Horace Scott & The Horace Scott Quartet
From Mariah Carey & Kelly Price (live at St. John's Divine Christmas Concert) to Ben Folds (1993), Lenny White (1988) & Pic Conely (1994) I have been blessed to have worked with some of today's finest artists.
While at C.C.N.Y working towards my bachelors in music I had the opportunity to study alongside Arturo O’ Farrill . Arturo had composed a special arrangement of the schools Alma mata song “Oh Lavender” that we performed during a spring Commencement ceremony.
C.C.N.Y provided the environment that allowed me the honor and privilege to study under jazz vocalist Sheila Jordan & the legendary bassist Ron Carter.
In 1991-1992 I toured the U.S. and Canada with the first Equity Broadway production of The Buddy Holly Story. This Production featured Chip Esten and Tichina Arnold.
Also, in 1991 U.K. Pop sensation Kenny Thomas recorded my song “Girlfriend” co written with R & B producer Bert Price. The album was entitled “Voices” and went double platinum.
In 1996 I landed a position at WPIX-TV and in 2000 I was hired as a full time Engineer.
In 1997 I broke into the Billboards pop 100 singles chart with a remake of the BJ Thomas / Blue Suede hit "Hooked on a Feeling".
In 2009 I released my first project as a record label executive” Green Heart”. The roster of musicians that I had the pleasure of working with were as follows: Toninho Horta, Nilson Matta, Romero Lubambo, Ze’Luis, Paulo Braga and Jerry Jemmot.
In late 2011 good friend Mike Merola asked me if I would join his band The City Boys Allstars. I can not thank him enough for the opportunity to work closely along side such fine musicians with such established careers. The City Boys Allstars roster is: Al Macdowell, The Late:Lew Soloff. Tom "Bones" Malone, "Blue Lou" Marini, Andy Snitzer, Tony Kadleck, Angel Rissoff, Daniel Sadownick, Nick Saya, Rob Clores, Pete Levin, BiL Kurz and Mike Merola.
In April the documentary "Honoring Our Elders" Produced and Directed by Frank Melli and Hosted by Horace Scott Premiered Nationaly on Free Speech TV.
