John Scofield first came into his own as a jazz guitarist in the 1970s.
On his new album, That's What I Say, Scofield pays tribute to the late master: Ray Charles. And he has some help, ranging from Mavis Staples and John Mayer to Dr. John and David "Fathead" Newman, who played saxophone in Charles' band.
