Raymond Scott has a well-deserved reputation as an electronic pioneer and the creator of the classic Soothing Sounds For Baby, but it is important to remember his more immediately popular work, which remains fantastic. This Time with Strings, recorded with Scott’s Orchestra, is a fine set of luscious dance band, soundtrack and jazz music. Reissued by the Basta label.
Raymond Scott & The Secret 7
Raymond Scott has a well-deserved reputation as an electronic pioneer and the creator of the classic Soothing Sounds For Baby, but it is important not to forget that he was also a serious jazz player back in the day, working with his group The Secret 7, an assembly of New York’s finest whose identities were concealed at the time. This reissue of Unexpected offers either a mono mix on CD or a stereo mix on vinyl.
