Scofield appeared as a special guest on the band’s 2002 debut album Outta Here (Velour Recordings), and they’ve rejoined forces over the years. It’s a connection that’s matured as the Lettuce players evolved from enthusiastic teens at a Berklee summer program known for hitting up Boston venues for gigs with the insistent refrain “Let us play!” (hence the name Lettuce) to a jam band supergroup.

Guitarist Eric Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans went on to found Soulive, while drummer Adam Deitch spent several years working with Sco, providing the potent grooves on his Verve albums Überjam and Up All Night. Saxophonist Ryan Zoidis long divided his time between Soulive and Maine’s popular jazz/funk band Rustic Overtones, and bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes has toured internationally with Britney Spears and The Game. Guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff has also worked widely as a first-call sideman with an array of artists, including Lady Gaga and Robert Randolph, while trumpeter Eric Bloom, the band’s most recent addition, has become a New Orleans stalwart, recording with Jon Cleary and Aaron Neville.

The long-running relationship between guitar icon John Scofield and the all-star jam band Lettuce is built on a deep and abiding love of funk.

Scofield’s muse has evolved from guitar standards to post-bop to fusion and back again. He wears a gilded robe as the modern messiah of ‘Terminator jazz’.

Far from just sticking to a psychedelic, jam band sound, Lettuce melds their trippy-ness with old school funk, in part by using its stellar horn section.
