As with many songwriters, I find that I express myself best when I’m writing music. Inspired by the new sound that Jon and Paul brought to Nia, I wrote a bunch of new songs and we were ready to record. As artists, we document our growth in our recordings, and we went into the studio in the fall of 2014 with the goal of creating an album with a more produced feel, much like a pop recording rather than a typical jazz album. Paul, Brian and I spent time in the mixing studio for over two years, experimenting and creating sounds that added texture to the recorded tracks. Music by Scott Anderson is Nia Quintet’s third recording, and the first since Jon Dietemyer and Paul Mutzabaugh joined the band. Jon and Paul’s chemistry has an excitement that elevates the band’s sound to a new level. We hope you enjoy our latest labor of love, Music by Scott Anderson.
