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. Check out Healy’s “Summit Avenue Conversation” for an example of this triple threat in action….

One More Rock Organ Lesson from Keyboard Magazine

Rock Organ Credibility on the B-3 Here’s another lesson I did for Jon Regen and Keyboard Magazine back in 2011 about my favorite topic, the mighty Hammond B-3. I play so much rock organ on “Conan”, and these are some of my tricks, as best I could describe them–so much of this style is by feel and hard to explain. I think I recorded the audio examples on the set during a union break.

Again with the Linear Harmony? Too dry….

Linear Harmony #5: Block and Layered Counterpoint This is a new blog post at professorscosco – it’s dry as a bone but you composers will get the point. If you want an enjoyable read and fun content go read the Huffington Post. Click for the original article. I’m revising a piece for my ensemble, perhaps for a recording in the near or far future. I’ve used “Take it Inside” in many posts because it’s a good example of linear harmony. It’s also free and I have the score. During the process of taking this tune apart I’ve seen many missed…

The Score: Jazz Scores after the Jazz Age After having watched Mike Hammer, My Gun is Quick (1957) on youtube, the interwebs led me to the below post from Hearing the Movies, a really cool blog by Jim Buhler, David Neumeyer and Rob Deemer. The opening credit sequence is the first installment of Marlin Skiles’ jazz score: a really cool big band piece, with a drum solo (what! say it isn’t so!)…turns out that Skiles was a prolific composer and arranger, and his jazz-noire score for this film rivals my all time favorite, Elmer Bernstein and Chico Hamilton’s Sweet Smell of…
