A gifted singer, pianist, actor, teacher and author, Scotty has performed in over 20 countries in his 40 year career, including China, Thailand, Japan, Dubai and Jordan.

The program features great jazz gems like “One for Daddy-O” by Nat Adderley, “What Is This Thing Called Love” by Cole Porter and the premiere of a new jazz composition by David Manson.
