All About Jazz
No matter how far out of bounds from local Groovesville he goes with harmonics, timbre or technique, on Bump he always returns to the continually chugging groove orbitand it doesn’t let up for (close to) one solid, classic hour of prime uncut funk. […]
Scofield’s playing is broken down into shorter, simplerand funkier phrases than he’s generally known for, bobbing and weaving with his fractured tone to suit the groove-oriented music. […]
Those still pining for the Gil-like voicings and elegance of Quiet may be put off by the relentless nature of this groovy collaboration. But those who aren’t afraid of the funk will definitely want to go to this A Go Go. […]
