CD Review: Dred Scott - Dred Scott Rides Alone

Dred Scott (piano, bass, drums, shaker).
(Review by Lance).

A one-man band! Albeit a digital one where, thanks to the wonders of overdubbing, Scott recorded each instrument separately to create the effect of a piano trio and, if I hadn't been wised up beforehand, I'd have sworn it was three very good musicians. He also composed seven of the eight numbers - well he would, wouldn't he?

His c.v. includes working with such luminaries as Anthony Braxton, Andrew Cyrelle, Joe Morello, Joe Henderson, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Ricky Lee Jones and the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra out in California. He was also co-founder of, I quote, the groundbreaking hip-hop jazz group Alphabet Soup.

Truly a man of many and varied talents that are well reflected on this quite absorbing album.
Lance
Release date is Sept. 24 on Ropeadope.
