John Scofield is one of the most respected guitarists in jazz, making a major mark in Miles Davis' band in the early 1980s. Before that, Scofield had already recorded with jazz legends Charles Mingus, Gerry Mulligan and Gary Burton. Scofield's own bands have been some of the finest anywhere, producing classic recordings such as Blue Matter and Still Warm. He has split his time over the past three decades between traditional jazz and more eclectic settings, including collaborations with the likes of Medeski, Martin & Wood, Phil Lesh and Government Mule. Tonight, he teams up with bassist Vicente Archer, pianist Larry Goldings and drummer Bill Stewart to perform music from Scofield's latest effort, Country for Old Men, which features jazz renderings of classic American country and western songs.
