In an effort to get myself a little more amped for this year’s Rochester International Jazz Festival I’ve begun raiding our library’s inventory of artists who will be appearing at this year’s festival.
My first grab was a no brainer – John Scofield’s A Go Go. This 1998 Verve release could just as easily have been tagged a Medeski Martin & Wood album. It features jazz guitar legend John Scofield on guitar, Billy Martin on drums, John Medeski on organ and Chris Wood on bass. I’ve added the title track to my Muxtape. Enjoy!
The John Scofield Trio will be preforming two sets at the festival on Sunday June 15th. Medeski Martin & Wood will be performing for free on Saturday, June 21st.
