  • Though guitarist John Scofield eventually became best known as a purveyor of funky, jam-happy fusion, QUIET is a wonderful anomaly in his catalog. Leaving funk grooves (and even electric guitar) far behind, Scofield wields an acoustic axe here on a batch of tunes that are subtle, complex, and involving. One of the most evocative aspects of these tracks is the ghostly presence of the woodwinds and horns, which Scofield himself arranged with an able blend of warmth, ethereal atmosphere, and intriguingly knotty angularity. Having jazz titan Wayne Shorter helping out on sax doesn't hurt these tunes either, and QUIET stands out as an atypical but arresting corner of Scofield's extensive catalog.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (10/04/96, p.63) - "...Scofield's concise improvisations share the same concern for finely etched melody as his memorable compositions. Exceptional contributions by saxophonist Wayne Shorter and bassist Steve Swallow help cement this as a late-season entry for jazz record of the year." - Rating: A

Q (11/8/96, p.134) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...generally intriguing, if slightly homogeneous..."

Down Beat (11/96, p.54) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...The acoustic Scofield is a kinder, gentler musical personality than the electric one, but no less audacious. QUIET is one long, sinuous unwinding of imaginative guitar intelligence which always starts from songs that linger in the mind..."

Musician (1/97, p.83) - "...Scofield's brilliant QUIET is his first strictly on acoustic guitar, lined with inventive horn charts....Scofield's ideas about voicing are reminiscent of Bob Moses' Gramavision albums from the '80s. But somehow...translates into a voice all his own..."
