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.
