Lonely crooning excellence for one of the best causes.

About the Album

Pianist Scott Martin has brought together a vibrant group of singer-songwriters and instrumentalists to create a collection of new, original jazz standards. Recorded at the legendary Carriage House in Stamford, Connecticut by Grammy®-winning producer/engineer Jay Newland (Norah Jones, Gregory Porter, John Scofield), Alone at Sunset shimmers with energy and excitement that pull you inside the music, into the performance. Drawing on influences spanning Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner, Scott Martin wrote the music for Alone at Sunset and invited his favorite singers to write lyrics based on their impressions of the songs. The result is an album of a wonderful variety of voices, moods and colors unified by the pianistic and compositional style Scott brings to each piece. Blending a pop esthetic from his early work with Carly Simon, Mariah Carey and cross-over jazz artists like Michael Brecker and Steps Ahead with his love of the classic jazz of the 50s and 60s, Alone at Sunset offers new music that sounds both fresh and timeless.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
