Tom Scott - Honeysuckle Breeze (Digitally Remastered) CD [Impulse]Before he developed into a star composer and arranger, Tom Scott was an ambitious 19 year-old saxophonist looking for his big break in 1967. The opportunity came when legendary jazz label Impulse paired Scott with 9-piece vocal group The California Dreamers and allowed the young musician to take the helm as a band leader, with The Honeysuckle Breeze as the spectacular result.

This rare and long out-of-print album features Scott leading a stellar lineup of sessions players - Bill Plummer (sitar), Glen Campbell (guitar) and Carol Kaye (bass) among them-through warm, smooth versions of songs by The Beatles ("She's Leaving Home"), Donovan ("Mellow Yellow"), Joan Baez ("North") and Jefferson Airplane ("Today"), which many will recognize from it's sampling in the Pete Rock & CL Smooth classic "T.R.O.Y."

Resurrected, refurbished and remastered by the talented folks at Get On Down, Scott's debut record sparkles with a high quality digital audio transfer from the original master tapes and is packaged in a gatefold paste-on case with a dust sleeve and obi strip. Don't let this "Breeze" pass you by.
