The Jazztice League is a brand new ensemble Scott specifically assembled for this project. Comprised of players he has worked with over the years that he found exciting and inspiring to play with.

“I wanted to put a dream band together!”

…and what a dream band it is! Joining Scott, who played tenor sax on this outing, is an elite group of Canadian jazz masters. Featuring Juno Award winner Mike Rud on Guitar (Herb Ellis, Kenny Wheeler), David Restivo on piano (Boss Brass, Marc Jorden), Nick Fraser on drums (Tony Malaby, Michael Moore), and legendary bassist and Juno Award winner Dave Young (Oscar Peterson, Lenny Breau).

Scott’s compositions pay homage to tradition and yet are full of surprises. The eight compositions on “Dream Logic Project” were composed specifically for this ensemble with each taking the listener on a different journey Moody strait eight funk, strait up swing, latin swing, soulful soul jam, driving three feel, and a beautiful final statement. Marshall’s compositions pay homage to tradition and yet are full of surprises. Masterfully recorded by Jeremy Darby at Canterbury studio this recording has the sound and feel of a live performance with each musician getting a chance to shine, and shine they do!
