Hudson City Suite-Scott Healy Ensemble
Hudson City Suite – A Short Film by Gabriel Judet-Weinshel:

In the few short weeks since the worldwide release of Hudson City Suite , this new CD by the 11-piece Scott Healy Ensemble has received nothing but praise from the critics. Scott and the recording are the subject of an “Indie Life” profile piece by Shawn Brady in the March, 2013 issue of Downbeat Magazine.

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

Featuring Tim Hagans on trumpet, Scott on piano, and an all-star group of LA’s finest, this fifty-six minute work was recorded April 30th and May 1st, 2012, at The Bridge in Glendale, CA. Nine original tracks are thematically linked, the music is spacious, rich, distinctly modernist yet reverent to the tradition.

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