All Music Guide:
Guitarist and composer Scott Fields was part of Chicago's free jazz scene in the '60s and early '70s. After years of hiatus from music performance, he returned in 1990 more concerned with composition and structure than he had been before. During the '90s, Fields received grants from several organizations, including the Wisconsin Arts Board, and composed for choreographers such as Li Chiao-Ping and Kristy Sesso. In 1999, he formed a trio with Francois Houle and Jason Lee Roebke, and by the end of that year, the trio released their first CD, Hornet's Collage, on Nuscope. Mamet and 96 Gestures were issued in early 2001.
