First Night Boston - John Scofield's Überjam

First Night is pleased to host the first reunion show of jazz guitar master John Scofield with his legendary Überjam. 2013 will reunite this legendary band both on the road and in the studio. This group pioneered Scofield’s fusing of jazz, funk and electronic music to become one of the defining bands of his career. The original Überjam record was released in 2002 with Up All Night the following year – recordings that documented Scofield’s fruitful collaboration with guitarist/computer manipulator Avi Bortnick, drummer Adam Deitch and bassist Andy Hess.
