You should get Scofield's 'That's what I say' -- a instrumental tribute to Ray Charles. Very solid album.
saw him in concert here in zurich end of last year. one of the best acts i've ever seen!!!!! absolutely rockin' those guys...
sounds like primitive variation on hancock's cantaloupe island

You're kind of comparing apples to oranges here. Cool jazz is a California subgenre that followed bebop in the 50s; prime examples include Dave Brubeck, Modern Jazz Quartet, and Miles Davis (circa "Birth of the Cool"). John Scofield is a jazz fusion master with a solid grounding in bebop, blues, and R&B. He played with Miles during his whacked-out early-80s period, and he's played with everyone from Charles Mingus to Pat Metheny to Medeski Martin & Wood. If you don't like any jazz that's been made since the 50s, you're welcome to your opinion; but dismissing it as "noodling" is just ignorant. There's a lot of bad jazz fusion out there, but this isn't an example.

Yeah MM&W are great on their own and are great backing up Scofield. A go-go is a great album if you like this track. More good stuff on the rest of the album for sure, some tracks are as mellow and some have more energy .
I thought it sounded like MM&W. And I hear the Dan sounds too. But more than anyone else, it reminds me of Jeff Beck. Surprised to see no one else thought that. I like it. Plenty.

I hear it, indeed.

Nah. This is better than nice enough. As a matter of fact, John Scofield was good enough to play in Miles Davis' band along with Branford Marsalis, Darryl Jones and other talented players in the early 80's. By the way, what is proper cool Jazz anyways? Does it always have to be from the 50's or early 60's? The correct answer is no.
I cant' tell you how many times I've seeen him open up for someone else and blow the so called "main attraction" off the stage.

Excellence all around. :clap: Max Roach would approve of the skins too, I believe.
one of the groovin'est albums in my collection. MMW is his backing band for the whole disc.

Always a smooth sexy guitar...
i must be out in left field, judging by all the comments but i think john should not share his green tea, keep that music to himself!
