This native of Ohio and confessed admirer of Jimi Hendrix started out in 1974, still a student, in the cradle of an accidental band led by Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker. His vibrant guitar later adorned the turbulent music of the later bands of Miles Davis and that's when he was in one of the most stable phases of his life. In the last two years he's been part of this festival in good company: first, with the Medeski, Martin & Wood trio, and then with saxophone player Joe Lovano. For both occasions, Scofield played his part as the paradigm of the jazz revolution. This time around he plays with his quartet Country for Old Men, and the guitarist pays tribute to and remembers the great heroes of country and bluegrass.
