read an interview with Scott at this link!

Scott has been a featured guitarist at Bird & Beckett since our “jazz in the bookshop” series began nearly 15 years ago. For a long time, he was here weekly, though in more recent years, it’s been the third Friday of each month. Throughout, he’s been Bird & Beckett’s favorite guitarist, bar none! Each time he brings a band to the stand, it’s freshly conceived for the occasion, and always a delight.

Tonight, the trio will do a set, then they’ll open up the second set and invite friends and colleagues to share the bandstand in celebration of all the jazz that emanates week after week from the bookshop.

This cd retains all the charm of our weekly Friday night sessions… continuous now for well over 700 consecutive Fridays since its inception in late 2002!
