One of the highest regarded upright bass players in the world
Scott Colley, the bassist of choice for such jazz legends as Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Andrew Hill, and Michael Brecker. His remarkably empathetic skills, strong melodic sense and improvisational abilities have served him well in groups led by colleagues Chris Potter, Adam Rogers, Brian Blade, David Binney, and Kenny Werner. But it is as a composer and bandleader in his own right that Colley has flourished in recent years, as evidenced by a string of recordings, beginning with his 1996 debut Portable Universe, (Freelance) and continuing with 1997’s This Place (SteepleChase), 1998’s Subliminal (Criss Cross), 2000’s The Magic Line (Arabesque) 2002’s Initial Wisdom (Palmetto), 2007’s Architect of the Silent Moment (CAM jazz), and the 2010-release, Empire (CAM jazz).
Appearing on more than 200 albums to date. He has worked with a variety of musicians from guitarists Bill Frisell, Pat Metheny and Adam Rogers; saxophonists Michael Brecker, Chris Potter and Clifford Jordan; pianists Herbie Hancock, Kenny Werner, Edward Simon; and drummers Brian Blade, Antonio Sanchez, Bill Stewart and Roy Haynes.
