"Slinky," an All About Jazz exclusive from guitarist John Scofield, recorded live in Cali, Columbia on September 11, 2011, and featured as part of our extensive Scofield coverage surrounding the North American release of A Moment's Peace (EmArcy) on September 27, 2011. A different version of "Slinky" can be seen on Scofield's 2010 DVD, New Morning: The Paris Concert (Inaukustik), which also features the same New Jazz Quartet, with pianist Michael Eckroth, bassist Ben Street and drummer Bill Stewart. Recorded by Pablo Ben Surman.

I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
