The John Scofield Überjam Band featuring Andy Hess, Avi Bortnick, Tony Mason
After leading and writing for various funky bands in the 80's and recording and performing with MMW in the 90's, Scofield started the Uberjam project in 2000. Once he found super rhythm guitarist Avi Bortnick, he played with various bass and drum teams searching for the right chemistry and found it for two cdsGrammy Nominated Uberjam and Up All Night.
The Uberjam sound starts with compositions written for his lead guitar, Avi's funky rhythm guitar and sampled loops in front of electric bass and drums. The project has been reunited in 2013 for the May release of a new recording - Überjam Deux and worldwide touring.
"The music on Überjam Deux is one of the styles I feel most comfortable with. I started with jazz-rock 40 years ago and the great thing about this music is that it's still evolving. I've been interested in combining jazz with other rhythmic forms since I became involved in music. I was spurred on in this direction by my collaboration with Miles Davis among others. I'm from the fusion generation! If I were to tag a "concept" for the band, it would be exploring different forms of groove music. We get into funk, afro beat, reggae, house music, RnB....and a lot of what's in between."  I love improvising over and inside this music and doing it with some of greatest musicians playing this way today. Many of these new tunes are co-written by Avi and myself. Andy Hess's old school bass sound and tireless dedication to grooving fits perfectly with our original drummer, Adam Deitch and new additions, drummers Louis Cato and Tony Mason.
We have a great time playing for a broader and often younger audience with this material. They really know about music, they really listen, and their enjoyment is infectious. I get a real kick watching my audience grooving while knowing that this holds up as jazz  it's not just dance music." - John Scofield
