REVIEW: John Scofield Quartet @ the Shedd (Eugene, OR – 10/26/11)

29th Oct 11 (Sat) 3 comments

FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM

I showed up slightly late due; so came in right after they started their second song… and I hunkered down for some great music.  John Scofield Quartet features John on guitars, Michael Eckroth on piano, Ben Street on bass, and Gregory Hutchinson on drums.

The band played a mix of slower ballads and more upbeat tunes. John’s latest album, A Moment’s Peace, is slower and gentler, and the lead-off track “Simply Put” was the first tune I caught in the set – fantastic jazz balladry.  The quartet then moved into some covers, “Relaxin’ at Camarillo” (Charlie Parker) and “I Will” (the Beatles).  I didn’t catch the name of the tune right after “I Will,” but it was SMOKIN’

Other songs I caught during the Quartet’s long set were “My Foolish Heart,” “Hackensack” (Thelonious Monk), and “Green Tea.”  John is a phenomenal guitarist.  The show was a bit more reserved than I was going in expecting (compared to his work with Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood), but it was a treat to watch a master at work.  They wrap up their mini-West Coast tour this weekend at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley in Seattle.

UPDATE 10/29 – REVIEW POSTED

Brilliant show by the John Scofield Quartet last night at the Shedd in Eugene, Oregon…

Busy week for me at work, plus Pomplamoose tonight at the Doug Fir Lounge (Portland).  Look for the Scofield Eugene photos and a review by the weekend.

Cheers!
