Description

Before he developed into a star composer and arranger, Tom Scott was an ambitious 19 year-old saxophonist looking for his big break in 1967. The opportunity came when legendary jazz label Impulse paired Scott with 9-piece vocal group The California Dreamers and allowed the young musician to take the helm as a band leader, with The Honeysuckle Breeze as the spectacular result.

This rare and long out-of-print album features Scott leading a stellar lineup of sessions players-Bill Plummer (sitar), Glen Campbell (guitar) and Carol Kaye (bass) among them-through warm, smooth versions of songs by The Beatles (“She’s Leaving Home”), Donovan (“Mellow Yellow”), Joan Baez (“North”) and Jefferson Airplane (“Today”), which many will recognize from it’s sampling in the Pete Rock & CL Smooth classic “T.R.O.Y.”

Resurrected and refurbished by the reissue specialists at Get On Down, Scott’s debut record receives the deluxe treatment upon its long awaited return to vinyl. This special release is pressed on 150 gram vinyl for optimum audio quality and is presented in a paste-on gatefold packaging featuring high-gloss artwork reproduced from the original jacket design.
