Legendary guitarist John Scofield’s clawing electric guitar sound is immediately recognizable, and he’s given to spiking an extended funk jam with wet, rock-ish riffs — but he swings with the baddest of them. He performs with his new group, Combo 66, which features pianist Gerald Clayton, among the most well-rounded and personable players of his generation.
