On A Go Go, guitar great John Scofield is accompanied by premiere groovemeisters of the neo-funk scene, Billy Martin, John Medeski, and Chris Wood. Together they’ve fashioned a collective groove that drives shake-that-thing funk to the core without sacrificing an ounce of satisfaction for the brain.
An organic session that hangs together on a mutual love of groove-oriented music, A Go Go stands as Scofield’s beat manifesto. "‘A Go Go’ is a phrase that reminds me of what the rock ‘n’ roll movement was when I first started checking out the music," he recalls. "Great clubs like Whiskey A Go Go and Cafe A Go Go — it’s all tied into my first cognizant thoughts about rhythm."
K. v. Seckendorf in Rolling Stone 3/98: "Rhythm & Blues,
relaxed & rockig, schön schräg & rundum cool (auf Basis
der für Scofield typischen Wärme, versteht sich)."
