John Scofield

One of the "big three" of current jazz guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell), Scofield's influence grew in the '90s. Possessor of a very distinctive rock-oriented sound, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, fusion, and soul jazz. He started on guitar while at high school in Connecticut, and from 1970-1973 studied at Berklee School of Music and played in the Boston area. His first recording was with Gary Marks on his folk-rock-jazz album "Gathering," which was re-released in Europe in 2009. After also recording with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker at Carnegie Hall in his early twenties, Scofield became a member of the Billy Cobham-George Duke band for two years. In 1977 he recorded with Charles Mingus, and later joined the Gary Burton quartet.

In 1978 he played on Gary Marks' third album, "Thoughts of Why." His own early sessions as a band leader in the early eighties were funk-oriented. During 1982-1985 Scofield toured the world and recorded with Miles Davis. Since that time he has led his own groups, and recorded frequently as a leader for Gramavision and Blue Note, using such major players as Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, and Eddie Harris.
