JOHN SCOFIELD’S “COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN” Featuring VICENTE ARCHER, SULLIVAN FORTNER & BILL STEWART

March/April 2017

2017 will draw JOHN SCOFIELD into yet another conceptual territory, bringing his life long love of American Country music out of his toolbox to share with jazz audiences in his “Country For Old Men” project. Scofield approaches classic country melodies, recording and performing with several of his closest musical associates from the jazz community.
In Scofield’s words, “We’re going to turn “outlaw” country tunes into Jazz vehicles. Rather than go to Nashville and record with “real” country players in a country style, I’m joining forces with my jazz cronies to play the songs with our jazz approach. We improvise while keeping the integrity, character and twang of this wonderful American music. I’ve always loved Country music and am super excited to put my treatment of them into play. ” Sco and company will sculpt jazz renditions of classic tunes by George Jones, Hank WiIlliams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patti Page and even Shania Twain to name a few!
Album was released on Impulse Records (Universal) in fall 2016.
