And, as always, an attempt to answer some fundamental questions of metaphysics through song.
"My job as a performer is to make sure that whatever happens in a performance lives in somebody else, that it's memorable... If you forget tomorrow what you heard yesterday, there's really not much point in you having been there - or me, for that matter." -- Yo-Yo Ma

Who is Scott Colley and why should you come see us play at this intimate, listening room?
"Scott Colley has been called “one of the leading bassists of our postbop era, and a composer-bandleader of quietly serious resolve” by The New York Times, while musical colleagues, like saxophonist Joshua Redman, praise him for being “one of the most musical bassists playing today. To me, he seems to have…this natural, intuitive, empathic sense of how to bring the most out of the other musicians and the music he’s playing.”
Colley, a three time Grammy nominee, has performed on over 200 recordings, eight of those as bandleader and composer. He is a first-call sideman, as renowned for his role in groups led by well-known headliners—John Scofield, Herbie Hancock, Chris Potter, many others—as he is for being part of all-star projects like “Still Dreaming” with Joshua Redman, Ron Miles, and Brian Blade; and “Steel House” with Edward Simon and Brian Blade."
The night will include songs of mine that Scott loves -- those jazzy/Cole Porter-esque songs like "Take Me With You" and "If Spring Comes Now." Plus a handful of the jazz-pop songs from the new album (that Scott hasn't even heard yet!).
It is going to be the start of an awesome collaboration, I just know it!
You will want to say, "you were there when ..."
