Hi-Res Libreto Premios Grammy Awards
During the '90s, ever-changing guitarist John Scofield paired with saxophonist and fellow Berklee alum Joe Lovano, drummer Bill Stewart, and bassists Charlie Haden, Marc Johnson, and Dennis Irwin, respectively, for three highly praised albums, Time on My Hands (1990), Meant to Be (1990), and What We Do (1992). Those albums found the oft-electrified Scofield, who played with Miles Davis in the '80s, investigating songs of a more acoustic, often straight-ahead, pre-fusion jazz style. After an over 20-year break, Scofield reunited with Lovano and Stewart for 2015's Past Present. Also joining the group this time is longtime Scofield associate bassist Larry Grenadier, who replaces the late Irwin. As with the quartet's previous work, Past Present is a largely acoustic jazz album, with Scofield playing on an amped, semi-hollow-body guitar. Scofield also supplies all of the compositions on Past Present, some of which, poignantly, were inspired by his son Evan Scofield, who died from cancer at age 26 in 2013. While the music on Past Present harks back to jazz's pre-rock-influenced golden age, there's nothing retro, staid, or unadventurous about the group's performance. This is propulsive, often angular and kinetic music that touches upon low-down blues ("Slinky"), Horace Silver-esque soul-jazz ("Get Proud"), and airy, swinging post-bop ("Museum"). In that sense, it brings to mind the '70s work of Scofield contemporary Pat Martino. Barring 2003's Oh! by the supergroup ScoLoHoFo, Past Present is one of the few times Lovano has recorded with Scofield in recent years and it's invigorating to hear them together; Lovano's warm saxophone dances against the crunchy decay of Scofield's guitar. It's that burlap-on-velvet combination that gives cuts like the languid "Hangover" and the moody "Season Creep" an organic, tactile quality. There's also a gleeful, almost comedic nature to the quartet's interplay, as if the musicians are sharing an inside joke. "Chap Dance," a bright, Western-swing-meets-soul-bop cut, is clearly a somewhat cheeky nod to saxophonist Sonny Rollins' take on "I'm an Old Cowhand." However, the comedic quality sometimes takes on a nuanced, melancholic tone, as on "Mr. Puffy." A reference to Evan Scofield's appearance while undergoing chemotherapy, the song starts out sounding sad, then quickly transitions into a tougher, overtly funky midsection anchored by a guttural, low-end riff from Lovano. Ultimately, the track, as with all of Past Present, is rife with love and in-the-moment energy inspired by Scofield's past experience, but created with a hopeful eye to the future. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Hi-Res Premios 5 Sterne Fono Forum Jazz
A sus 66 años Scofield sigue sorprendiendo. Con una cincuentena de álbumes en su haber, como líder o co-líder, el guitarrista de Ohio tiene siempre cosas interesantes que exponer. En esta ocasión lo hace con un cuarteto integrado por su viejo amigo y batería Bill Stewart (¡con quien toca desde 1992!), el bajista Vincente Archer (miembro del trío de Robert Glasper) y, sobre todo, el organista y pianista Gerald Clayton. «Guitarra y teclado no siempre se avienen. A causa de su naturaleza percusiva, el piano está bastante cerca de la guitarra. Pero Gerald toca magníficamente, y pese a sonar moderno me recuerda a Hank Jones o Tommy Flanagan. Y su legato se adecúa muy bien a la guitarra.» Armado con su Ibanez AS200, John Scofield, consciente de ese potencial obstáculo, adapta sus fraseos e improvisaciones al modo de tocar de Clayton. Y del cuerpo a cuerpo surgen chispas, especialmente en temas up tempo como Willa Jean y New Waltzo. Pero el auténtico logro del disco es su manejo del swing. Un swing intemporal, como el de King of Belgium, tema que cierra este Combo 66, un homenaje al maestro belga de la armónica Toots Thielemans, hombre lleno de humanidad y dotado de un gran sentido del humor, rasgos que compartía con Scofield. «¡Si uno no se divierte con la música, mejor dejarlo! Me tomo siempre el jazz muy en serio, pero lo cierto es que para tocarlo se ha de estar muy relajado y hay que intentar pasarlo bien. Si se ensaya demasiado, no funciona. Y el humor me ayuda a entrar mejor en la música.» © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Hi-Res Libreto
A los 68 años y con más de 40 álbumes a su nombre, John Scofield firma aquí su primer disco para ECM como líder. Un álbum grabado en un solo día en Nueva York a principios de 2019 para celebrar la música de su viejo amigo y mentor Steve Swallow. El guitarrista tenía solamente 20 años y estudiaba en Berklee cuando conoció y comenzó a tocar con el bajista, once años mayor que él, iniciando una colaboración que ha continuado ininterrumpidamente desde entonces. Al versionear composiciones como Hullo Bolinas, Eiderdown, Falling Grace, Radio y también piezas menos conocidas, Sco subraya su profundo amor por la escritura de Swallow. Su complicidad es tal que estos Swallow Tales a menudo hablan con una sola voz. “A veces, cuando tocamos, es como si fuéramos una gran guitarra”, dice. Otro miembro fiel, el baterista Bill Stewart, compañero de John Scofield desde principios de los 90, completa el trío del álbum. “Lo que hace Bill es mucho más que tocar la batería. Aplica a la música su vena melódica, alimentándola con su poderoso swing.” Es ese “swing” el que le da a esta “gran guitarra” una fuerza diez veces mayor. Ni un solo tiempo muerto en esta ronda a tres, en la que encontramos tanto baladas como temas más movidos. Y por encima de todo, está el sonido de Scofield, una voz reconocible entre mil, a la que los años le han dado una pátina cada vez más cálida. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
