John Scofield Überjamwith
Avi Bortnick, Andy Hess, Dennis Chambers
Major guitarist for 40 years, John Scofield has multiplied musical projects and collaborations since the beginning (Charles Mingus, Chet Baker, Billy Cobham, Jaco Pastorius...) His impressive discography reflects a frenetic curiosity: Former student at the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, he has managed to bring together, in a unique manner, jazz, funk, rock, and blues. This peerless improviser joined Miles Davis’ band in 1982. Ever since, he has kept up with the different evolutions of jazz, and has even kicked off some of them through his experimentations with the best talents of the younger generation. A Festival stalwart, this year he returns accompanied by bassist Andy Hess, guitarist Avi Bortnick, and drummer Dennis Chambers.
