Scott Colley


Tappan, NY

Scott Colley's stature as a leading bassist in the field of improvised music is well known and easily measured. He's been called "one of the leading bassists of our postbop era, and a composer-bandleader of quietly serious resolve" by The New York Times, while musical colleagues, like saxophonist Joshua Redman, praise him for being "one of the most musical bassists playing today." To me, he seems to have this natural, intuitive, empathic sense of how to bring the most out of the other musicians and the music he's playing.

Colley is a three-time Grammy nominee and has performed on over 200 recordings, eight of those as bandleader and composer.
