John Scofield set to release 'Country for Old Men' at Berklee Performance Center

Bookmark and Share

One of the Big Three of his generation of jazz guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell), John Scofield is unfailingly inventive and compelling, over a broad range of material. He'll unveil the music of his new CD "Country for Old Men" (did we mention the 64-year-old's wry sense of humor?) - featuring bassist Steve Swallow, keyboardist Larry Goldings, and drummer Bill Stewart - on its day of release, at Berklee. Scofield promises an "outlaw" jazz interpretation of the likes of George Jones, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patti Page, and Shania Twain.
