Scott Robinson (Matt Munisteri Band),

saxophone

Scott Robinson and his unusual reed and brass instruments have been heard throughout 55 nations and 250
recordings with a cross-section of jazz greats representing nearly every imaginable style of the music, including
Bob Brookmeyer, Tom Harrell, Frank Wess, Maria Schneider, Anthony Braxton, Joe Lovano, Ron Carter, Ella
Fitzgerald, Ruby Braff and Roscoe Mitchell. Primarily a tenor saxophonist, Scott once placed directly below the
great Sonny Rollins in the DownBeat Readers Poll. As a composer, his works range from solo performance
pieces to chamber and symphonic works. He has been a writer of essays and liner notes, an invited speaker
before the Congressional Black Caucus, and a Jazz Ambassador for the State Department. Scott releases highly
adventurous music on his ScienSonic Laboratories label, and his Doctette (celebrating pulp adventure hero Doc
Savage) gave what The Boston Globe called "the most quirky and delightful set" of the 2015 Newport Jazz
Festival.
