Guitar Player is honored to team with SFJAZZ to present a very special solo engagement with John Scofield at the magnificent Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.Scofield has established himself as one of the giants of jazz guitar having worked with everyone from Mingus to Miles, and releasing myriad recordings as a bandleader. Recent Scofield releases include Piety Street, which featured a who’s who of New Orleans musicians helping Scofield interpret traditional gospel tunes, and the lofty endeavor 54, which featured Scofield backed by the Netherlands’ Metropole Orkest. Read Scofield’s January 2011 GP feature interview about playing with the Metropole here.
Changing his backdrop
dramatically is a Scofield signature. For this engagement he’s pulled a
complete about face from working with an orchestra, and instead will be backed
only by the dreamy aesthetics and natural seven-second echo of the Sacred Space
in Grace Cathedral atop historic Nob Hill. Expect to hear Scofield use that to
supreme artistic effect in the form of guitar lines that call-and-respond,
harmonize, and interact with each other at the whim of the improviser.
If you dig Scofield,
you’ve got to come to this extraordinary engagement!
