Another week, another birthday tribute. This time to guitarist John Scofield for his birthday. Luckily, there'a a lot to draw from as Sco has collaborated with some of the very best.
In this playlist, you'll find music from his landmark sessions with Medeski Martin & Wood, his seminal work with Miles, a cut with legends George Duke & Billy Cobham, and, of course, on his own.
And because host Paul Abella, never really does just straight shows featuring a single artist, he also featured a bunch of other great guitarists who are cut from a similar cloth: Grant Green, John McLaughlin, Fareed Haque (who has another new one out on Delmark), Pat Metheny, and Larry Coryell.
Notes From The Jazz Underground runs Friday nights on WDCB 90.9 FM.
