Now's the Time: John Scofield
John Scofield brings the funk. And because of the guitarist's strong predilection for deep grooves, I expect to encounter a full house when the Folly's jazz series continues Saturday. Rockers, jam band advocates and fusion freaks comprise Scofield's constituency. This video features Scofield in the trio setting he'll employ in Kansas City. The drummer, Bill Stewart, is the same, but Steve Swallow will be replaced by bassist Matt Penman. Joe Klopus previewed the show.
