John Scofield’s Ãœberjam Band: Live At Berklee
By Patrick Jarenwattananon

The eclectic electric guitarist John Scofield left Berklee College of Music about 40 years ago to perform with Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan. Since then, he’s found wide success throughout the jazz community, with Miles Davis’ band for one, and as a standard bearer of modern jazz-rock. Scofield’s 2002 album Ãœberjam merged his cutting guitar with raucous electronic-infused rhythms; Berklee welcomed him back to perform that music. The Ãœberband quartet plays as part of Boston’s citywide First Night celebration, where its leader announced that a second “Ãœber” album is on the way.
