Overview

It is a rare artist that can explore more than one kind of music with true fluency, virtuosity, and sincerity. Guitarist John Scofield can, and he's proven it once again with Piety Street -- a powerful collection of Gospel renditions.

With the release of Piety Street, Scofield takes his music to a new place. "I'm just shifting the balances for this one," he says. "I've always wanted to record and tour a blues project. That's where I started as a guitarist and I'm feeling that music more than ever of late. I launched a personal search for musical inspiration beyond the standard 12 bar blues and found it in 'old time gospel' music -- the closest relative to and inspiration for the R&B that we all love."

"I've always treasured gospel but never really dug deep into it. My search led to countless songs that really move me. It's really powerful stuff. Of course, it will be gospel done my way -- all the arrangements are mine." From the Label
