John Scofield - Cully 2006

This is Scofield's Ray Charles project - and possibly this concert is my favourite recording of his. I have almost a dozen of his albums but with many of them, I don't quite get in all too easily and find there to be some kind of restrain and cool about it that doesn't appeal that much to me. Not so here, this is groovy stuff, accessible, well played... a great performance!

This is one of my own modest mono-FM > minidisc captures, as far as I know, no digital-FM version has surfaced so far.

Note: the RSI live broadcast included annyoing talk by some radio guy, often continuing to talk when a new tune had started, thus this is taken from RSR 2 where possible, with additional tracks from RSI 2, which broadcast the whole concert live, except for the first track had already begun when they started broadcasting.

Cully is my favourite Jazz Festival! This year there was a fantastic concert by Ron Carter. Do you have this one too?

I'm sorry, but I can't help with Ron Carter... not sure if the show's in circulation or not, but I might have skipped it, not being that much of a fan... (of course I love the second Miles quintet, but Carter's own bands/records never did all that much for me...)

I love the CD this is drawn from, can't wait to hear it! Thanks!
