John Scofield On A Blues - This Is Why He Is Great
John Scofield is one of the most important artists in jazz for the last 40 years!! Few artists can claim to have worked with such an amazing row of musicians, and his ability to come up with new and fantastic projects is amazing!!
In this video I am going to take a look at some phrases from a solo off the "I Can See Your House From Here" album that was a collaboration with Pat Metheny. An album that features Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart, who would later form the Scofield Trio for a few albums.
The song is "You Speak My Language" which is a Bb Blues. I am going to analyze three phrases from the solo and talk about some of the things that are typical for John Scofield licks!!
