Jazz guitarist John Scofield is known as a master of the modern tradition, capable of playing time-tested standards as well as experimenting with young musicians like Medeski, Martin and Wood.

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.
