"Ideofunk," a Scofield composition, was recorded live at the 2006 Monterey Jazz Festival, featuring Scofield on electric guitar; Avi Bortnick, acoustic guitar and whistle; Mark Kelley, bass; and Adam Deitch, drums. Scofield's Überjam will perform at 9 p.m. on December 31, 2012, in the Berklee Performance Center.
