John Scofield

John Scofield is one of the most important guitarists in modern jazz history. A free-handed, headstrong, tonality-proof inventor of the modern language of jazz guitar.
As a guitarist and composer, Scofield has mixed jazz and fusion, funk, blues, soul and rock into his own bag. Since the mid-1970s, this raw elegance has been at the center of jazz history, recording albums with musicians such as Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Charles Mingus, and in the early 1980s, Scofield was in Miles Davis’ band.

John Scofield is jazz history and despite passing 70, he is a vital force in the ongoing story of American music. Now he’s coming to Fasching for a solo concert!
