GP Presents John Scofield This Thursday, April 14, in San Francisco – Win Tickets!
'Guitar Player' welcomes the jazz guru to the City by the Bay for an Easter Weekend run of shows at SFJAZZ starting with a solo guitar performance on Thursday.
John Scofield has seemingly done it all, but the jazz guitar master who has worked with everyone from Miles Davis to John Medeski has never released a studio album of strictly solo guitar songs until now.
Guitar Player is proud to help Scofield unveil material from his six-string soliloquy, both online and in person.
Scofield will perform songs from his new self-titled album (opens in new tab) scheduled to drop May 6 via ECM records when he takes the SFJAZZ stage alone for the first night of a residency happening Easter Weekend.
Guitar Player Presents will be on site Thursday, April 14th, to welcome players and player lovers with free magazines and strings graciously provided by Martin.
Scofield will then play another four shows over the course of the holiday weekend in duo and quartet configurations culminating with a pair of performances on Easter Sunday.
Read GP’s story heralding the new album including informative quotes from Scofield and accompanied by the lead single “Honest I Do” here.
Guitar Player Presents and SFJAZZ have teamed up to promote some unforgettable Scofield performances in the past including double bill of deep fusion grooves with Lettuce just before the pandemic hit, and another put on by SFJAZZ on location at the magnificent Grace Cathedral back in 2011.
That Sacred Space concert was one of the most unforgettable solo guitar performances this editor has ever witnessed.
With a brand-new solo guitar album about to drop, Scofield is surely poised to take us to another heavenly place when he graces Miner Auditorium at the state-of-the-art SFJAZZ Center, right in the heart of San Francisco on Thursday.
