Hudson City Suite by the 10-piece Scott Healy Ensemble

Nominated for a 2014 Grammy® Award

Best Instrumental Composition: “Koko on the Boulevard”

Hudson City Suite-Scott Healy EnsembleFeaturing Tim Hagans on trumpet, Scott on piano, and an all-star group of LA’s finest, this fifty-six minute work comprises nine thematically-linked original pieces, which together form a true jazz suite. The music is spacious, rich, distinctly modernist yet reverent to the tradition.

Composer Scott Healy and this critically-acclaimed ensemble CD were the subject of an “Indie Life” profile piece by Shawn Brady in the March, 2013 issue of Downbeat Magazine, in addition to stellar print and online reviews.

Hudson City Suite by the Scott Healy Ensemble is a conceptual and grooving large ensemble jazz tour de force.

What the critics are saying about Hudson City Suite:

Scott Healy’s Hudson City Suite unites past and present musically as well as conceptually, bridging traditional big-band swing with lithe jazz modernism. — Shaun Brady, Downbeat Magazine
Profoundly beautiful… — Bill Milkowski

Healy has conjured up a captivating, amazingly varied and colorful range of sounds and moods with just a tentet here, showing that less can be more in jazz ensembles. — George Kanzler, NYC Jazz Record
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 — Midwest Record Review
