Born in 1951, John discovered his passion for music at an early age. He started pursuing music education at the prestigious Berkley College of Music but apparently decided that an academic approach to music was not what he had signed up for. Consequently, he left the institute to collaborate with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker. He soon joined the band of George Duke and Billy Cobham, playing with them for almost two years. In 1976, he became a part of Gary Burton’s quartet. The following year, John Scofield released his self-titled debut album (now known as ‘East Meets West’). Apart from John himself, the album also featured Motohiko Hino on drums and Clint Houston on bass. The album garnered rave reviews and scored four out of five stars on Allmusic. Some of the tracks from the album include ‘Ida Lupino’, ‘Blues For Okinawa’ and ‘Public Domain’. In 1979, he formed a three-piece ensemble comprising Adam Nussbaum and John’s mentor Steve Swallow, which has become one of John’s signature groups. During the early eighties, John joined forces with Miles Davis, a collaboration that lasted for over three years. During this time, John worked on three of Miles’s albums, namely ‘Decoy’, ‘You’re Under Arrest’ and ‘Star People’. During the eighties, he released two more albums as a leader titled ‘Still Warm’ and ‘Electric Outlet’.
Over the years, John has produced more than thirty studio albums and four compilations albums including ‘Bump’, ‘A Go Go’, ‘I Can See Your House From Here’, ‘Meant To Be’, ‘Flat Out’, ‘Loud Jazz’ and ‘Rough House’. His most recent works ‘MSMW Live’ and ‘A Moment’s Peace’ were released in 2011. Apart from this, the artist has worked on numerous albums and projects with artists such as Metalwood, Lenny White, Jack Walrath, McCoy Tyner, Tommy Smith, Jim Pepper, Ron McClure, Gary Marks, Marc Johnson and Bill Cosby. Some of these albums include ‘The Recline’, ‘Demons In Pursuit’, ‘Sweeping Through the City’ and ‘Guardian Angels’. In 2006, John extensively toured across North America and Europe along with the trio Medeski Martin and Wood. The French Ministry of Culture made John the Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2010. He has received numerous other prestigious honors and awards over the years as well. During the Montreal International Jazz Festival of 1998, John managed to bag the ‘Miles Davis Award’. Currently, the artist is a part of the faculty of the ‘Steinhardt School of Education’, teaching in the Jazz Department of the New York University.
