A Review by:
– The Dude on the Right
John Scofield is a jazz guitarist and for this CD you pretty much get lots of songs that are musicians just jammin’ away mostly highlighting the variations John puts out, but also spotlighting the keyboard jammin’ talents of John Medeski. If you’ve read some of my previous reviews, you know I appreciate jazz talents but don’t spend the time to analyze the nuances and specifics of a jazz records, and because of that, pretty much I lump this CD into the “if you are a fan of jazz guitar, you might want to give this a listen” group. For me, lots of things sounded the same from song to song, but the keyboard transitions did mix it up. This one’s a nice background music CD for me, but I’m not going out of my way to play it. I’ll give it a 65% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale.
That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
