A Moment's Peace

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Guitarist John Scofield employs a deliberate theme on every album he releases. On his previous disc, Piety Street, it was grooving gospel. A Moment's Peace showcases the guitarist's softer side--with his knotty persona firmly intact. It's a collection of ballads comprised of original material ("Already September" and "Simply Put") to jazz standards ("I Loves You Porgy" and "You Don't Know What Love Is"), each played with his signature phrasing and woven through with elements of soul-jazz, post-bop, subtle funk, and even country, despite the laid-back feel. Scofield's sidemen this time out include drummer Brian Blade, organist Larry Goldings, and bassist Scott Colley. ~ Thom Jureik
