    All songs written by John Scofield.
    Electric guitarist John Scofield has excelled in a variety of jazz contexts, from crackling funk to moody avant-garde, both on his own and under leaders Miles Davis, Gary Burton, and Billy Cobham. An inspired session from the early 1990s, GRACE UNDER PRESSURE is a "summit meeting" of significant jazz talents. Scofield's cohorts here include the outstanding jazz guitar innovator Bill Frisell, acoustic bass legend Charlie Haden, and drummer Joey Baron--all of whom are capable of being both explosive and tastefully subtle. Above all, the interaction between the two six-string wizards, Frisell and Scofield, is outstanding.
