Late-September sees the release of guitarist John Scofield's latest album a quartet affair called Past Present to be released on Impulse! Decked out with new material the quartet have been gigging recently including an appearance at the Montreal Jazz Festival at the end of June. Sco and tenor sax titan Lo were students at Berklee and began to play on records together in the 1990s and were also part of the amusingly titled but very splendid ScoLoHoFo supergroup that released Oh! in 2003.
