James Scholfield has played with the best that Cape Town and South Africa have to offer…

Such artists include: Billy Hart (Wes Montgomery, Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock and many more), Hein Van de Geyn (Dee Dee Bridgewater, Oscar Peterson, Toots Thielmans, John Abercrombie), Natascha Roth, Andrew Lilley, Coleman Mellet (Chuck Mangione), Jeanie Bryson (Terrance Blanchard, Grover Washington), Hotep Idris Galeta (Jackie McLean), Winston Mankunku Ngozi, John Fourie, Jack Van Poll, Stacey Rowles, Paul Hamner and Philip Aertes, among others.

Since 2003 James has been gigging around Europe, South Africa and the US and is working on getting to South America and the Far East. Born in the UK, James grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. He tried a variety of musical instruments before choosing the guitar. He studied at the Jazz Workshop, where he met and jammed with a number of musicians from various backgrounds. He also haunted the local jazz venues, watching 
amazing players like Winston Mankunku Ngozi, Jonathan Butler, Basil Moses, John Fourie and Merton Barrow, and it is here he developed his distinct guitar style.
