"This was a good show last week in Telluride - The Uberjam Band. Check it out if you like. Me, Avi, Andy and Adam. I didn't put the word 'stellar" in the You Tube listing! John Scofield
Over a decade ago John Scofield put together one of the best ensembles he's ever performed with, dubbed the "Uberjam Band," featuring guitarist Avi Bortnick, bassist Jesse Murphy and drummer Adam Deitch. Sco toured with the band and went on to record a 2003 follow-up with Andy Hess replacing Murphy on bass. Late last year Scofield decided to revive the project and releasedUberjam Deux this past May. The guitarist has also hit the road hard with the band for a tour that included an appearance at last week's Telluride Jazz Festival.
