A trailblazer of jazz in the '80s, a perennial poll winner, bandleader, master improviser, composer and major player in the music arena; John Scofield brings groove music to its knees on his second Verve recording, A Go Go. Accompanying the guitar great on this syncopated summit meeting are the premiere groovemeisters of the neo-funk scene, Medeski, Martin & 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.

"The nasty factor is a special thing that the guitar can do and it's something that I enjoy doing too," Scofield acknowledged. From the cosmic-earthy title track, through the infectious groover "Chank," the bent-string bite of "Hottentot" and "Boozer" and the heated slinkiness of "Southern Pacific" and "Chicken Dog," that nasty quality comes across no-holds-barred throughout A Go Go. Still firmly within the funk and groove genre, Scofield puncuates the passion with auditory rest stops; the eerie soundscapes "Kubrick" and "Deadzy," the subtle and subdued "Green Tea" and the bright, joyous "Jeep On 35."

From the sublime to the gritty, Scofield forays into the funk and groove genre with electrifying results. "I'm bringing some of the elements of my playing back into the foreground with a new '90s attitude," said Scofield. "I loved making this record. Each member of MMW is a stellar musician on his own but together, they're unbeatable."

"John Scofield owes a great deal to Medeski, Martin & Wood for the success of A Go Go. The piano/organ, bass, and drum playing trio adds a world of bouncing vibes to Scofield's inquisitive, happy guitar work here. A Go Go is an album of mostly breezy, sometimes tense, jam-based grooves. The album's charm is in its "city meets the tropics" feel. The four players create such a warm, vibrant sound that resisting the urge to tap one's feet along with the beat becomes a near impossibility." -

Recorded on 180g heavy-weight vinyl to ensure quality sound, packaged in gatefold cover, and covered by premium protective vinyl outer sleeve.

The “Play 33 1/3 LP Series” features masterpiece albums released in the '90s converted for the first time world-wide to analog Long Playing record. The album cover and package created after months of graphic work and processes by hand enhanced its excellence and to ensure the record’s superb sound quality, the German MMP, who undertook the record production of EMI Germany and Universal, utilized a heavy weight 180g vinyl LP to contain the sound. Khiov who was in charge of the planning and production of many LP miniature series took charge of the album cover production spending 6 months to create a masterpiece.

This project was highly scrutinized passing rigid testing at the factory in Germany. Even the performers themselves had not been able to put their hands on the LP version of their own albums as their home country had not produced them. The LPs produced by this project certainly have become must-have items by LP lovers all around the world.

In the age where faster and more convenient is thought to be better, the increase in demand for the retro vinyl LP worldwide is clearly attributed to the satisfaction from the sound offered by analog products impossible to be replicated by CD and digital products and the delight of touching, feeling, and possessing this masterpiece-like large artwork. Furthermore, LP records have both rarity and history that increase their value over time and serve as an attractive factor for collectors.
