Lynn René Bayley
Fanfare, May 2015

As usual in all Jazzhaus releases, the sound quality is spectacular…

No matter how many other Tony Scott recordings you have, if you like his playing you need to make room for this one. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

…Tony Scott is heard in fine form…either in a quartet or a combo with talented if lesser-known players. © 2015 L.A. Jazz Scene

Fanfare, March 2015

Moonlight and the ensuing The Man I Love are amongst Scott’s finest ballad performances. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Icon, February 2015

…if you’ve never heard the blues on clarinet, you must hear how Scott navigates the standards “Moonlight in Vermont” and “The Man I Love”—his bluesy ballad playing should be taught in schools, in regard to saying a lot with the least amount of notes. But he can and does wail like a mofo a la Charlie Parker on “Lover Come Back to Me.” No exotica here, but some swell swingin’ sounds by a fellow that deserves to be heard by new generations. © 2015 Icon



George W. Harris
Jazz Weekly, January 2015

The first set has Scott with a sensitive team of Horst Jankowski, Peter Witte and Hermann Mutschler and they serve Scott amazingly well. Scott’s got a sweet chocolaty tone that is rich in ebullience, and glows in the dark on “Moonlight In Vermont” while goes moody on a soft “You Go To My Head.” He shows his bop chops on a fiery “Lover Come Back to Me” which is filled with E ticket thrills, and a hip “Blues” is followed by an air raid attack of “A Night in Tunisia.” WOW

The Singapore gig has a different band… What’s constant is Scott’s indefatigable chops, which sizzles on “ All The Things you Are” and moans like a wimpering coyote on “Blues For Charlie Parker.” This is a guy that makes wood sound like Waterford Crystal. Get a hold of it! © 2015 Jazz Weekly Read complete review



Cadence, January 2015

All the players are competent…Another stellar addition to the Jazz Haus series. © 2015 Cadence




Pierre Giroux
Audiophile Audition, November 2014

…Scott’s playing is exceptional, filled with intricate ideas and extended solos of speed, potency, and energy.…[and he] receive steadfast support from pianist Horst Jankowski who has a nimble and crisp approach to the keyboard. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
