John Scofield
Country For Old Men

John Scofield - Country For Old Men

With the help of frequent collaborators – drummer Bill Stewart, organist and pianist Larry Goldings, and bassist Steve Swallow – Scofield renders twelve country tunes through the prism of vigorous modern jazz. “My idea for this record was to take country tunes and turn them into jazz ones,” Scofield explains, “Because country tunes are simple--they’re easy to reharmonize. The improvisation and group feel are essential to each track.”
