John Scofield Uberjam Band with Dennis Chambers
Mike Stern/Randy Brecker Group
Festival Theatre
Nicolson Street, Edinburgh EH8 9FT
Friday 14th July, 8pm
John Scofield (guitar), Avi Bortnick (rhythm guitar/samplers), Andy Hess (bass), Dennis Chambers (drums)
Mike Stern (guitar), Randy Brecker (trumpet), Teymur Phell (bass), Lenny White (drums)
Two of the biggest guitar stars of jazz and fusion in a very rare and incendiary jazz guitar double bill – both with all star bands, including the legendary trumpeter, Randy Brecker and drummers, Dennis Chambers and Lenny White.
               “Scofield can make his guitar howl, plead, laugh, argue, and preach – deep passion and almost unbearable beauty” (The Scotsman). A man of many parts, a virtuoso guitarist with a genuine jazz sensibility. He worked with historic figures like Miles, Mingus, Chet Baker and created many historic groups of his own. Uberjam is his hard-groove band playing funk-oriented jazz-rock, propelled by the red-hot Dennis Chambers on drums.
Mike Stern's four-decade career featured stints with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers and Joe Henderson, before he launched a solo career that has propelled to him to a global star. 16 recordings as a leader (six nominated for GRAMMY® Awards) and thousands of high energy gigs, with many of the greats of the current scene – including this band with co-leader and fellow giant of the New York jazz and fusion scene, Randy Brecker. Two electrifying soloists whose blistering chops combine rock–blues firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies
