ScoLoHoFo - Oh!
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

ScoLoHoFo - Oh!An all-star jazz collective made up of guitarist John Scofield, saxophonist Joe Lovano, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Al Foster, ScoLoHoFo has its roots in Canada, where the quartet debuted in 1999 at the Montreal Jazz Festival. With equal contributions from each member, the quartet is more than just an exercise in democracy. On tracks like Scofield’s “Right About Now,” Lovano’s “New Amsterdam,” Holland’s “Faces” and Foster’s “Bittersweet,” the playing is lovingly supportive and wondrously instinctive.
