Jazz guitarist John Scofield has built up a remarkable resume over the years, collaborating with musicians like Phil Lesh, Herbie Hancock, Medeski Martin & Wood and Miles Davis. Playing on three albums with Davis in the ’80s opened doors for the oft-experimental guitarist, while his periodic collaborations with Medeski Martin & Wood (and the members’ many side projects) over the past decade has endeared Scofield to the loyal (and lucrative) ears of jam-music fans. Scofield’s latest studio record, Piety Street, his 36th John Scofield , blends southern gospel rhythms and New Orleans blues. His latest band includes Jon Cleary, George Porter, Jr. and former Beach Boys drummer Ricky Fataar.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
