Raymond Scott

September 16, 2020

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Raymond Scott, a 20th century composer and inventor of electronic instruments. He started out as a pianist with the CBS house band, and with his six-piece “quintette” performed pieces such as “Summertime,” “Stardust,” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Raymond Scott Conducts… from 1958 is a beautiful vocal-free collection of jazz standards from the time. In the ‘90s he made synth music called Soothing Sounds for Baby, which may also prove useful for adults.
