THE DAVE SCOTT VIOLIN BAND
The Dave Scott Band features some of New York’s finest improvisers. Their experiences range from traditional forms of jazz and classical music to the extremely experimental and atonal. Dave Scott’s compositions reflect both specific forms with dense harmonic structures and open frameworks for free improvisation. The focus of the group is to utilize the engaging and often complex compositions as vehicles for improvisation. The pieces develop interactively and organically allowing each musician full individual expression. The group performs regularly in the New York City area.
