Recorded at Long View Studios in rural Massachusetts, Up All Night is guitar legend John Scofield’s second recording with his exceptional touring band, featuring rhythm guitarist Avi Bortnick, drummer Adam Deitch, and new bassist Andy Hess. Like its predecessor, the GRAMMY®-nominated überjam, Up All Night demonstrates the profound musical chemistry between musicians who gig together night after night. Most of the album’s eleven songs were composed, honed, and road-tested during the band’s 2002 tour. Rooted deeply in jazz and instrumental improvisation, Up All Night is dense with sonic color and texture as the band continues its ceaseless quest to move the music forward. Weaving through funk, r&b, electronic, blues, and rock, they follow and expand each other’s musical ideas, never losing the groove.
