After an impressive debut as a pianist in 1953, Bobby Scott was 17 when, a year later, he conducted the first of a series of three genuinely creative albums dedicated to his own works, all now compiled on this CD. A man of many moods, bursting with creativity, his compositions are full of a fine feel for harmonic textures and melodically interesting lines.

But also among the outstanding aspects of these sessions are the soloists given ample scope by the writing; Hal McKusick, Eddie Bert, Conte Candoli, Frank Rosolino, Charlie Mariano, Bill Holman, Jimmy Giuffre, Marty Flax and the little known Ronnie Woellmer and John Murtaugh are prime examples of the best of the East and West Coast jazzmen of the era. With Scott also shining as pianist on the second and third dates, this collection is a unique portrait of his precocious talent.
