John Scofield & Chank

At the North Sea Jazz Festival (1997).

John Scofield (guitar), John Medeski (keyboards), Chris Wood (bass), Billy Martin (drums). The comments on Youtube crack me up: “steve jobs plays some sick guitar” Then, “Russell Crowe plays some sick drums” and “Woody Harrelson plays some sick B3” Wise guys.

I love this kind of extended funk vamp. This is a smoking combo, but I don’t really know any of them except Scofield. Jazz in the 90s is mostly an unknown continent for me. I’m going to have to look for more of their collaborative efforts.

    they remind me of a late-night talk show band. Fun to watch–they are so into it.

    Thanks, Ms. Liz! In fact, I do like late-night talk show bands, and a whole lot better than the late-night talk shows!
