JOHN SCOFIELD’S “COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN” Featuring VICENTE ARCHER, GERALD CLAYTON & BILL STEWART

April/May 2018

In Scofield’s words, “We’re going to turn “outlaw” country tunes into Jazz vehicles. Rather than go to Nashville and record with “real” country players in a country style, I’m joining forces with my jazz cronies to play the songs with our jazz approach. We improvise while keeping the integrity, character and twang of this wonderful American music. I’ve always loved Country music and am super excited to put my treatment of them into play. ” Sco and company will sculpt jazz renditions of classic tunes by George Jones, Hank WiIlliams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patti Page and even Shania Twain to name a few!
Album was released on Impulse Records (Universal) in fall 2016 and won two Grammys: Best Jazz Instrumental Album\' and \'Best Improvised Jazz Solo in the song \"I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry\"
