"Keith´s debut jazz CD,"Waikiki", was released on Eroica/Turn On Records in April of 2004, and featured his piano and brass talents on 8 original and 3 cover songs. I´ve played it on air a lot and have been patiently awaiting the arrival of a follow up project. IT´S HERE !!!!
Scott´s new CD with 14 songs was arranged for jazz piano trio and latin percussion. Keith is a Down Beat Magazine award winning arranger and it´s highly evident on this fine collection. We miss you in Hawaii, Keith, but I know that chasing your dream of pura vida in Costa Rica is coming true for you. Please don´t make us wait too long for your next endeavor."

In seven of these tunes I quoted a melody from a different song for a brief time during my improvisation section, making a little game for the listener that I call "try to find and identify the tune within a tune."
I welcome your E-mails to check with me on your results.
The last song, "Europa", is a bonus tune from my "Waikiki" CD. It sold so well on the digital download scene that I´m hoping to give it a second life through this release. It features my Flugelhorn and recieved rave reviews from the critics in ´04.
Some liberties were taken with several of these tunes including ¨Triste¨ which is faster than usual and played as a samba. It also includes an unusual downward modulation from the key of Bb to the key of A. On Jim Hall´s SIMPLE SAMBA we dropped 2 bars of drum fill at the end of each section, making the song form shorter by 6 measures. The B sections were cut in both LIKE A LOVER and DEJA VU resulting in ABA form rather than AABA. The first chorus of BLUE BOSSA is played with the standard chord progressions but every second chorus is ripe with extended chords and alternate chord changes making it lots of fun to improvise on. Louis Bonfa´s BLACK ORPHEUS has lots of added leading chords and alternate chord changes on the intro and ending.

Thanks for listening,
Keith Scott
