John Scofield Trio featuring Steve Swallow & Bill Stewart

“…an incredibly resourceful display of devices and strategies…he just burned.” The New York Times

For over 30 years the cornerstone of Scofield’s music has been found in the John Scofield Trio. The group includes old friends and longtime  musical partners, bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bill Stewart – three great musicians hitting their stride through invention, playing tight jazz standards, and savvy original compositions. Their music embodies the spirit that has kept jazz vigorous and visceral since its birth. One of the “big three” of current jazz guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell), Scofield’s influence has been ever-present for three  decades. Possessor of a very distinctive rock-oriented sound that utilizes overdrive, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music  generally falls somewhere between post-bop, fusion, and soul jazz.

style: modern jazz
