I've been working for the We Always Swing Jazz Series as a multimedia intern and have gotten to see a lot of great jazz acts recently. Last night I got to meet and interview John Scofield, a long time guitar hero of mine. He's a great cross-genre player - he played with Miles Davis and Charles Mingus back in the day, and I've seen him play way more jam-rock stuff too with Phil Lesh and Friends. For this show he was playing a few tunes off his new album A Moment's Peace, which is way more laid back, ballady, with tinges of psychedelia. I'm really into the funky stuff he does with Medeski, Martin, and Wood and on albums like A Go Go, but these new songs are strikingly beautiful and meditative.
