Recently I had the good fortune to walk into a jazz bar and
catch another performance by the Al Scott Trio
Having seen him once before I felt lucky to have returned
weeks later and caught his next gig. Even before considering
his musical talent, it's a pleasure to see him perform. I think a
profoundly deaf individual would still be able to enjoy Al. He
reminds me somewhat of the young Daniel Tammet (a maths
genius), in that when he talks about his performance he is
exceedingly humble and unassuming, even though a moment
before his skill was just impressing the shit out of you. He
could get away with putting on airs and graces if he so
wished, but that's simply not Al's disposition at all.
I found him very approachable and warm, and I imagine that
as his talent is more widely recognised he will do well to have
a dependable group of friends that give him some respite from
what is bound to be a great deal of attention in the world of
That it tends to receive significantly less commercial
recognition than other musical forms is probably what has
been Jazz's best friend in terms of filtering out people who are
purely in it for fame and fortune...
