(CD with DVD) Tony Scott is one of the most vivid and continually creative originals as he reverberatingly shows throughout this new recording. He also exemplifies the wisdom of Wynton Marsalis: "We don't believe in segregating our music by eras." His career was and is multidimensional. He played with Claude Thornhill, Tommy Dorsey and Duke Ellington as well as on a wide range of recording sessions including dates with Billie Holiday, who admired his playing. On this record he convincingly speaks the language of deep and low-down blues with a capacity for deeply flowing lyricism and unabashed romanticism. A quintessential recording of timeless originality.
