|John Scofield at home in Hudson Valley|
It is announced today that John Scofield‘s Quartet with bassist Vicente Archer, pianist Gerald Clayton & drummer Bill Stewart will be at Cadogan Hall on 19 May 2019.
This is the group which recorded the well-received album Combo 66 (Verve) earlier this year. The album consists of the guitarist’s own compositions. “I wrote all new tunes for this record, Combo 66,” Scofield has said. “I called it that because—I’m 66! And 66 is the coolest jazz number you can get because if you hit 66 you’re doing ok. Remember all the great records from the 60s? Brasil 66. Route 66. It hit me that it would be poetic to use that title.”
