Scofield is considered one of the most important guitarists and composers in jazz. His influence began in the late 1970s and is going strong today. Possessor of a distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk-edged jazz and R&B.
Known for both small and large group ensembles, Lovano stands out as one of the most successful saxophonists in jazz today. He has distinguished himself for some three decades as a prescient and path-finding force in the arena of creative music. The burly tone of multi-reedist Lovano is one of the most recognizable sounds in modern jazz.
The two shows, each 75-90 minutes long, will take place at Theater Raymond Kabbaz, which is located at 10361 W. Pico Blvd., LA 90064 (310-286-0553). Tickets are $40 for adults, $30 for students and $50 for premium seating. A no-host bar will be available.
