Editor's info:
ScoLoHoFo - the supergroup made up of guitarist John Scofield, saxophonist Joe Lovano, bassist Dave Holland, and drummer Al. Foster—first played together as a band in 1999, but the musicians’ associations stretched back decades. Scofield, Holland, and Foster were all alumni of Miles Davis’ groups and they appeared together on Joe Henderson’s 1993 Miles tribute So Near, So Far. Scofield’s acclaimed early-90s quartet featured Lovano as heard on a series of excellent Blue Note albums including Time On My Hands and Meant To Be. Recorded in 2002, ScoLoHoFo’s masterful album Oh! Is a dynamic 11-song set that brims with comradery and covers a wide range of stylistic ground. Each of the band members contributed several original compositions including Lovano’s declarative opener “Oh!,” Holland’s expansive “The Winding Way,” Foster’s delicate “Bittersweet,” and Scofield’s propulsive “Shorter Form.”

Blue Note Tone Poet Series - The Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was’ admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley, a.k.a. the “Tone Poet,” on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.
Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality to superior LP mastering (direct from the master tapes) by Kevin Gray to superb 180g audiophile LP pressings by Record Technology Inc. Every aspect of these Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard. It means that you will never find a superior version. This is IT.
This 2-LP stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray (Cohearent Audio) from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at Record Technology Inc. (RTI), and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.

In a review for AllMusic, Matt Collar wrote, "while everyone gets their featured solo spot, the overall effect is one of intensely soft and layered patches of sound... Musically, the goal is resolutely post-bop, but with an acoustic, folky underpining that allows for some interestingly arranged melodic moments."

Jazz Times writer Aaron Steinberg called the album "a well-balanced program of attractive themes-some Latin bits, a few ballads, a few smokers and the requisite blues closer-which give the musicians plenty of harmonic meat to chew on. And what they have they certainly chew up." He concluded: "this unpretentious, intelligent, semicasual throwdown will certainly please anyone who's enjoyed the modern postbop sound that these guys have worked so hard to create."

Michael Pronko, writing for The Japan Times, commented: "The feel of the quartet is one of great intimacy, each member intuitively anticipating each other's every move but also responding to unexpected surprises. Though it’s a studio recording, this sense of being 'live' creates an overall coherence that raises the standards higher for future all-star groups."

In an article for All About Jazz, Terrell Kent Holmes wrote: "Not just a random act of assonance - this disc explores various styles of jazz with brilliant results. From the opening theme of the first cut to Lovano's closing wail at the end, this quartet hits the mark. It may be still very early in 2003, but I'm putting this one on my 'Best Of The Year' list now."
