Guitarist John Scofield’s funky, soulful sound is immediately recognizable—the hallmark of a true jazz master. A bona fide six-string hero and masterful improviser, Scofield has covered a wide spectrum of musical styles with rare authority over the last four decades of his celebrated career. His legendary Überjam Band pioneered Scofield’s fusion of jazz, funk and electronic music to become one of the defining groups of his career. The group reunited in 2013 to record Uberjam Deux, and hit the road. For this exclusive performance at Mondavi, “Sco” and bandmates Andy Hess, Avi Bortnick and Tony Mason meet up with the wizards behind the Joshua Light Show for an explosive, mind-bending combination of psychedelic visual effects and profound grooves.
