The zigzag career of jazz guitarist John Scofield moves like an improvisational solo: backing Chet Baker and Charles Mingus in the 1970s, flanking Miles Davis in the 1980s and bringing virtuosic flair and vocal tone to solo fusion records in the 1990s-2000s. Captured here, 2009's Piety Street (Emarcy) features Jon Cleary, George Porter Jr. and Terence Higgins. 3Pc. Spicy opens. Tickets $20.
