Album Review: "Raymond Scott Reimagined" by Quartet San Francisco (8/10)

Violinjazz Recordings

Producers: Jeremy Cohen & Gordon Goodwin

Grammy nominated violinist Jeremy Cohen, of Quartet San Francisco, teams up with Grammy winning Gordon Goodwin for an epic, heartfelt and ambitious celebration of a 20th Century jazz musical giant whose contributions to jazz and swing are often overlooked in comparison to his dozens of compositions that were appropriated for classic Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies cartoons. The producers also bring in another Grammy-winning element, gospel/R&B a capella greats Take 6, to bring a deeper, soul-jazz flavored humanity to the project.  – Jonathan Widran
