Music Monday: Tom Scott
“Today, I feel like pleasing you more than before.” Well not really haha. I know you already guessed that today’s Music Monday artist is the talented, saxophonist, composer, arranger, conductor and band leader of the L.A. Express, Tom Scott. Thanks to CL Smooth and Pete Rock’s T.R.O.Y. I discovered Tom Scott. After hearing that saxophone sample, I needed to find out who that song was by. I asked my Dj friends and unfortunately they were no help at all. But surprisingly Youtube came to the rescue. After I heard Tom Scott’s rendition of Today that is originally by Jefferson Airplane, I wanted more! Turns out that he did some work on the Starsky and Hutch song entitled “Gotcha” as well as his soprano sax fill for “Listen to What the Man Said” that was used for the show Wings.
He is an extremely talented artist and it would be awesome to see him and L.A. Express in concert. I wanted to do something different and show how I got to his music. Enjoy!
