I really liked the first Uberjam album and this, as the name suggests, very much continues where that left off. The band line-up has altered slightly but audibly the sound is largely similar. Musically I think the album sounds "safer", although more cohesive as a result. There are less abrupt changes of genre and the palette of effects is not quite as broad as the first album. Scofield appears to mature with every album, he's noticeably more melodic and bluesy here and there's Albert King style string bending, than I've heard him use previously. Some tracks sound quite similar to ones on Piety Street, Scofiled's gospel themed album. John Medeski appears though only in a supporting role, with minimal solo space. Avi Bortnik, on rhythm guitar and samples never lets the funk level drop and has co-written much of the material with Scofield.

In general a very stylish, accomplished feel-good album of danceable jazz/funk, with melodic soloing and occasional "freak-outs"

I confess to a non-musical prejudice with this one; the cover and title put me off for months, as do the graphics and photo layout. I have nearly all Scofield's albums and have followed him since the 70s. The Uberjam band is impeccable - the 2 drummers on this are amazing players - and there are some very good tracks, well recorded and superbly played but Uberjam seems to be more of a diversion for Sco than a direction. Nonetheless the riff on 'Boogie Stupid' is great and they are all very tight indeed. One of the best things on it is 'Curtis Knew' after Curtis Mayfield and in his groove; you cannot write a tune like this without knowledge of Mayfield's music and a lot of experience. Scofield and Medeski (yes, he's here again) can almost knock this sort of thing out in their sleep now though. The album repays the replays and is a lot better than I initially thought - I don't hear any other guitarists doing this stuff in this way.

It's gratifying that although now over 60 John Scofield manages to create new music and new sounds in nearly every album. It sounds as though on this album Scofield has been able to concentrate on playing across a range of styles with some of the guitar work and the programming left in the capable hands of Avi Bortnick whilst Scofield gets to demonstrate a range of guitar techniques that haven't appeared on his albums for some time. There is a definite leaning towards blues stylings. It's also fascinating to listen to John Medeski weave his way in and out of tracks 2,4.6.10 and 11 without being in any way intrusive, and of my current favourite tracks it's three of those with Medeski that are my favourites; "Boogie Stupid", "Dub Dub" and "Curtis knew". Andy Hess plays bass on all the tracks, and there are two drummers who share the stick work, Adam Deitch and Louis Cato, but it's the guitar work that makes this album such a welcome addition to the huge body of work that Schofield has created during his career, and for me the reference to the Uberjam album could be a false alarm as to what is contained in this excellent set.

Not only is this a must for all Scofield AND jazz funk fans, but I reckon that it's his best CD (in the world) ever. Playing it joyously loud at least once a day!!! B..B..Buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was rather disappoiunted when I first heard this.
Rather weak by Scofield's standards and no where near as enjoyable as Überjam.

This album was one of those rare occasions when Spotify got it right.

What a great album. Uplifting. Mature. Funky. Bluesy. Great fun.
