John Scofield & Joe Lovano Quartet | Leverkusener Jazztage 2015

Lovano has recently been performing with an expanded ensemble which will be featured on his upcoming Blue Note release to be called Streams of Expression which will include Gunther Schuller's “Birth of the Cool Suite,” commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival as well as a five part suite composed by Lovano.
