Here’s a great 5/4 track from John Scofield’s latest album, ‘Past Present’. It’s an enjoyable tune with an great groove running through it, as is typical in so many of Sco’s compositions. As the piece is in 5/4 solos are over a straightforward vamp of Gm7, leaving plenty of room both to dig in and for some more outside playing. Bill Stewart sounds especially fantastic on this one.
I’ve posted a whole lot of John Scofield recently, so from my next post it’ll be time for a change!
