You Don’t Know Me – 2012

John Scofield

 

Some beautiful yet soulful ballad playing from guitarist John Scofield

Throughout his career, guitarist John Scofield has always had his own instantly recognizable sound.

While Scofield has recorded many albums in the funkier side of jazz, he is a versatile player who is capable of making his guitar sing.

At a Ray Charles tribute concert held at the Berklee School of Music on Sept. 22, 2012, the guitarist draws out the beauty in the melody of “You Don’t Know Me,” a song long associated with Charles; Scofield is joined by electric bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bill Stewart.
