NPR describes Scofield as “one of the most prolific and admired jazz musicians of his generation.” As a principal innovator of modern jazz guitar, he played alongside Miles Davis for more than three years, and his work has influenced guitar greats since the late ’70s. Scofield is a creative artist of a rare sort: a stylistic chameleon who has forged a consistent, rock-solid aesthetic identity who demonstrates fluency in bebop, blues, jazz-funk, jam band, orchestral ensembles, and various others with ease and enthusiasm.
