Since he was an adolescent, Tom Scott continues to be consistent, a talented multi-reedist with little if any interest in performing creative jazz. His mom was a pianist and dad a composer. Scott in early stages became a studio room musician and arranger. In a position to play most reeds with small problems, Scott performed using the Don Ellis and Oliver Nelson rings, and his L.A. Express became probably one of the most effective pop-jazz sets of the 1970s. Organizations with Joni Mitchell, Carole Ruler, and George Harrison had been just some of his effective projects in the pop globe and, although his 1992 GRP launch Born Once again was remarkably inventive, it had been a one-time departure from crossover.
