Oval Lawn Series: The John Scofield Trio

Ever since joining the Miles Davis Band in 1982, Grammy-nominated guitarist and composer John Scofield has been blazing a path across genres from straight ahead jazz to funk, and gospel to R&B. His most recent release, Piety Street (EmArcy) is a collection of “old time Gospel” tunes done Scofield-style. Joining Scofield are long-time collaborators Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart.
