John Scofield's name belongs to the list of best jazz guitarists of his generation. Connoisseurs will mention his name in the same breath as other virtuosos like Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell. The versatile American has a very distinctive sound and is further known for his phenomenal improvisation technique. During his impressive career, Scofield has shared the stage with jazz greats like Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and Chet Baker. Since the end of the seventies, the 59-year-old guitarist has mainly led his own formations and recorded over thirty albums. Scofield recently returned to his straight-ahead jazz roots and will perform a completely acoustic set at The Shedd Institute's Jaqua Concert Hall with Michael Eckroth (piano), Ben Street (bass) and Greg Hutchinson (drums). An absolute must see for fans of a pure, organic sound.
