After watching the clips of Lovano w Chris Potter, I stumbled accross some older clips of the Scofield Quartets with Joe Lovano. Absolutely love this stuff, and I really had no awareness of Lovano before 1990 or so.

I had the privledge of seeing the quartet a few times first w. Anthony Cox and John Reilly and then the Dennis Irwin/Bill Stewart anchored group...Lovano is such a nice guy very approachable, warm personality, and total jazz freak (in the best possible sense)! Of course, he's a total monster who's absorbed everything and can play anything, a real musician's musician, imho.

It's hard to belive that was over 20 years ago that Time on My Hands came out!!!

Those two have been working together since the 70's and putting out some great tunes. I think there is a video out there where Lovano plays a mean cowbell backing up JScofield on Cissy Strut I think, and he playing a Dolnet Tenor. B

That's my favorite Scofield phase, the quartet with Lovano. After that, most of what Sco has done is rather boring, at least for me.
