John Scofield doing a little looping

I caught John Scofield at the House of Blues (L.A.) last night. It was a
nice show...he's a got a great rhythm section with him, including a rhythm
guitarist -- the same core lineup from his latest album "uberjam".....nice
fusion of jazz, funky jazz, and some electronic groove thrown in (Avi
Bortnick, the rhythm guitarist used a sampler/groove box setup) -- it all
blended well.

Anyways, John had a Boomerang in his setup, which he used sparingly, but to
good effect...he usually put some licks in there, then ran it backwards,
while he played licks over the top of it.   He open and closed the show by
fading in/out a loop.

Anwyays, if he comes your way, and your into funky jazz, I recommend
checking him out.  The backup band is worth seeing by themselves!
