The adage “experience is the best teacher” applies here since Scot’s 5th CD “Vibination” was released at the Kitano Jazz Club in New York City June 17, 2010. Since then, Scot has religiously performed in NYC and Tri State area venues each and every month mixing up the appearances with a bevy of Musicians / Instrument combinations. Scot has stepped into the roles of Bandleader, Producer and Arranger. The culmination of this three year learning curve is the NEW 6th CD. Scot picked the Musicians that have been recorded on this NEW 6th CD from those experiences / appearances and the songs recorded are music that audiences enjoy / request while performing.
