  • Raymond Scott

    A friend of mine dropped of Raymond Scott CD (Microphone Music) for me to listen to. I had never heard of him before.

    When I listened to the recoding I was blown away - it sounded like music from the '30s or '40s but recorded with more modern technology. I thought "this stuff has either been recoded extremely well in the first place or it had been restored - maybe a combination of both"

    Then I did a little research and discovered that he was a pioneer of recording and a fantastic musician - kind of like Les Paul.

    If you have not listened to this music, I highly recommend it for both musical and technical value

    Isn't his stuff great?

    It's clear the guy loved sound and music.

      Carl Stalling adapted a lot of Raymond Scott's music for the Warner Bros cartoons...this is just one of many familiar Scott compositions that wound up in many Looney Tunes classics.

          His bio is fascinating. Directed his band as he composed then committed parts to the composition when he liked what he heard yet allowed freedom to improvise between the musicians.
