Grammy-winning guitarist John Scofield has announced he will release his newest album Combo 66 via Verve Records on September 28, the same day as the jazz veteran's 66h birthday. The new record follows up Scofield's two previous Grammy-winning efforts, 2015's Past Present and 2016's Country For Old Men, and features a band comprised of drummer Bill Stewart, bassist Vincente Archer and pianist/organist Gerald Clayton. "I wrote all new tunes for this record, _Combo 66_" Scofield says in a press release about the dynamic new album. "I called it that because I'm 66! And 66 is the coolest jazz number you can get because if you hit 66 you're doing ok. Remember all the great records from the 60s? Brasil 66. ‘Route 66.' It hit me that it would be poetic to use that title."
