About Überjam Deux
Guitarist John Scofield is comfortable in any setting – whether it be jazz, blues or rock – as he demonstrates on his latest recording, Überjam Deux, released July 2nd on Decca/Emarcy.
Überjam Deux has been a decade in the works, following 2002’s Grammy-nominated Überjam; not that Scofield has been inactive in the interim, far from it. There have been seven John Scofield albums in the intervening years, as well as five others on which he is a co-leader on the project. His last Decca/Emarcy release was A Moment’s Peace (2011), a luxurious album of ballads – the polar opposite of Überjam Deux. His uncanny ability to drift between various styles of music with fluency, virtuosity and sincerity is rare...
As he enters his early sixties, Scofield has reached that point in his career where he can follow his muse and still retain what's made him one of modern jazz's most influential guitarists, with the kind of lasting significance that truly speaks for itself." - John Kelman, All About Jazz
