"Herb Scott is a young, soulful powerhouse on  alto saxophone. As a bandleader, his style often veers into the  over-sweetened terrain of smooth jazz, but no matter what he plays, his  fleetness and conviction are undeniable." - Capitol Bop

D.C.  Native and saxophonist Herb Scott is a star on the Washington, D.C.  Jazz scene. While studying at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts  under the award-winning educator Davey Yarborough, he performed with  renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and Jazz pianist Herbie Hancock. Herb  studied Jazz Studies at Michigan State University under Jazz  legend Rodney Whitaker and Professor Diego Rivera, and toured with the  MSU Jazz Band. His career includes performances at the White  House, Dizzy’s Coca Cola-Club in New York, the Lincoln Center, the world  famous Baker’s Keyboard Lounge in Detroit, the Kennedy Center for the  Performing Arts, Universal Studios Orlando, Constitution Hall, the  Library of Congress, the Detroit Jazz Fest, the East Lansing Jazz Fest,  the DC Jazz Fest.

Herb's  first album as a band leader, “Introducing Herb Scott on Alto  Saxophone, a NU-Jazz Collective”, was released in 2011. In 2015, Herb  started the weekly Capitol Hill Jazz Jam session at Mr.  Henry's Restaurant, where Grammy winner Roberta Flack once held her  residency. Herb completed his first International Residency at the St.  Regis Hotel in Doha, Qatar before returning to the U.S. and headlining  at the Legendary Blues Alley Jazz and Supper Club in the fall of 2016.
