Marilyn Scott

When Marilyn Scott performed her first gig at the age of 15, little did she know that along the road of her career she’d be collaborating with some of the great jazz powerhouses. But it wasn’t until years later in the Bay Area when Tower of Power’s Emilio Castillo noticed her rich, sultry voice and decided to hire her to do backing vocals for the group. She never looked back. Since then, and several solo albums later, she is still in demand as a writer who has worked with the best - Spyro Gyra, The Yellowjackets, George Duke, Bob James, Jimmy Haslip and Russell Ferrante. Her most recent release, 2008s “Every Time We Say Goodbye”, is a testament to her love of classic jazz. Recorded in New York City, the project has an intimate flair recorded with top NY jazzers. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome a perennial LA talent, Marilyn Scott.
