John Scofield

John Scofield


Throughout his days as a guitarist with Jazz-Funk pioneer Billy Cobham, his 1980s Fusion classics with Miles Davis, and his later solo career, John Scofield has developed an extremely individual sound, bolstered by many top-notch sidemen. He's simplified his style over the years, opting for a bluesy, funkier vibe compared to his earlier, more complex songwriting. While many guitarists express themselves with endless streams of eighth notes, Scofield makes his mark by expertly finding the notes that carry over from chord to chord -- though to be fair, Scofield can blaze a fast Bebop run with unbelievable ease. His distinct, behind-the-beat rhythmic phrasing, trademark chorus, and semi-hollowbody sound have influenced thousands of guitarists.
