GATEFOLD EDITION

Innovative guitarist, visionary band leader, and singular composer. John Scofield teams up with pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Vicente Archer, and drummer Bill Stewart in Combo 66, a new band that builds upon Scofield's long legacy of masterful improvisation and stylistic diversity.

Scofield won consecutive 'Best Jazz Album' Grammy Awards for Past Present (2016) and Country For Old Men (2017) - for which he also won the Grammy Award for 'Best Instrumental solo'.

Combo 66 swings effortlessly to the condor-like rhythms of drummer Bill Stewart, Scofield’s percussionist of choice since 1992’s What We Do. When it came to bass rhapsodies, Scofield chose upright bassist Vincente Archer of Robert Glasper’s Trio. And for the first-ever keyboard chair in his acoustic quartet, Scofield called upon 34-year-old organist/pianist Gerald Clayton, son of bassist John Clayton of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.
