Jazz at Lincoln Center
Guitar icon John Scofield is a one-of-a-kind virtuoso known for his signature blend of jazz, funk, rock, R&B, and soul. His career is as hot as it’s ever been, and he just won 2017 Grammy Awards for Best Instrumental Jazz Album and Best Improvised Jazz Solo (he also won Best Jazz Instrumental Album in 2016). Audiences in the House of Swing this weekend will experience a complete showcase of his artistic range. For these concerts, Scofield will add new insights to two of his most revered albums, exploring them for the first time since their original release. The first of these albums is 1986’s Blue Matter, one of his first releases after leaving Miles Davis’ group. This career-changing record displays Scofield’s sophisticated fusion of searing rock and blues riffs, harmonically advanced jazz vocabulary, and deep-in-the-pocket funk. We are fortunate to have original bassist Gary Grainger, pianist Jim Beard, and drummer Dennis Chambers enlisted for this show, reuniting one of the most aggressively funky rhythm sections ever assembled. The second album to be explored is 1996’s Quiet, featuring Scofield on classical nylon guitar in a moving departure from his electric guitar wizardry. Scofield will lead a sextet of reeds and horns, featuring Michael Rodriguez, Charles Pillow, John Clark, Jeffrey Scott, Roger Rosenberg, and master saxophonist Joe Lovano, alongside an all-star rhythm section of Bill Stewart and Larry Grenadier to perform this delicately lyrical repertoire. From the lush and contemplative Quiet to the raging funk of Blue Matter, this experience could only be brought to you by the man known as ‘Sco’.
