ELIXIR at The Freight House presents


- Thursday, May 29th  


ELIXIR at The Freight House, White River Junction’s premier destination for fine dining and live music, presents an evening of impeccable jazz vocals with singer, pianist, and composer DAVID THORNE SCOTT, one of the few young jazz singers on the scene today with both an exceptional voice and a unique personal style, performing with bassist DAVID WESTPHALEN on Thursday, May 29, 2008 from 6:30 to 9:30pm  Call ELIXIR at 802-281-7009 for reservations.  There is no cover charge for the music.


With a voice that is powerful, tender, pure and clear, DAVID THORNE SCOTT bends rhythm and melody into new, expressive shapes in his masterful interpretations of standards and his quirky original tunes.  He draws a wide range of listeners, from first-time to long-time jazz fans, because he swings like Sinatra, scats like the top horn players, and puts over a ballad with emotion.  His album Shade, co-produced by pianist and songwriter Mark Shilansky, was named a Top 5 vocal jazz CD by the Jazz Education Journal.  David’s arrangements for jazz choir are published by Hal Leonard Publishing and UNC Jazz Press.  An Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music, he was awarded a Berklee Faculty Fellowship to study and transcribe classic vocal group arrangements form the 1930s and ‘40s.  David is a member of the acclaimed Boston-based jazz vocal quartet Syncopation and has also shared the stage with such artists as Kevin Mahogany, Jon Secada, Gloria Estefan, Darmon Meader of New York Voices, Richie Cole, and Cheryl Bentyne of the Manhattan Transfer.
