5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and inventive, 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Überjam Deux (Audio CD)
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.
