John Scofield went in that way too many effects mode as well. I saw him live a about twelve years ago and he bored the audience to the point where people were falling asleep with his spacey overloaded guitar effects where you could not distinguish the notes he was playing and it was lots of slow music.
On a side note, my current drummer was at Berklee College of Music the same time John Scofield was there and he said he was a fantastic player back then. He also had Greg Hawkes and Elliot Easton as classmates before they formed The Cars and he said they were both incredible players as well.
+1 Luckily, Sco has really gotten back to just good old guitar in the past 10 years or so. Saw him a number of times, just a 335 or whatever that is that he plays through an amp. Sounded great. His Ray Charles tribute CD, along with the couple groove things he did with Modeski, Martin and Woods are GREAT!
I agree... hard to listen to his classic 'Loud Jazz' for me at this point.
