Scott was born in Marathon Florida, part of the Florida Keys and raised by immigrant parents who seldom wore clothes and worshiped the sun. There he learned the ways of the ocean, fishing and making bamboo instruments... selling them to unsuspecting tourists. In this way he learned the wondrous talent of mesmerizing an audience. He started plucking away on homemade harps made of palm fronds and coconut fiber, where people would come from all over the globe to hear this young wonder play! Word spread throughout the lands and his parents knew they had something special. They sold all of their conch shells and fishing nets to send him to the Saint Eustacia School of Music where he sacrificed his dread locks to the volcano god of the island, and solidified his conceptual idea of Jazz. Returning home to take care of his aging immigrant family, he has remained in the South Florida area accumulating over 35 years of experience playing as a professional musician

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
