Something 4 The Weekend # 32


Jazz clarinetist Tony Scott died yesterday at the age of 85.

Now, I would consider myself a Jazz aficionado, but I have to admit that I really didn't know anything about Mr. Scott until I read this morning's news stories about his passing. Like the fact that he played with Charlie Parker and Billie Holliday, among other extremely heavy hitters in the Jazz world.

What I do know is that Tony Scott's album, Music For Zen Meditation, is a fantastic album, one of my favorites, and a rare gem among my collection. As its title suggests, it's a very calm, soothing album of music that skirts the outside edges of "proper" Jazz, and truly is conducive to meditative states, or even just taking naps. Quite lovely.


I really don't have much else to say about this week's selection except that I hope and assume that Mr. Scott is resting in peace somewhere in the great beyond.

Hotcha! Hank
