Jazz.FM91 Jazz in July Concert Series – The Andrew Scott Trio: Tribute to Henry Mancini


Had the opportunity to see the Andrew Scott Trio and their Tribute to Henry Mancini at Hugh’s Room last evening as the JAZZ.FM91’s Jazz in July Concert Series kicked off.

The Andrew Scott Trio paid homage to one of the most versatile talents in contemporary music, Henry Mancini –  whom I heard a great deal of growing up because my father was a huge fan.  Who doesn’t like the Pink Panther theme, Peter Gunn theme, Moon River, Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Days of Wine and Roses?

The concert was, as expected, fantastic, and I’m not just saying that because the guitarist, composer and educator, Dr. Andrew Scott is a close and personal friend of mine, but because Dr. Andy, as I call him, is a Canadian jazz icon because of his talents and knowledge of everything jazz and music in general.  He has magical hands and fingers, a soothing voice and he now only wowed the crowd with his music, but with his knowledge.

Andrew-Scott-TrioMany times during the show, I wanted to sit back, close my eyes and let the music overtake me, but if I did that, I would miss the spectacle of watching Dr. Andy play.

The room was packed, the crowd was lively and very much into the music, and in awe of Andrew Scott’s immense talents.

A great time was had by all.
