Scott was born in New York in 1951, and began playing piano at age eight. He moved to California in 1969. Scott has been a professional musician for over 40 years and he has extensive touring and recording experience. He has performed in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Japan, and Taiwan, performing in stadiums to crowds of 100,000 people, opening shows for the Beach Boys, Santana, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, to name a few.

Scott toured with Jesse Colin Young for 10 years, and recorded 7 albums with him on Warner/Elektra. A high point in his career was playing the Rose Bowl, Carnegie Hall and the TV show "The Midnight Special" with Jesse. He recorded two albums with Country Joe and the Fish on Fantasy and did some touring with Elvin Bishop “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” and Mary Wells “My Guy."
Scott moved to Alaska in 1985 where he began playing jazz professionally and fell in love with Anchorage. Scott played first with Big Mitch at the Midnight Express then joined the jazz trio ChromaZone. They recorded CDs in Taiwan in 1990 and were invited to tour the Soviet Union by the Director of International Festivals. Soon thereafter he started working with Ray Booker in the jazz group Pyramid. He feels fortunate to have recorded a CD with them in 1992.
Scott started college at the University of Alaska in Anchorage where he received his AA. He earned his Masters Degree in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas in 1997.

Moving back out to California, Scott has been playing and teaching piano there ever since. He recorded 4 CDs with the jump swing band Stompy Jones, still touring with them in venues from Disneyland to Nashville.

Scott loved living in Alaska and considers it one of his homes. He looks forward to getting back there in November, seeing some old friends and playing some music with Ray and the great bands he puts together!
