JOHN STOWELL and SCENES
Master Portland guitarist John Stowell joins drummer John Bishop and bassist Jeff Johnson to create "Scenes," a freeflowing collection of eclectic, mainstream jazz originals & new standards.
Drawing on Stowell's longtime association with bassist David Friesen and the trio's involvement in the very fertile Seattle creative music scene that has included Julian Priester, Jessica Williams, Gary Peacock, Art Lande, Larry Coryell & so many more, this group creates an intelligent, elegant, modern sound for our times.
From a recent "All About Jazz" review by
Dave Nathan: “This album (Scenes) is modern, progressive jazz that engages the hearer from the outset without resorting to devices that would make the music unapproachable. - Recommended.”
