What We Do is the second studio album by jazz group The John Scofield Quartet. It was recorded in May 1992 and released the following year on Blue Note Records. Besides John Scofield on guitar, the quartet features saxophonist Joe Lovano, Bill Stewart on drums and Dennis Irwin on bass, replacing Marc Johnson. Irwin and Scofield (both born in 1951) had already recorded together in the mid-1980s with Bennie Wallace on a track for his album Sweeping Through the City. Irwin would be the bassist on two more albums by Scofield, Hand Jive (1994) and Groove Elation (1995).
