This Meets That finds guitarist John Scofield looking both backward and forward. It's his first recording for the Emarcy label, but for the occasion Scofield resurrected the trio he'd used on several previous albums, most recently 's EnRoute : bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bill Stewart. Never one to rest on his laurels, Scofield has throughout his career applied his virtuosity to several different streams of jazz, ranging from fusion-esque to orchestral to straight bop.
This Meets That is something of a mixed bag. The opening track, the Scofield -penned "The Low Road," is a swinging funk jam that's one of several tunes on the record to employ a four-piece horn section. It's a smoker of a track, with Scofield often teasing with distortion but never straying so far away that it might be called unmelodic.
In addition to the Scofield originals, three left-field cover songs demonstrate Scofield 's ability to apply his technique and imaginative thinking to just about anything he chooses. Perhaps one shouldn't be surprised that a musician always looking to expand his reach would try Shoe Dog - John Scofield - This Meets That hand at squeezing a classic country hit into a jazz framework, but that's what Scofield does on the old Charlie Rich ballad "Behind Closed Doors.
The album-closing " I Can't Get No Satisfaction," from the Rolling Stones ' songbook, is treated much the way Otis Redding once did, as a forceful soul stomper albeit with brilliant soloingand "House of the Rising Sun," a traditional blues recorded by dozens of diverse artists, but perhaps best known from the Animals ' hit, veers far from its familiar melody as Scofield plays tag with guest guitarist Bill Frisell and Stewart and Swallow race around each other and the two stringsmen.
