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 music.

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

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
