In addition to being one of the principal innovators of modern jazz guitar, John Scofield is also a creative artist of an even rarer sort: a stylistic chameleon that has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity. An artist with fan bases in many camps and forty albums to his credit, he has expressed himself with ease and enthusiasm in the vernaculars of bebop, blues, jazz-funk, organ jazz, acoustic chamber jazz, electronically tinged groove music, and orchestral ensembles. Regardless of the stylistic setting, his distinct guitar sound and compositions are unmistakably Scofieldesque, always coupled with an improvisational excellence and dedicated to the finest in jazz tradition.
