John Scofield

1951 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Jazz

Active since the 1970s and highly visible from the early 1980s onward, when he was a sideman for Miles Davis, jazz guitar great John Scofield continues to grow as an artist, producing some of his most timeless work 30 years into his career. One of the principal innovators of modern jazz, the musician, composer and arranger has crafted a distinctive sound that falls somewhere between post-bop, fusion and funk. His more than three dozen albums are testament to the stylistic chameleon's inexhaustible musical curiosity.
