Scott ReedNORMAN SCOTT REED, known by his friends as Scott, sings of the many faces and moods of love and the loneliness which is often the price paid for losing one's way to another's heart.  He also sings of the bright side of love . . . the swinging, driving happy "I'm in love" mood.  There are haunting lover's lament renditions that are so memorable in this album plus his own compositions BLUE LOVE, OUT OF MY MIND and KNOW IT ALL BLUES.

"A relaxed, sensitive and intelligent interpretation of lyrics combined with trigger timing, perfect pitch and impeccable phrasing," is one critic's praise of Scott's voice and talent.  "He has a way of bending notes that are so fitting for jazz vocals and of holding a note long enough to give it the proper place and meaning," says another.

For years, Scott was one of New York City's featured headliners as a Pianist/Singer.  His engagements were often long and in "reservations only" supper clubs.  He made Earl Wilson's column and had the honor of being featured weekly in the prestigious New Yorker Magazine.

MELODIC MOOD is the result of a solo and truly unique endeavor.  Scott has composed all arrangements and played all musical parts on a digital synthesizer in real-time recording using a multi-track sequencer.  Most of the arrangements are big production sounding with rich string and horn accompaniment.  He did the vocals and completely engineered the project through the final mix and digital master.  There were no drum machines, preset rhythms, sampling or use of other people's ideas.  Scott insisted on an "honest" album that was entirely his.  The result is a large production work where the arranger/musician (Scott) and the vocalist (Scott) have a perfect blending.
