Taking its name from letters in the bandmembers' names, jazz supergroup Scolohofo features the combined talents of guitarist John Scofield, saxophonist Joe Lovano, bassist Dave Holland, and drummer Al Foster. While the group technically formed in 1999 during Lovano's weeklong engagement at the Montreal Jazz Festival, the members have a much longer association with each other. Significantly, Foster performed with Scofield while they were both in trumpeter/jazz legend Miles Davis' band during the early '80s. Similarly, Lovano and Scofield's association goes back as far as the '70s when they were both working in Boston. Scolohofo toured first in 1999 and then in 2002 leading up to the recording of its first studio album, Oh!, released on Blue Note in 2003. ~ Matt Collar
