    When it comes to jazz, the clarinet is often thought of as an instrument belonging to the Swing era and/or traditional New Orleans/Dixieland styles. Tony Scott (1921-2007) was one of the first (and few) clarinetists to take the instrument into the bebop scene and then beyond. Scott was also one of the first jazz players to explore the possibilities of combining the form with the classical and folk music of India. This JAZZ LIFE edition provides a fine introduction to his artistry via a cross-section of his earlier, straight-ahead jazz recordings. Scott was a fine musician and composer who never quite got the credit he deserves: JAZZ LIFE is a first step in rectifying that.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.65) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Using 'Caravan' as a platform, he moves across the full range of his horn in sliding, loopy phrases."
    JazzTimes (p.108) - "A JAZZ LIFE is full of vitality....Scott has a deep, gravelly voice, and he talks and scats through his 'Low, Down, Dirty, Good for Nothing Blues,' which is as fine a blues as you'll hear."
