Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
It's no wonder that John Scofield has fit in so well with the new funk-jazz scene -- he's one of its forefathers. Since the beginning of his career in the early '70s, the acclaimed guitarist has divided his time recording mainstream jazz and funkier fare. Scofield's originality as a stylist has much to do with his familiarity with and obvious affection for rock, R&B, blues, and down-and-dirty funk. Today there's a new generation of jazz-leaning players who feel the same way. Musical categorization is less important to them than fruitful amalgamation. BUMP -- which finds the 49-year-old Scofield working with bassist Chris Wood of Medeski, Martin and Wood, members ...

It's no wonder that John Scofield has fit in so well with the new funk-jazz scene -- he's one of its forefathers. Since the beginning of his career in the early '70s, the acclaimed guitarist has divided his time recording mainstream jazz and funkier fare. Scofield's originality as a stylist has much to do with his familiarity with and obvious affection for rock, R&B, blues, and down-and-dirty funk. Today there's a new generation of jazz-leaning players who feel the same way. Musical categorization is less important to them than fruitful amalgamation. BUMP -- which finds the 49-year-old Scofield working with bassist Chris Wood of Medeski, Martin and Wood, members of Soul Coughing and Deep Banana Blackout, and other groove-intensive younger players -- explores this inclusive territory with audacious and satisfying results. "Beep Beep" is a funked-out romp complete with New Orleans grooves and sampled sounds; "Fez" slinks along on a swampy undercurrent replete with chattering percussion; "Blackout" employs a modified James Brown beat that brings out the aggressive grooveman in the leader; "Kilgeffen" drapes itself in mysterioso textures; "We Are Not Alone" mates rockish rhythms to a spare but menacing bass line; and "Swinganova" bops along to a Latin beat. The sparkling settings are always at the service of Scofield's melodically inclined improvisations and memorable themes. The listener never has to stretch to take in the leader's penetrating solos. When it comes to his work with younger players, Scofield is on a roll; BUMP, like A GO GO, his 1998 collaboration with Medeski, Martin and Wood, sounds just as it should: fresh.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
John Scofield continued to use his Verve Records contract for unusual outings -- like this one, his third release for the label, following the acoustic disc Quiet and A Go Go which featured Medeski, Martin, and Wood. On Bump, he retained bassist Chris Wood and added Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen the rhythm section from Sex Mob, keyboardist Mark De Gli Antoni from Soul Coughing, and drummer Eric Kalb and conga player Johnny Durkin from Deep Banana Blackout. Such sidemen allowed him to delve even more deeply into the second-line funk he had explored earlier in his career; indeed, "Three Sisters," the leadoff track, sounded like something Allen Toussaint might have produced for the Meters in the early '70s. The focus was always on the guitarist, and Scofield could remind you of Carlos Santana on "Swinganova" or evoke Jeff Beck on "Fez". For the most part, however, he sounded like himself back in his days with Miles Davis, though by now, his playing was less busy and more fluid.

    oh john.....

    this is easily one of the worst recordings john has ever recorded...the band is not high-caliber like all of his previous bands and the material is weak. fortunately John has almost redeemed himself with works for me and uberjam. i just caught his current uberjam band last weekend in new hamshire, and it rocked....check it out.

    The Deep Groove

    Scofield has done it again. BUMP, the follow-up to A GO GO proves to be his 2nd chapter in the groove story we know as dirty funk. If Scofield dipped his feet into the dirty groove on A GO GO, he certainly dove head first into it on BUMP. BUMP is an extension of A GO GO. The grooves are even deeper and even more explored. BUMP also brings about a lot of changes. For the first time, you can hear Scofield doing a lot of overdubbing on acoustic and electric guitars. Plus, the inclusion of keyboard samplist Mark De Gli Antoni from SOUL COUGHING adds a unique element to the groove. Along with Mark, Chris Wood from MEDESKI MARTIN AND WOOD returns to add his dirt to the sound. Also, drummer Eric Kalb and percussionist Johnny Durkin from the funk sensation DEEP BANANA BLACKOUT add their musicianship to the sound. The album also has a very nice range. From deep funk to latin nova to slow, mysterious grooves, this album is dense. Bottom line? Buy. It is an ESSENTIAL groove album. You will undoubtedly like it.
