Scenes

The trio of guitarist John Stowell, bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop were first heard together on the 2001 release “Scenes” along with tenor saxophonist Rick Mandyck. Now returning as a trio under the name Scenes, they continue their exploration of free flowing yet highly melodic ensemble playing.

Their latest album, “Along The Way” is a set of all original music. Touching on burning swing with “Studio City,” haunting ballads with “Haiku” and “I Wish,” and new country with “When Jasper Grows Up,” the trio sculpts an uncompromising yet very accessible soundtrack.
