All About Jazz
Scofield’s style has always owed a lot to his ability to create fluid chromatic melodic lines. That was what made him and Mike Stern a formidable duo in Miles’ band. Stern’s raw power and direct blues-rock feel pushed Scofield to a new, more supple guitar styleand I hear a similar rawness and thrust behind the band here. […]

PopMatters
This is a hard call to make. The album is worth listening to because the John Scofield Band is really starting to come together, but I can’t help but feel that it lacks an overall sense of direction that makes it feel like it’s still a work-in-progress. […]

Up All Night is a phat Philly homage from the slow swampy “Watch Out for Po-Po” to the pedalling bass of “Four on the Floor.” Add to that a freak-out disco track and a sideways glance at romantic jazz and you’ll be up all night groovin’ to Scofield. […]
