Hudson, a collaboration between Jack DeJohnette, Larry Grenadier, John Medeski, and John Scofield, was released on June 9, 2017.
Everyone in the group lives in and around the historic Hudson Valley, north of New York City. Inspired by the beauty and environmental fragility of the region, their album offers Scofield and DeJohnette originals, alongside inspired readings of Dylan, Hendrix, The Band, and Joni Mitchell. Jazz, rock, soul, and other influences commingle. The soloing is deep, but it’s their confluence of piano/organ, gritty electric guitar, and acoustic rhythm section that makes Hudson unique.
The album is available for purchase everywhere.
John Scofield’s latest album Country for Old Men was released September 23, 2016!
Country For Old Men is Scofield’s homage to such greats as George Jones, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, James Taylor, and Hank Williams among others. This album has Scofield playing alongside accomplished colleagues Steve Swallow, Larry Goldings and Bill Stewart, and was produced by Scofield himself. The album is available for order on iTunes and Amazon.
Here’s a short film (by Abbott Ziegler Films) from a recent session for my next record Country For Old Men. It’s the tune Bartender’s Blues (written by James Taylor!) that I first heard done by George Jones. Featured here the fantastic Steve Swallow, Larry Goldings and Bill Stewart. We’re at the Carriage House in Stamford with engineer Jay Newland and A&R man Brian Bacchus. Record out in the Fall. Touring in the Fall.
Happy to be hitting some markets in December playing duo with the great Jon Cleary. We had a great tour in Europe last April and hope you’ll join us here in the States for this limited run.
