Add to Calendar 2017-05-06 7:00 pm 2017-05-06 John Scofield at The Appel Room Guitar icon John Scofield is a one-of-a-kind virtuoso known for his versatility and signature blend of jazz, funk, rock, R&B, and soul. Audiences in the House of Swing this weekend will experience a complete showcase of his artistic range. For these concerts, Scofield will add new insights to two of his most revered albums, exploring them for the first time since their original release. The first of these albums is 1986's Blue Matter, one of his first releases after leaving Miles Davis' group. This career-changing record displays Scofield's sophisticated fusion of searing rock and blues riffs, harmonically advanced jazz vocabulary, and deep-in-the-pocket funk. We are fortunate to have original bassist Gary Grainger and drummer Dennis Chambers enlisted for this show, reuniting one of the most aggressively funky rhythm sections ever assembled. The second album to be explored is 1996's Quiet, featuring Scofield on classical nylon guitar in a moving departure from his electric guitar wizardry. Scofield will lead a sextet of reeds and horns alongside an all-star band of Bill Stewart, Larry Grenadier, and master saxophonist Joe Lovano to perform this delicately lyrical repertoire. From the lush and contemplative Quiet to the raging funk of Blue Matter, this experience could only be brought to you by the man known as 'Sco'.
