It only takes 4 to put a nickel in a premodern jukebox of sweet big band era vocal harmony.
NOTES
The Vintage Vocal Quartet brings to life the sweet harmonies of the big band era: groups like the Glenn Miller Orchestra's Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Delta Rhythm Boys, the Andrews Sisters, and the Tommy Dorsey band's Pied Pipers. Even if you aren't familiar with these groups, you have definitely heard of some of their members. Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Connee Boswell and Jo Stafford began their careers singing harmony.

If I Was in Jail

by David Thorne Scott

Released 2015
Released 2015
David Thorne Scott's music farms a homestead at the confluence of four American rivers: jazz, rock, blues, and country.
NOTES
"If I Was In Jail" explores the loneliness at the heart of modern life. It was written in a hotel room on the road, far from friends and family, where the fantasy of apartness met the reality. "As a teenager I loved 'I Am A Rock' by Paul Simon because even though on the surface the song is about independence, the dark power of loneliness lurks directly underneath," Scott said. This flavor of independence about …

Hopeful Romantic

by David Thorne Scott

Released 2012
Released 2012
A sexy jazz/pop confection of smoky jazz vocals, bold rock piano anthems, effervescent pop and dark hip-hop musings.
NOTES
Armed with roses and a piano, singer/songwriter and pianist David Thorne Scott has designs on your heart with his new album Hopeful Romantic. Deep musicianship and creativity born of years of jazz explorations combine with youthful iconoclasm and a rock aesthetic to give music-lovers a delightful surprise. Playfully sweet but wise lyrics and angular melodies are hallmarks, as is the intimate yet strong voice that declaims them.

“I love my audience. Whenever I have …

With a voice described as powerful, tender, pure, and clear, jazz singer Scott bends standards into modern shapes, blazes into fiery vocal improvisation, and creates unique original songs.

DYAD

by David Thorne Scott

Released 2007
Released 2007
If Bill Evans had survived to make a duo album with Kurt Elling, it might sound like this: original songs, striking arrangements of standards, and a level of musical interplay that borders on telepathy.
NOTES
David Thorne Scott (voice) and Mark Shilansky (piano) perform fresh treatments of jazz standards and original tunes in a freewheeling duo performance.

David Thorne Scott and Mark Shilansky have been playing music together for over five years, but it took a happy accident to bring about their latest project. David had a collection of 20 or so new songs and arrangements, and had the idea to go into the recording studio with Mark to create demo …
