A Los Angeles Keyboardist’s Not Lost Weekend in “Last Vegas”

A Nice Rig on a Dream Gig Last June, a weekend recording session of Mark Mothersbaugh’s music for the recently released film “Last Vegas” yielded over 30 cues–just about the entire score to the movie.  I was a memorable project not just because it’s cue after cue of me soloing over slamming grooves with a live band (really fun), but because it was live R n B band on an indie movie. The director, a musician himself, wanted a funky score with an old school vibe, and that’s what Mark gave him, with our help. I saw the movie last…

Keyboard Magazine “Hudson City Suite” Review by Jon Regen

Triple Threat Jazz Composer review-Hudson City Suite

Scott Healy: Triple Threat Jazz Composer / Arranger / Keyboardist …Healy reveals himself to be a composer of serious sonic merit. Keyboardist, composer and arranger Scott Healy surprises with this seductive new release. Best known for his blues-tinged keyboard work in Conan O’Brien’s Basic Cable Band, here Healy reveals himself to be a composer of serious sonic merit. The album blends Healy’s unique brand of boisterous band grooves and horn-laden harmonies, while simultaneously saluting familiar forbears such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Gil Evans.
