5.0 out of 5 stars Sco Go, 6 Dec 2003
By 
M. de-layen Vian "M5dlv" (UK) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Bump (Audio CD)
If you like guitar orientated groove jazz with a Salvadore dali twist then sit here and drink.. However if you simply like curious or (even) innovative jazz grooves then (equally) you should sip from this cup..
Fact is that this really works. Scofield is not the 48 notes in three bars type of jazz guitarist, more the melodic, "happening" groovemeister (well at least on this album) and you have to say he is stunning here. He has a strong soul that shines through and his influences are certainly cross genre - including funk, blues and jazz elements. Bottom line is if you are an instrumentalist you will love this, if you are a "background music" enthusiast, turn the volume down and you will enjoy this. If you are a groove lover then you will snap 3 or four tracks and soak it up, but mostly if you are a guitarist (as I am - and all of the above) then you will not be able to keep this CD out of your car. Very importantly - Please ensure that you only *dont* buy this album if you are a country enthusiast...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sco's finest?, 23 Jun 2000
This review is from: Bump (Audio CD)
My favourite Scofield CD, even better than the excellent A Go Go. Back to fusion with a strong funk edge, John Scofield seems to have a strong idea about where he's going, which isn't bad for a musician that has been at the cutting edge since the eighties. John Scofield, Bill Frisell, and maybe Pat Metheny (though I have lost interest in the latter recently) are in my opinion the best around. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great artist / album - but what a shame about ......., 10 Jan 2010
This review is from: Bump (Audio CD)
.. 'Simply put'.

I cannot add a lot to the reviews above - 'Bump' is one of my favourite albums by my favourite player. As usual with Scofield you get wonderfully groovy tunes from someone who tells stories with his guitar. Some of the tracks make you want to move ('Chichon' / 'Kelpers'). 'Kilgeffen' is a haunting, hypnotic meditation that easily stores itself on the jukebox of the mind and plays after sunset .

On the Bump tour of 2000 Sco played 'Simply put' an encore (players same as 'Swinganova'), announcing it as 'the bonus track on the CD's Japanese version' Bump. Why, in 2010 'Simply' has not become available as download yet is anybody's guess .....
