It's an unbeatable combination: a full orchestra accompanying a dynamic vocalist in a selection of legendary melodies.
In preparing this CD, Scott enlisted the aid of some highly respected artists:
The arrangements were written by Jerry Toth, a veteran composer/arranger and member of the Boss Brass; and by Berthold Carriere, the Music Director of the Stratford Festival of Canada.
The engineering chores were handled by Phil Sheridan, a veteran producer/engineer, who won the coveted Grammy Award for producing the Boss Brass album All in Good Time.
A 19-piece Big Band, augmented by a 21-piece string section, has provided a sound unrivalled in Canada. Soloists include some internationally-known Canadian musicians, including Moe Koffman, Peter Appleyard, Ed Bickert and Guido Basso.
