Scott Tixier

Scott Tixier (born 26 February 1986) is an award-winning French jazz violinist and a recording artist.

Tixier has earned international recognition for his playing. Grammy Award winning bassist Marcus Miller says that Tixier “is making an international name for himself. I heard him in France and was immediately struck by his individuality and his sound.” Guitarist Pat Metheny says, “[Scott] has found a place for himself within the elite community of New York jazz musicians, no small feat.” In an interview with All About Jazz in 2010, violinist Mark Feldman called Scott “really up-and-coming and very talented.” Jean-Luc Ponty said “I have heard Scott's recordings, seen his live performances and I think that he stands above the crowd of current jazz violinists around the world.”
