O’s Notes: Scott has a unique jazz-fusion groove. He developed his style playing with many contemporary jazz stars, some R&B players and the legendary Jaco Pastorius. For this effort Scott invites top talent including Grant Green Jr. (g) and Charnett Moffett (b). The music is varied between neobop/fusion and a few R&B tunes. Among the best are “Nett” featuring a Moffett in a fierce exchange with Brown. Drummer Amit Shamir holds it together. These are all originals except the vocals that were co-written with Paulette McWilliams, notably “Can’t Live Without”. Norbert Marius (b) does a fine job on “My Son From New York” which is dedicated to Jaco. Overall we found the Flavors to be rich and tasty!
