About Tom Scott:
An original member of the Blues Brothers band with John Belushi and Dan Akroyd, as “first-call” L.A. session musician since the 70’s, saxophonist/composer Tom Scott has dozens of solo recordings for which he collected thirteen Grammy nominations (three of which he won). He also has numerous film and television scoring credits, including composing and conducting the score for the movie Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and appeared on records by such diverse artists as George Harrison, the Beach Boys, the Grateful Dead, Paul McCartney, Steppenwolf, Rod Stewart, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchell, Blondie, Eddie Money, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Quincy Jones, Carole King, Helen Reddy, Olivia Newton-John and Frank Sinatra, to name a few. Scott was a founding member of the Blues Brothers Band, despite his absence in the two films.
Scott’s best-known works are the theme songs for TV series Starsky and Hutch and The Streets of San Francisco along with movies and his soprano sax solo and fills on the 1975 No. 1 hit single “Listen to What the Man Said” for Wings. In 1976 he played the theme I Still Can’t Sleep in Taxi driver.
About Combo Nuvo:
The brainchild of Dave Schroeder and Rich Shemaria, Combo Nuvo was created to explore the diversity of musical experiences each member brought to the group. Their premise was simple; let’s combine our favorite music with our favorite musicians and see what happens. In addition, they brought unique instruments from around the world into the group, finding new ways to write and arrange for them. Playing in tiny bistros and coffee houses around the Village during the late 90’s, the group began to find their sound. Their unique blend was created using instruments like the chromatic harmonica & blues harp, acoustic guitar, cello, Middle Eastern percussion, piano & synthesizers, jaw harp, penny whistle, flutes, clarinets and saxophones.
The Jam Session Mission Statement
The Jam Session is based on the art of improvising with Jazz as the primary foundation. However, other styles and influences are present as well.
The Jam Session is continuously trying to promote and encourage musicians and audience members from the global community participate, creating an eclectic mix of music and culture.
The Jam Session is inspired by the late night jam sessions and loft rehearsals in New York City. We believe that the evolution and survival of improvisational music takes place in front of a live audience, being inclusive and accessible to all who wants to engage.
