Keyboard Magazine “Hudson City Suite” Review by Jon Regen
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. JON REGEN September, 2013
