Scott Gilman

Scott Gilman first picked up the saxophone at age 10, inspired by his Dad’s late night jam sessions with other local jazz musicians. The rock scene in Massachusetts also influenced him and it wasn’t long before he picked up a guitar as well. His formative years were equally split between studying and playing the jazz of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, et al and forming his own rock bands to perform locally. He started playing professionally at age 15. After winning numerous awards in school as a saxophonist he won a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Therehe studied under jazz greats Herb Pomeroy, John LaPorta, Joe Viola, and Andy McGhee. He also studied privately with tenor saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. He continued to gig to support himself through college including a brief stint on the road with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.
