Inside Scofield gets ready to launch into jazz!
The editing has been finished since a few months, but now we finally have a release date (TBA:next week)!
The reason for the delay: Clearing the music rights for an indie project like this was hard before but got kind of out of hand during the time of the pandemic. Also unforeseeable budget-miscalculations due to a general increase of costs made it very difficult to proceed according to plan. But – everything is cleared now, and I’m happy that most of you brought a great understanding to all of this.
This unintentional delay brought some unexspected opportunities as well: In the last few months I had the chance to conduct additional interviews with John’s musical family: Mike Stern, Bill Evans, Gary Grainger, Dennis Chambers and Pat Metheny will be part of the film, too. These interviews turned out longer than exspected and will be certainly quite interesting for some of you. Since I only used small bits in the film, I decided to compile them into a little series called “VOICES”, which will be available soon.
