John Scofield

I’ll Take Les – John Scofield

This one’s a great soul influenced track from Scofield’s 1999 release ‘Hand Jive’, featuring a sextet including the great Larry Goldings on Keys and Eddie Harris on Tenor. It’s fairly straightforward with only two sections: the A section is a vamp featuring octaves in the Keys and Bass leaving plenty of space for some of the diminished stuff Sco superimposes, while the B section is a straightforward, D dorian groove with a killer head played in unison between the Guitar and Tenor.
