Guitarist/Composer Scott DuBois’s music is described by Jazz Times as “fascinating”, by Cadence Magazine as “exceptional…faultless, a perfect gem” and by AllAboutJazz New York as “captivating music for the meditative thinker”. He has recorded two CDs with David Liebman for the historic Soul Note record label, Monsoon (2004), Tempest (2006), and three CDs for New York’s Sunnyside Records, Banshees (2008), Black Hawk Dance (2010), Landscape Scripture (2012). His most recent CD, Landscape Scripture, was named one of the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2012 by National Public Radio.
In addition to being part of the New York City jazz/improvised music scene for the past sixteen years, DuBois has toured extensively with his quartet and many internationally renowned musicians performing at jazz/improvised music festivals and clubs throughout North America and Europe. In 2005 DuBois was also selected as a Semi-Finalist in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. New York City’s Downtown Music Gallery wrote that Scott is, “one of the best and most adventurous guitarists in New York City” and Spain’s largest jazz media source, Tomajazz.com, calls Scott, “one of the best modern jazz guitarists.”
The Scott DuBois Quartet, featuring Gebhard Ullmann, Thomas Morgan, and Kresten Osgood, performs DuBois’s unique, forward-thinking original compositions with an intense focus on group improvisation, interaction, dynamics, and the unpredictable.
