Time on My Hands
Limited vinyl LP pressing. John Scofield's guitar work has influenced jazz since the late 70's and is still going strong today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. 1990's Time On My Hands marked Scofield's first date for the Blue Note label, and it finds the ever innovative guitarist working in an air tight quartet with Joe Lovano (tenor saxophone), Charlie Haden (bass) and Jack DeJohnette (drums) and sharing production duties with Peter Erskine. From be-bop opener "Wabash III" through to hard bop closer "Farmacology," Sco's compositional and technical depth are profound and on full display to go along with a vibrant sense of melody and soul. A Blue Note essential, Time On My Hands is released here as part of the label's 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign.
