John Scofield: John Scofield
John Scofield's first ever solo guitar recording captures all the influences and idioms the guitarist has encountered throughout his career in intimate solo recitals - accompanied by his own rhythmic pulse and chordal underscoring from a looping device. In addition to jazz, John has always had a soft spot for the rock 'n' roll and country music of his youth, reflected here in rollicking interpretations of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" and Hank Williams' "You Win Again." In between elegant and personal versions of standards like "It Could Happen To You," the traditional "Danny Boy" and even Keith Jarrett's "Coral," Scofield presents his own timeless compositions - some new, some already familiar. For the guitarist, it's all about "the way you get the note out of the string and what you do with it after it's played."
