The jazz guitar trio is a classic format, and John Scofield, Steve Swallow, and Bill Stewart are as well-equipped to venerate it and renew it a bit on Swallow Tales.
Timeless guitarist John Scofield has the biggest audience of his career creating effortless, playful jazz that swings like yesterday but appeals in the present. Joyous.
The man possesses serious chops, but he plays with a great sense of feel and sonic spacing that eludes many guitar shredders. Few guitarists can make every note count like Scofield does.
