Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Composer and pianist Scott Healy features trumpeter Tim Hagans and an all-star 11-piece band in this nine-track, fifty-six minute work. Hudson City Suite by the Scott Healy Ensemble is a conceptual, spacious, rich and grooving large ensemble jazz tour de force.


Profoundly beautiful...as if he is writing a soundtrack for the movies in his mind...

Who knew that lurking in the back of the bandstand amidst the nightly frolics on TV's Conan show was an accomplished composer capable of such profoundly moving and meaningful music? While Scott Healy is more likely to show the influence of rock n roll piano pioneers Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard in his duties as resident keyboardist with the Basic Cable Band on the popular and irreverent TBS talk show, he reveals a deep understanding and appreciation for the sophistication and elegance of maestro Duke Ellington on Hudson City Suite.

More than 20 years in the making, this ambitious large ensemble project alludes to Ellingtonia while incorporating elements common to contemporary jazz and classical music along with bracing solos from a stellar crew of modern jazz improvisers. It swings while studiously avoiding the standard formula of most jazz composers.

Scott Healy has created an original suite in the spirit of Ellingtonia based on his own cinematic impressions of a mythical 19th century town (Hudson City actually existed in post-Civil War New Jersey until 1870, when it became part of Jersey City, where he lived during a part of his longstanding tenure on the East Coast before moving to Los Angeles with the Conan show in 2009). Throughout his Hudson City Suite, Healy is mindful of showcasing various small configurations within the larger ensemble.

Hudson City Suite: a portend of things to come, perhaps, for this man who wears many hats and is truly deserving of wider recognition after this triumph, which stands as the crowning achievement in Healy s career to date. --Bill Milkowski - excerpted from the liner notes

There's nothing more you can say about this session other than it's a four star showcase of killer playing unfurling a load of beautiful music.

Not just for mature ears but any muso looking for something they can really sink their teeth into, this can either be a great listening experience or and ear opening education or anything in between. To top it all off, he s not shy about sharing the spotlight with a bunch of the next generation who are busy making names for themselves right now. It s a special joy when a real pro can make it look/sound easy and not rub your nose in it along the way. Killer, classic sounding jazz that would make the masters proud. --Midwest Record

Pianist Scott Healy has been around. In addition to playing piano on Conan, he has recorded with many rock and soul artists as well as composed, arranged and scored for various classical orchestras and ensembles. On Hudson City Suite, all of these talents come together for a nine-track that's rich in brass, time signatures and mood. There are upward of 10 players on each track, and the result is reminiscent of Duke Ellington and the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra. Music that's constantly changing and evolving. --Jazz Wax - jazzwax.com
