed him firmly in the foreground of jazz consciousness. Since that time, he has led his groups across the globe. John has punctuated his traditional jazz offerings throughout his career with funk-oriented electric music.

Drummer/composer Bill Stewart has performed and recorded with Pat Metheny, Maceo Parker, Larry Goldings, Joe Lovano, Charlie Haden, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, Chris Potter, Lee Konitz and others. He has also recorded several albums as a leader.

Bassist Vicente Archer has emerged as one of today’s profound new voices on the bass. He has performed with Kenny Garrett, Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, Freddie Hubbard, Marlena Shaw, Stanley Jordan, Karrin Allyson, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra w/ Wynton Marsalis, Robert Glasper, and others

Recommended for Fans of Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Robert Glasper and Miles Davis.
