A treat of a trio

Jazz guitarist John Scofield has performed in Israel quite a few times over the past couple of decades. His audiences have always warmed to his playing and his geniality, whether at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in tandem with (the late) bassman Charlie Haden or at the Jerusalem Theater with his own band.

The former Miles Davis sideman has been putting out mainstream jazz and funk-laced sounds for more than 40 years now, some of which have seen him mix his musical muse with that of pianist Brad Mehldau. The two will join forces again, together with drummer Mark Guiliana, for one gig here, at the Shuni Amphitheater near Zichron Ya’acov on July 18 (doors open 7:30 p.m., show starts 9 p.m.).
