John Scofield: Quiet

Verve Records
1996

Today's Rediscovery steps away from ECM for Quiet, an anomaly in John Scofield's career for his exclusive use of nylon-string guitar. Some gorgeous horn orchestrations, a crack trio with Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart, and a couple of guest appearances by Wayne Shorter make this a superb album well worth revisiting.

So, what are your thoughts? Do you know this record, and if so, how do you feel about it?
