Violinist Jeremy Cohen reimagines the music of Raymond Scott on a new, full-length collaboration between the Quartet San Francisco, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band and the legendary a cappella group, Take 6.
The thrilling 14-track collection, which includes Goodwin’s fresh arrangements of eight Scott classics also introduces an entirely new composition, “Cutey and the Dragon,” which was crafted from an unfinished sketch Scott made in 1982 with Goodwin completing the composition in a manner that honors the great composer’s style and verve.
The Quartet San Francisco performed the compositions of Raymond Scott with a whimsical dynamism that flowed throughout the music. Scott’s work has been closely associated with Warner Bros. cartoons, although he didn’t write his music for animation. Vocals by Take 6 brings another dimensions to this album that lifts QSF and Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band to extraordinary jazz heights that we rarely hear.
