Tom Scott BIOGRAPHY

Tom Scott

Label(s): Ode Records, A&M Records
Recording Years: 1972-1975

Scott told Billboard that he "loves the stimulation of playing with other people. It's not boring. Once you decide what the notes are, then it's the performance; I want a perfect performance and I zero in on it in terms of decay, matching vibrato, dynamics and all the areas that make up the music... I start listening to the rest of the orchestra...what the second violin is doing...what's the percussion doing...sitting next to Bud Shank or Plas Johnson I benefit by watching how they blow, how they psychologoically set themselves to make each take perfect. Work a Quincy Jones you couldn't pay for those orchestration lessons. To see how their minds work, how their creative ideas are generated is always a tremendous education."

Tom Scott toured with Carole King in 1973 which led to his extended sax solo on her song "Jazzman."
