Guitarist John Scofield is proud of the fact that he, like some studio-guitar players, can’t pick up a guitar and play in any style and sound like any guitar player on the planet. The truth is that Scofield can only play in the style of Scofield and can only sound like Scofield. And that’s why he has become one the guitar greats of modern jazz. Whether he’s playing bebop with stars like Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette or jazz-funk grooves with his own band, what you hear is always 100% undiluted Scofield. The same story could be written about Steve Swallow. His sound on the electric bass is so personnel that the listener only needs a few seconds to recognize his fat, buzzing lines. In the seventies Scofield and Swallow made a lot of albums together. Now, in the new millennium, they tour with the drummer of the millennium: the incredibly talented Bill Stewart. A fusion between jazz-rock and modern creative jazz.
