Guitarist-composer John Scofield and Grammy-winning saxophonist-composer Joe Lovano first played together in the 1970s when they were students at Berklee College of Music in Boston. They went on to form a highly popular group in the 1990s and released the albums Meant to Be and Time on My Hands. Since then John has led his own groups, performing music described as pop-bop, funk-edged jazz and R&B. Joe is a longtime Blue Note artist and has released 23 celebrated albums on the label.

The John Scofield-Joe Lovano Quartet, with bassist Ben Street and drummer Lewis Nash, is slated to make its only Northern California appearance Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall at the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto. KCSM-FM will be broadcasting the concert the live, which will be hosted by Alisa Clancy and Michael Burman.
