Shade 04:43
Everybody wants her No one says he’s got enough She’ll bring you up By coolin’ you down Make you feel just right Like a newborn babe Everybody needs her Everybody under the sun We work hard, play hard And when the day is done We find shade When you find it You’ll know why Everyone wants her You’ll know too If you don’t mind it You’ll run dry Everyone wants her You’ll know too So if you think you’ve got her Don’t ever think you’ve got enough You won’t know where Your feelings have gone Fade just like the night Into a new day
Small Feats 06:06
Little things mean a lot When you try to reveal How you feel About life, what you do, and who you are There’s a long way to go But not far When you know that you can do anything Long as the steps are small Don’t you care at all About the time that it takes Or your heart as it breaks in two Don’t you know it’s true That when you discover the way that completes you Then giant steps become Small Feats
I’ll see you my friend, I’m tired of you buttin’ in With all of those things you say. And though it’s been fun, More fun than a barrel full of monkeys, I think it’s time we go all on our own way. So put on the brakes, I pray for both of our sakes You find what you need today. And whether you’re flush, Or whether you’re runnin’ out of luckies, You find the time to get out of your own way. It’s just the middle of the story, Go on and get a little glory, I know that you can make it somehow. Sometimes the last ain’t the best, There’s always somethin’ better, I guess, So I will just be takin’ my bow, now, I’ll see you my friend, I’m tired of you buttin’ in With all of those things you say. And though it’s been fun, More fun than a barrel full of monkeys, I think it’s time we go all on our own way.
Walking downtown Down clowns find you Look all around No one’s round you Happy, smiling, scary Clearly They are out to get just you But then you cry out loud, You’re hoping somebody will answer your call Though nobody comes, the clowns are gone The coast is clearing up and you’re not feeling so small And keep on a-walking Hearing footsteps Right behind you Don’t look back the clowns are there!
I See You 04:13
I see you I feel you I breathe you Deep in my imagination you’re wild with wanting me too When are you coming over, Showing me all that you like to do? I’ll hear you Revere you And steer you I will show you a moment alone when there’s only you When will you ask me over Letting me make your wishes come true?


The Jazz Education Journal chose "Shade" as one of their Top 5 albums of the year (along with Mark Murphy, Andy Bey, Judy Silvano, and Kitty Margolis). From the review:
On my first audition of David Thorne Scott, I was knocked out. The jazz singer/arranger is also a composer/lyricist who is a welcome change from the more predictable vocal jazzers in the competitive vocal milieu. Scott's voice is refreshingly different; he explores, discovers, and shares resulting creative approaches to melodies and doesn't fail to swing. His valuation of the import of melody and controlled use of dynamics is crystal clear. There is excitement in his shifts in tempo, appealing motifs, and phrasing at intriguing junctures, all executed in a pure sweet tone. These traits are funneled into his occasionally playful improvisations and dramatic story telling. Besides his own five originals, there are the familiar "Just One of Those Things," "Have You Met Miss Jones," "April in Paris," "Dancing on the Ceiling," and an impressive mood-setting of the ballad "For All We Know." His bandmates, like Scott, are Berklee College faculty members - pianist Mark Shilansky, bassist John Funkhouser, drummer Jon Hazilla, and saxophonist Daryl Lowery. We're sure to hear more from and about David Thorne Scott.

David Thorne Scott Boston, Massachusetts

“At a time of great conflict in our country – when words often fail us – music has the power to bridge divides. With his latest album Thornewood, released earlier this month, David Thorne Scott explores the intersection of Jazz and Americana, city and country, instrumentation and lyrics to create lush compositions and covers that are unifying, and healing, in their beauty.” - Laurie Fanelli ... more
