PICK OF THE WEEK: John Scofield – Friday, April 6th – Macky Auditorium, Boulder, CO

Why You Should Go: John Scofield is widely considered to be one of the “big three” of jazz guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell) and if you catch him live just once you will understand why. His genre bending “Jazz” performances meld blues, funk, R&B and Bebop styles to create a unique sound that fans across the world are familiar with.

Scofield is just as comfortable rocking the intimate confines of the Fox Theatre or a huge stage at a jamband festival, as he is on stage at famous jazz clubs such as The Blue Note in New York or Yoshi’s in San Francisco. His recent releases include a collaboration with jam-jazz giants Medeski Martin and Wood (Out Louder), a collection of his interpretations of Ray Charles’ catalogue (That’s What I Say – John Scofield Plays the Music of Ray Charles) and a John Scofield Trio live release (EnRoute) recorded at The Blue Note in New York City.

Scofield has collaborated with artists such as Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Joe Lovano, and Bill Frisell. Long time collaborators bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bill Stewart will join him on stage at Macky.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
