Phil Palombi on Scott LaFaro’s Prescott

2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the untimely death of jazz great Scott LaFaro. Phil Palombi, author of the Scott La Faro transcription book, has recorded a tribute CD to this bass legend, which is now available. This recording features piano great (and former roommate of Scott’s) Don Friedman and Bill Evans alumnus Eliot Zigmund on drums.For this recording, RE:Person I Knew – A Tribute To Scott LaFaro, Phil was granted the honor of recording the entire CD with a very special instrument: “I was granted the immense honor of the loan of Scott LaFaro’s actual Prescott bass. Yes, THE bass that he used on the Village Vanguard recordings. I will forever be grateful to Helene LaFaro-Fernandez and Barrie Kolstein for this opportunity!”
