GRAMMY-nominated guitarist and bandleader John Scofield will release his new album Past Present on September 25th via Impulse!/Universal Music Classics. The album, 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).

'Get Proud' from John Scofield's Past Present is featured   on the next   Jazz America on Voice of America. Voice of America provides programming for broadcast on radio, TV, and the Internet outside of the U.S., in English and some foreign languages.
