An experienced habeas corpus attorney, Geoffrey Scovil has established himself as a leading lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Geoffrey Scovil founded his law firm in Albuquerque in 1998 and has practiced there since. An aficionado of jazz, he is learning to play the guitar in his free time.

A form of music that traces its origins to both African and European cultures, jazz in its modern incarnation stems from New Orleans, which served as a melting pot for the musical traditions of various cultures. Today, jazz and its influences can be found in music all over the world.

Jazz features a variety of instruments, including horns, which encompass the saxophone, trombone, and trumpet that are responsible for the music’s melody. Another set of instruments, known as the rhythm section, includes the piano, drum, and bass. These instruments act as a complement to the horns and provide a steady beat and musical foundation. Lastly, the guitar is the most flexible instrument and can provide benefits to both the horns and rhythm instruments.
