John Scofield and the Piety Street Band at Tipitina’s Tonight

Saturday- September 25, 2010- The legendary guitarist is best known as a jazz player, but this band is all local funk talent-  Terence Higgins on drums, Jon Cleary on keys and George Porter, Jr. on bass.  They are as monstrous as any ensemble he has appeared with in his lustrous career.  I saw the very end of the band’s set at the Jazz Fest and they had the normally staid Jazz Tent crowd up and dancing in the aisles.  The band got its name because “Sco” recorded with them at Piety Street Studios in the Bywater.  3pc. Spicy, a trio featuring Tom Worrell on keys and Chris Jones on percussion, open the evening.
