JOHN SCOFIELD - YANKEE GO HOME

July 2021

My newest project is affectionately being called Yankee Go Home - which for me is a play on we "Yankees" taking up the music of our homeland. This band plays Roots-Rock-Jazz which is one way to define it though if I'm honest, I hate to do that! The concept is to cover Americana/Rock hits and Jazzed out folk songs plus some of my originals written in that vein. I'm reconnecting with a lot of my teenaged Rock n Roll roots - naturally colored by my 50 years of Jazz practices. The band is Jon Cowerd (keyboardist with Brian Blade Fellowship and Cassandra Wilson among others,) Vicente Archer (string bass with Robert Glasper, Louis Hayes and Scofield Combo 66 etc.) Tony Leone (drummer with Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Olabelle and Phil Lesh and Friends) and me - guitarist John Scofield. These guys are remarkably versatile, just as good as it gets when it comes to interactive, creative playing. We're exploring rock, funk, country, jazz and free music and having a fantastic time doing it. I’m excited about this collaboration. To give you an idea of where we are headed, among the songs we have been playing:
Old Man  (Neil Young)
Wichita Lineman  (Jimmy Webb)
The Creator Has A Master Plan (Pharoah Saunders)
Uncle John's Band  (Grateful Dead)
Jesus Children  (Stevie Wonder)
Somewhere  (Leonard Bernstein)
Not Fade Away  (Buddy Holly)
John Hardy ( traditional)
Fields of Gold (Sting) The Grand Tour   (George Jones)
Only Love Can Break Your Heart 
(Neil Young) Estimated Prophet  
(Grateful Dead)

PLUS SCOFIELD ORIGINALS !!!
