The week of podcast interviews from continues! JazzCorner is a portal for the official websites of hundreds of jazz musicians and organizations. There is a ton of great info you can get to from there, so check them out.

Guitarist John Scofield started at the top, playing Carnegie Hall for his first gig in New York – and, he notes wryly in this interview, he hasn’t played there since. Scofield, a master of many guitar styles, also has a wonderful sense of humor. producer Reese Erlich caught up with Scofield early in 2012 for a quick seven minute discussion, where John talks about starting his career off with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker, playing with Miles Davis, and his 2011 album “A Moment’s Peace”.

Rare Conversation with John Scofield and Joe Henderson: 9/3/96

Courtesy of JazzVideoGuy:

“Guitarist John Scofield and Joe Henderson met with Bret Primack for an interview that would become an article for JazzTimes magazine. Bret documented the interview on a Sony High 8 camcorder and the tapes sat in his archives for fifteen years. While transferring some content for another video, Bret discovered the lost interview, found the content quite interesting, and decided to post it here, in its entirety, even though the technical quality is not up to today’s standards.”
