In his final trip to the recording studio for Gramavision, jazz fusionist John Scofield once again shifted gears and showed his ever-growing legion of fans a glimpse of his new direction on his 1989 CD entitled "Flat Out". The grooves here are greasier, more redolent of New Orleans, and they anticipate where Scofield arrived with his Hand Jive quartet five years later. The supporting band of Don Grolnick on Hammond B-3 organ, Anthony Cox on bass and Terri Lyne Carrington and Johnny Vidacovich sharing drum chores is an inspired acoustic/electric blend that allows Scofield to cover "Cissy Strut" and "Rockin' Pneumonia" as well as burn on six originals and a couple of Tin Pan Alley standards.
