John Scofield and his trio mates- bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Bill Stewart - are aglow with camaraderie and spontaneous invention. The three throw off sparks as they bob, dip and weave through a tightly knit set of jazz standards and savvy original compositions. More than just a collection of tunes, the trio is playing music that embodies the spirit that has kept jazz vigorous and visceral since its birth.
John, Bill and Vicente have played together for the last four years in different Scofield projects and recordings. In this Trio format, they will be performing Scofield originals from the 40+ Scofield albums made through the years, some standards and covers and whatever assorted off-the-cuff improvisations that might turn up!
