John Scofield - Hand Jive 2LP (Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition)
In 1993, guitarist John Scofield teamed with elder jazz-funk pioneer and saxophone great Eddie Harris and a tremendous band featuring Larry Goldings on organ and piano, Dennis Irwin on bass, Bill Stewart on drums, and Don Alias on percussion to lay down his soul jazz opus Hand Jive. Produced by Lee Townsend, the album featured 10 groove-based Scofield originals including the irrepressible “Do Like Eddie.”
This 180g Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition, mastered by Kevin Gray and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal, marks the 1st time the full 10-track album is released on vinyl.
