John Scofield – Past Present

“This record is past and present,” John Scofield says, “on different levels. First of all, this is this group that played together in the past and here we are in the present. That’s one thing. We’re still here. We come from the past, but we’re in the present. Also, jazz music–and all good music–has roots in the past. What is the past and what is the present? I start to think that time has less meaning as I get older. There is a Faulkner quote about that (from Requiem for a Nun), that ‘the past is never dead. It’s not even past.’”
