Bebop United by Tom Scott

Bebop United, a live recording, assembles personality headlights in the art of jazz. Trumpeter Randy Brecker, saxophonists Ronnie Cuber and Phil Woods, pianist Gil Goldstein, bassist Duane Burno, trombonist Jay Ashby and drummer Willie Green discharge a bunch of unvarnished jazz pieces.

Saxophonist, composer and conductor Tom Scott has earned three Grammy Awards and 13 Grammy nominations. He is also known as a composer of many film scores and television series and has also join forces with his craft for stars ranging from Thelonious Monk and Ravi Shankar all the way to pop artists such as Paul McCartney and Rod Stewart.

Scott twists his nitty-gritty on Bebop United, playing his own compositions as well as paraphrasing Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea and Cannonball Adderley’s unforgettable themes, "Children of the Night," "Tones for Jones Bones" and "Sack O’ Woe".

The movements of Bebop United are invigorating and the technique is undeniable, although it does spoon up a frequently deemed framework. Scott’s compositions "Silhouettes," "Back Burner" and "Close View" illustrate, however, the extent of his musical scope.

The enormous amount of musical waters tested by Tom Scott during his career is gargantuan and this straight-ahead release lures us away to esteem his proficiency’s keystone.
