Scofield’s Überjam Band Summer Tour 2013

The legendary John Scofield is at it once again. The jazz pioneer and world-famous composer plans to release his newest album, Überjam Deux, on July 2. Although the album has not yet been made public, Scofield himself has described the collection as “funk, Afrobeat, reggae, house music, R&B…and a lot of what’s in between.” In short, it will be what we hoped to hear from Scofield and probably more, a return to the original Überjam days while also exploring new musical avenues. Sco has expressed his excitement for the album, stating: “The initial rehearsal, when we all played together, was such a beautiful thing that I had to say, ‘OK, we can’t rehearse anymore, we have to go in the studio to capture this vibe.’”

Longtime followers of his work should be excited as well. Überjam Deux features Avi Bortnick, Andy Hess and Adam Deitch, two of whom were original collaborators on Überjam a decade ago. The group will be promoting their new work with a summer tour across the United States, making several splashes in Canada along the way. Scofield will be stopping at the High Sierra Music FestivalHalifax Jazz FestivalAll Good Music FestivalGathering of the VibesTelluride Jazz Celebration, and the String Cheese Incident’s Horning’s Hideout 2013. With an ambitious tour schedule ahead of him and snowballing enthusiasm for Überjam Deux, John Scofield may once again justify his status as a musical visionary of our time.
