Synopsis

Amazon.com
Guitarist John Scofield combines with Pete Levin on synthesizer to make this 1984 session both very electric and eclectic. With David Sanborn on alto, Ray Anderson on trombone, and Steve Jordan on drums adding acoustic voices to the mix, the results are as thought-provoking as Scofield's titles. The rock, funk, jazz, and techno elements proliferate and combine, putting populist and outside approaches in a new perspective. There are even touches of Ennio Morricone's film music in the wide-open spaces of "Best Western." While much fusion is about the easy mismatching of elements, Scofield manages to turn his different sources into distinctive and original music. --Stuart Broomer

CD Reviews

Still one of Sco's best!
Michael J. Anderson | Corning, NY USA | 06/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Joh Scofield was an early favotite of mine from before he played with Miles. I picked up Shinola when it came out (looking for Steve Swallow stuff, actually). I really loved that. When he started playing with Miles, I was fortunate enough to see him a coulpe of times, and then later in solo form at a nice club. After that period, I have found his stuff 'hit or miss' ... but I was blown away by UberJam. However, Electric Outlet remains right at the top of my list of favorite Scofield work. It really lays out his style and preferences. Worth picking up!"
Great classic Scofield

"This is a great Scofield disc. I like John's recent funk outings, but this disc from further back in his career really outlines his jazz playing in a more fusion-like setting."
