Bookmark and Share

GRAMMY-nominated guitarist and bandleader John Scofield's new album Past Present on Impulse!/Universal Music Classics, was picked by the New York Times as one of the highlights of the fall season, is Scofield's first with an update of his "elastic, swinging" (NY Times) early-90's quartet of Joe Lovano, Bill Stewart and Larry Grenadier (who steps in for Marc Johnson and the late Dennis Irwin) since the quartet released the acclaimed album's Meant To Be, Time on My Hands and What We Do on Blue Note Records. Scofield will celebrate the album release with a six-night run of shows at the venerable Blue Note club in New York City from October 13-18 (bassist Ben Street will sit in for Grenadier during this run).
