The Scott Foster Quartet
featuring Dave Len Scott, trumpet
jazz in the bookshop
every Friday after work
Scott Foster has been on the Friday evening schedule since its start in late 2002. He brings in a project every third Friday, always fresh and always deeply satisfying.
This time out, he’s hosting his long-time collaborator, Dave Scott, who left San Francisco for Sedona, AZ not long ago.
Dave Len Scott brings together a beautiful classical sound with high-compression lead trumpet playing, balancing power and innovation with charismatic, singing tones. His studies include jazz trumpet with Blue Note’s Louis Smith, and he has toured and recorded with such acts as Boz Scaggs, Rosemary Clooney, Michael Feinstein, the Marcus Shelby Orchestra, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Brass Monkey Brass Band, and the Dave Scott Jazz Quartet. As a classical trumpeter, he has worked with the San Francisco, Honolulu, Napa, and Santa Rosa symphonies, and has performed as guest soloist with the SF Sinfonietta Orchestra. Dave is a fluent pianist and History of Jazz lecturer, as well as a private trumpet instructor and Adjunct Faculty for the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley, Berkeley City College; he is also trumpet instructor at Sonoma State University.
