What's Hot With Jazz Guitar: Scott DuBois

Recently I have wanted to feature 'younger' guitarists who have only a CD or two out. I had to a bit of searching this week to come up with a likable 'new' jazz guitar player ...and finally found New York guitarist Scott DuBois. He only has one album out, but it is certainly unique, slightly avant-garde but quite enjoyable to listen to at the same time.

Scott has a nice straight ahead solo on one of his clips, and some interesting ensemble pieces with 2 horns on the other clips. I expect we'll hear more of him in the years to come.

Online Bio:

Guitarist Scott DuBois has spent the last ten years playing throughout the United States at various jazz clubs, restaurants, and jazz festivals. Scott moved to New York City in the summer of 1996 from the Chicago area to be involved in the world's top jazz scene. Within four years, Scott has worked with such musicians as Regina Carter, Eliane Elias, and BobMintzer while also obtaining his Bachelors of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music.

Scott is currently working there towards his Masters Degree in Jazz Performance. Scott has received critical acclaim from publications such as Guitar World Magazine and RAM magazine for his individual style of playing and composing. Scott's new quintet, The Scott DuBois Quintet, with alto saxophonist Loren Stillman, tenor saxophonist Jason Rigby, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Jeff Davis entered the studio in August 2000 to record their first CD entitled Far Away Home. The Quintet can be seen throughout the New York area at various clubs performing their own original music.

"Scott DuBois is a fine young jazz guitarist, with a keen understanding of dynamics and group interplay, and an equal ability to pen memorable new tunes and interpret standards in his own distinctive voice. Definitely a young talent to keep and eye-and ear-on!" - Guitar World Magazine
