John Scofield Plays Country Music? Yes, He Does!

I know John Scofield‘s jazz as well as his work with Medeski Martin and Wood, and was intrigued enough when I read the description of this project to attend a show at Regattabar (one of four that weekend). I am so glad I did!

Go See Girls Guns And Glory Now!

I was quite excited for the Girls Guns and Glory show at The Sinclair recently. Not only is this one of my favorite bands, but Julie Rhodes – another favorite – opened the show!
