Jack dejohnette new directions in europe - Newvelle Records: A New, All-Vinyl Jazz Label | The.

Country For Old Men is Scofield’s homage to such greats as George Jones, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, James Taylor, and Hank Williams among others. This album has Scofield playing alongside accomplished colleagues Steve Swallow, Larry Goldings and Bill Stewart, and was produced by Scofield himself. The album is available for order on  iTunes  and  Amazon .

On March 10, as part of the Annual Members’ Show Salon Style , Byrdcliffe’s Fourth Annual Open Mic Night will give member artists and other residents of the Hudson Valley community the opportunity to flaunt their talents beyond the visual. Singers, poets, banjo-players, comedians, story-tellers, actors, pontificators, and variants thereof are invited to take the mic. The Kleinert/James’ historic Steinway B will be rolled out for any who’d like to play. Participation is limited to 15 performers. Admission is free and open to the public.

The title track here is a blues-bending, electronics-throbbing four-way improv; Scofield’s Latin-bopper El Swing is like a mix of Chick Corea and Steely Dan; Dylan’s Lay Lady Lay becomes a blues-reggae sway; Scofield’s arching long sounds gently caress Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock; the Band’s Up on Cripple Creek is a down-home, jangling-piano rocker. The group’s slightly clunky Native American chanting might have been better replaced by sampled field-recordings with instrumental decoration, but this is an elite jazz outfit collectively telling a compelling new story.
