John Scofield, Mark-Anthony Turnage, 11 February 2006

John Scofield Trio, Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Scorched
Joe Lovano (saxophone) - A Man Descending
Barbican, London
Saturday, 11 February 2006

This was the first outing with a new cassette recorder and I learnt the hard way how easy it was to press some of the buttons uninitentionally. A Man Descending was accidentally recorded at double-play i.e. half speed. Mishaps with the pause button meant I lost most of the John Scofield Trio performance in the first half of the programme, along with one or two movements at the start of Scorched. But I hope it is better than nothing. Comparisons with the Deutsche Grammophon release of 2002 will show how the piece has evolved during the intervening period.
