As of 01/01/2015:
I have been so busy that I decided to not update my website for a while. Also, I am testing a new website...stay tuned...
I play at Viva Cantina in Burbank every Wednesday night 7:30-10:00 with Rex Merriweather's "This Ain't Your Daddy's Big Band". Rex's 20-piece band often has surprise guest vocalists, and usually includes musicians who have toured, performed or recorded with: Rod Stewart, Brian Setzer, Tower of Power, Buddy Rich, Ray Charles, Manhatten Transfer, Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Dixie Chicks, Arturo Sandoval, Guns and Roses, and many more. We play great arrangements of old TV themes, spy themes and many great jazz, blues, latin, funk and big-band songs!
I also do various solo acoustic gigs around town (I post most of my gigs on my facebook page).

Mystical Journey (Jerry Scott)CURRENT PROJECT:
In the studio playing one of my solo acoustic instrumental tunes on my Larrivee OMV-03.
I'm writing and recording my solo acoustic guitar CD "Late and Quiet". The compositions are 6 and 12-string original solo acoustic guitar instrumentals.
CD artwork by Evanthia Milara
I think of each tune as a journey. Since I don't sing on my tunes, I rely on melody, feel, energy and dynamics to translate the feelings of a particular composition, and hope that the listener can join me on these journeys.
As time and inspiration allows, I'm working on my electric compositions which are a blend of eclectic/pop/blues/jazz/rock/twang originals that groove.
I'm also involved in a few writing projects...stay tuned...and I'm always interested to discuss collaborating in other projects!
