John Scofield has confirmed an extensive tour with his groove/funk outfit The John Scofield Uberjam Band. For these shows, the ensemble will feature bassist Andy Hess, guitarist/sample ace Avi Bortnick and drummer Luis Cato. The musicians recently completed work on a new studio album, Scofield’s first Uberjam recording since Up All Night. The album also features longtime Uberjam drummer Adam Detich and guest keyboardist John Medeski. Deitch is expected to tour with the band later this year when his schedule permits.
In addition to headlining appearances, the group’s summer dates include stops at festivals like High Sierra, All Good and Gathering of the Vibes, among others.
