Scorched is the live recorded premiere of the (re-)composition by Mark-Anthony Turnage commissioned by the Society of Friends and Patrons of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra in 2002. Turnage recomposed and orchestrated original compositions by jazz guitarist John Scofield for symphony orchestra and big band to which the title refers (SCOfield ORCHstratED). Scofield was part of the project together with John Patitucci on electric bass and Peter Erskine on drums. 2004 it was Grammy nominated for "Best Classical Crossover Album" . (The work on "Scorched" is also featured in the film portrait of Turnage by Barrie Gavin ("Getting Scorched: Mark-Anthony Turnage", DVD, 2009))
