Scofield, John

Guitarist John Scofield returns to the Blue Note nine months after the release of his newest CD, This Meets That, released September 18, 2007 on Emarcy Records. At the Blue Note, Scofield will feature his trio of Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart along with hornmen Frank Vacin, Phil Grenadier, and Tom Olin. The parts, arranged by Scofield himself, give the music a broader harmonic dimension. "When I compose a tune," he explains, "I often hear more parts than I end up playing on the guitar, so on this record I added the horns.
