John Scofield quartet "Yankee Go Home"

John Scofield quartet

Line-up : John Scofield (guitar), Jon Cowerd (keyboard) Vicente Archer (string bass) et Tony Leone (drums).

Qu'est ce qui peut bien faire que le guitariste John Scofield soit une voix unique dans le jazz d'aujourd'hui? Personne d'autre que lui n'a su élaborer une telle synthèse du blues et du jazz. Passionné de musique noire, fana de Jimi Hendrix, il arrive en 1983 dans l'orchestre de Miles Davis. Après son passage chez Miles, il devient un guitariste majeur dans l'histoire du jazz. C'est sur scène que sa musique prend sa réelle dimension, chargée d'un feeling bluesy qui touche au cœur !

Biographie

My newest project is affectionately being called Yankee Go Home - which for me is a play on we "Yankees" taking up the music of our homeland. This band plays Roots-Rock-Jazz which is one way to define it though if I'm honest, I hate to do that! The concept is to cover Americana/Rock hits and Jazzed out folk songs plus some of my originals written in that vein. I'm reconnecting with a lot of my teenaged Rock n Roll roots - naturally colored by my 50 years of Jazz practices. The band is Jon Cowerd (keyboardist with Brian Blade Fellowship and Cassandra Wilson among others,) Vicente Archer (string bass with Robert Glasper, Louis Hayes and Scofield Combo 66 etc.) Tony Leone (drummer with Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Olabelle and Phil Lesh and Friends) and me - guitarist John Scofield. These guys are remarkably versatile, just as good as it gets when it comes to interactive, creative playing. We're exploring rock, funk, country, jazz and free music and having a fantastic time doing it. I'm excited about this collaboration. John Scofield
