Guitarist/Composer and ACT recording artist Scott DuBois’s music is described by Jazz Times as “fascinating,” by Cadence Magazine as “exceptional…faultless, a perfect gem,” and by The New York City Jazz Record as “captivating music for the meditative thinker.” He has recorded two albums with David Liebman for the Soul Note record label, Monsoon (2005) and Tempest (2007), and three albums for the Sunnyside record label, Banshees (2008), Black Hawk Dance (2010), and Landscape Scripture (2012). Landscape Scripture was named one of the “Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2012″ by National Public Radio In 2015 DuBois signed with the ACT record label and released his sixth album, Winter Light, which was named as one of the best “Albums of the Year” by the New York City Jazz Record, one of the “Top 25 Discs of 2015″ by New York’s Downtown Music Gallery, and one of the “Albums of the Year” in Germany’s Fono Forum classical and jazz magazine.
In addition to being part of the New York City jazz scene for the past two decades, DuBois has toured extensively with his quartet and many internationally renowned musicians performing at jazz 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, calls Scott “one of the best modern jazz guitarists.”
The Scott DuBois Quartet, featuring Gebhard Ullmann on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Thomas Morgan on bass, and Kresten Osgood on drums, performs DuBois’s unique masterfully-crafted original compositions with dynamic group improvisation and interaction, creating massive, colorful landscapes and a spiritual intensity that cuts straight to the heart.
