John Scofield – Hand Jive (1993)

Mr. Scofield re-inventing himself, sort of … Funky Jazz with a guitar sound always recognizable, as with all great musicians. I am not his greatetest fan but it turns out I already have a respectable number of his albums. Were is first albums more rock oriented, even a somewhat less subtle (with the hardhitter Dennis Chambers on drums), with Bill Stewart on drums it is all about being relaxed. The mix is also very transparant. Only the usual effects on Scofield’s guitar.
