Mike Gibbs with John ScofieldMike Gibbs Band At Symphony Hall – Birmingham 1991 ... CD
Dusk Fire (UK), 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A really unusual meeting of the minds – as legendary guitarist John Scofield works here with the famous British big band of Mike Gibbs – an ensemble that had been making waves for decades by the time of this recording! Gibbs was always one of the most colorful of the modern British talents at the end of the 60s – a trombonist, composer, and arranger who was always strongly aware of tone – especially the unusual moments that could arise when putting key talents together in his always-modern ensemble! The lineup here lives up to that legacy – as it also features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Tony Coe on tenor, John Taylor on piano, Chris Pyne on trombone, and Steve Swallow on bass – all players whose early work helped transform the UK scene, and who still sound great at the start of the 90s. The album's a double-length set – and titles include "Meant To Be", "Lost In Space", "Pretty Out", "Blueprint", "Science & Religion", "Fat Lip", "World Without", "Out Of The Question", and "Don't Overdo It".

John ScofieldJohn Scofield ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A pretty rare set from guitarist John Scofield – and a pretty great one too! The album was originally issued only in Japan, and it features Scofield playing with a quartet that includes Clint Houston on electric and acoustic bass, Motohiko Hino on drums, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet on a few tracks – a really nice lineup that gives the record a very different flavor than some of John's other early sessions! Scofield's in prime groove territory on the track "Public Domain" – which is a long and tight little number – and other tracks have a more open-ended feel, but are still quite strong, with a lot less of the airy quality that can sometimes characterize Scofield's other work of the time. Titles include "Ida Lupino", "Un Toco Loco Ballet", "Blues For Okinawa", and "Amy (Who Else?)". CD

John ScofieldLoud Jazz ... CD
Gramavision, 1988. Used ... $13.99
The sound is never too loud here – and John Scofield's right out in the lead on most numbers, carving out those soulfully-inflected, modern-styled licks that really characterized his sound back in the day! Scofield's emerged as more of a traditionalist in recent years, but on 80s dates like these he was really embracing the bigger sounds of the time – and has a way of mixing his guitar roots with kind of a fuzzier, more electric vibe – of the sort that the Gramavision label could do wonderfully at the time. The group is mostly a quintet, with Don Alias on percussion – and keyboards are by Robert Aries on all tracks, but George Duke steps in with some solos as well. Titles include "Signature Of Venus", "Dirty Rice", "Did It", "Loud Jazz", "Otay", "True Love", and "Igetthepicture". CD

John Scofield/Steve Swallow/Bill StewartSwallow Tales ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2020. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
An especially beautiful album from guitarist John Scofield – and one whose key strength lies in its title! The "Swallow Tales" here are all original songs by bassist Steve Swallow – many from years back, when Steve was a key member of the group of Gary Burton – but recast here in a very different light, thanks to the beautifully chromatic tone of John Scofield – a player with an equally strong sense of color as Burton, but who sets things out in a style that's uniquely his own, and which has been for decades! The mix of Scofield's guitar and Swallow's songs and basswork is wonderful – and drummer Bill Stewart knows just how and when to participate, really giving the two stringed players lots of open space, on titles that include "Portsmouth Figurations", "Falling Grace", "She Was Young", "Awful Coffee", "Eiderdown", "Hullo Bolinas", and "Radio".

✨✧ John ScofieldOut Like A Light ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful guitar work from John Scofield – awash in those warm chromatic tones that make his work from this period so great – set up in a sweet trio with Steve Swallow on electric bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums! The sound has a nice sort of focus – still some of the ethereal moments of other Scofield work of the 70s, but often a bit tighter too – grooving in ways that slightly hint at John's move towards funkier styles in the 90s, yet delivered on long tracks with plenty of open-ended playing, too. Titles include "Miss Directions", "Out Like A Light", "Holidays", "Last Week", and "Melinda". CD

George Adams, Martin Hannibal Peterson & FriendsMore Sightings ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $16.99
An unusual date from tenorist George Adams – recorded right around the same time as his legendary records with Don Pullen, but instead a more unusual partnership with the great trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson! The pairing is great – and both hornmen soar out and really get plenty of room to do their thing – in a mixture of hardbop energy and more spiritual currents, with help from John Scofield on guitar, Ron Burton on piano, Walter Schmocker on bass, and Allen Nelson on drums. The energy is maybe a bit more like some of Peterson's late 70s records than some of the Adams/Pullen material – and that quality makes the live date a nice standout in the catalog of both players. Titles include "Soul Brothers", "Do We Know Where We Are Going", "Melanie", "More Sightings", and "Don't Take Your Love From Me". CD

George Adams/Don Pullen QuartetLive At Montmartre ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... About December 20, 2020
Solidly soaring work from tenorist George Adams – recording live here with pianist Don Pullen, one of his best musical partners during the 80s! The album's got a bit more of a bite than some of the pair's studio sessions – a bit straighter overall, but recorded with a nice degree of energy, and some long tracks that really let both players open up nicely – in a combo that also features John Scofield on guitar, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The inclusion of Scofield's guitar changes up the group's sound in a nice way – adding in some more chromatic elements that really stand out – and titles include "IJ", "Flame Games", "Song Everlasting", and "Forever Lovers".

✨✧ Miles DavisSiesta ... CD
Warner, 1987. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Miles' last great albums – a soundtrack composed in conjunction with Marcus Miller, and recorded with a mix of atmospheric electronics and trumpet solos, coming off in a way that sounds far better than most of his other attempts at this style from the time. Miller plays all the other instruments in the set, apart from some occasional guest work by players that include John Scofield, Earl Klugh, Omar Hakim, and Jason Miles. Titles include "Conchita", "Lament", "Los Feliz", "Lost In Madrid", "Siesta", "Kitt's Kiss", and "Wind". CD

Miles DavisStar People ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Miles Davis in the early 80s – but still sounding pretty darn great, and somehow managing to take some of his best elements from the 70s and refine them into a slightly more focused groove! The tracks here are shorter than before – no side-long jams at all – but they definitely bristle with slight undercurrents of noise, and have some unbridled rhythms that make for a good sense of energy. Added to these are a few more (then) contemporary touches – a very slight update of Miles' older funk, but never in a slick or commercial way – and still cerebral enough to show the world that Davis wasn't selling out late in the day. Miles plays a bit of keyboards in addition to trumpet – and other players include Bill Evans on saxophones, John Scofield on guitar, Marcus Miller on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "Come Get It", "It Gets Better", "Speak", "Star People", "U N I", and "Star On Cicely". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis & Robert GlasperEverything's Beautiful ... LP
Legacy, 2016. Sealed Gatefold ... $29.99
Robert Glasper takes on the music of Miles Davis – in a set that's way more of Glasper's own than you might guess from the presentation! True, the tracks are all based around Miles Davis material from the Columbia Records vaults – but Robert really opens things up right away with his own sort of vibe, and uses the Davis elements to weave into a much larger fabric – one that incorporates a range of hip contemporary styles, in the manner of his great Black Radio projects! So while you will hear some of Miles at times – both playing and (even cooler) speaking – the real strength of the record lies in Glasper's amazing keyboards, especially Fender Rhodes, and the wonderful bass work of Derrick Hodge, whose bottom currents really make the whole thing glow with a subtle, soulful fire! And we haven't even gotten to the guests – a great lineup that rivals the sorts of folks that Robert had on the Black Radio project – as the record includes contributions from Stevie Wonder, Bilal, Phonte, Hiatus Kaiyote, Erykah Badu, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Illa J, John Scofield, Ledisi, and King. Titles include "They Can't Hold Me Down", "Ghetto Walkin", "Right On Brotha", "Milestones", "Song For Selim", "Little Church", "Violets", "Maiysha", and "Silence Is The Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan & Chet BakerCarnegie Hall Concert ... CD
CTI, 1975. Used ... $5.99
A surprisingly wonderful 70s meeting between Gerry Mulligan & Chet Baker – recorded live, with sweet electric touches from CTI – in a style that shouldn't work so well, but which really comes off great! The approach is simple – Mulligan and Baker solo in a manner that's a bit like their 50s work, but which also unfolds more than usual with backing from a group that includes Bob James on electric piano, Ron Carter on bass, John Scofield on guitar, and Harvey Mason on drums. Tracks are long, with lots of space – hanging in a beautiful balance between electric and acoustic sounds. Titles include "Line For Lyons", "Song For An Unfinished Woman", "Song For Strayhorn", "It's Sandy At The Beach", "Bernie's Tune", and "K 4 Pacific". Both volumes on one CD! CD

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". CD

✨✧ Miroslav VitousGuardian Angels ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassist Miroslav Vitous is in some really great company here – recording in Tokyo, but with a mixed group of Japanese and American players – a fantastically dynamic lineup that includes Kenny Kirkland on Fender Rhodes and piano, John Scofield on guitar, Mabumi Yamagumi on soprano sax, and George Ohtsuka on drums! Miroslav handles both acoustic and electric, and a bit of keyboards – and the record has the best vibes of his fusion-plus years – music that's stretching out past the moodier elements of his earliest work, yet not into territory that's too tight or commercial – instead always open to new ideas and angles. Scofield is obviously a perfect partner in this territory, and Yamagumi is really great too – on titles that include "Eating It Raw", "Shinkansen", "Inner Peace", "Off To Buffalo", and "His Meaning/Rising/Resolution".

✨✧ Terumasa HinoMay Dance ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly open-ended set from trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a set that's a really great balance between his freer sounds of the early 70s, and some of the warmer fusion modes he hit towards the end of the decade! Hino's working here with a trio of American players – John Scofield on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – an especially tight rhythm section that really helps the record find its groove in the absence of any piano or keyboards. Some of the best tracks have a chunky feel to them – one that's almost funky, but a bit looser overall– and Hino's trumpet is well-blown, with a mix of bold notes and softer soulful elements. Tracks are all long, and titles include "Wind Blows Your Skin", "The Wild Lady", "Big Celebration", and "Free Land". CD
