Scofield’s latest album, This Meets That, was released last week, on September 18. The Trio includes bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bill Stewart (the same trio that released En Route in 2004) as well as a four-part horn section (Roger Rosenberg, Jim Pugh, Lawrence Feldman and John Swana). Track number six, a cover of “The House of the Rising Sun”, features Bill Frisell on tremolo guitar. This is Scofield’s first project for Emarcy records. I don’t own a copy yet, so feel free to share your thoughts on this album (I will update this article as soon as I receive my copy). Also, check out his newly redesigned website.
Track listing: “The Low Road”, “Down D”, “Strangeness in the Night”, “Heck of a Job”, “Behind Closed Doors”, “The House of the Rising Sun”, “Shoe Dog”, “Memorette”, “Trio Blues”, “Pretty Out”, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”.
