NEW ALBUM

CosmicAdventureTixier.jpg
“Listening to Scott's playing makes me very happy because the future of modern jazz violin is in very good hands. He displays a musical maturity in this album which is surprising considering his young age, drawing inspiration from deep inside and not rehashing what others have played before him, which makes his style original. He is surrounded by great players, all top musicians who help make this album a strong musical statement.” - Jean Luc Ponty

About

One of his generation’s extraordinary talents, Scott Tixier has made a name for himself as a violinist-composer of wide-ranging ambition, individuality and drive — “the future of jazz violin” in the words of Downbeat Magazine and “A remarkable improviser and a cunning jazz composer” in those of NPR.

The New York City-based Tixier, born in 1986 in Montreuil, France has performed with some of the leading lights in jazz and music legends from Stevie Wonder to NEA jazz master Kenny Barron; as a leader as well. Tixier’s acclaimed Sunnyside album “Cosmic Adventure” saw the violinist performing with a all star band “taking the jazz world by storm” as the All About Jazz Journal put it. The Village Voice called the album “Poignant and Reflective” while The New York Times declared “Mr. Tixier is a violinist whose sonic palette, like his range of interests, runs open and wide; on his new album, “Cosmic Adventure,” he traces a line through chamber music, Afro-Cuban groove and modern jazz.” When JazzTimes said"Tixier has a remarkably vocal tone, and he employs it with considerable suspense. Cosmic Adventure is a fresh, thoroughly enjoyable recording!"

Tixier studied classical violin at the conservatory in Paris. Following that, he studied improvisation as a self-educated jazz musician. He has been living in New York for over a decade where he performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including, Stevie Wonder, Roger Waters, Kenny BarronJohn Legend, Ed Sheeran, Charnett Moffett, Cassandra Wilson, Chris Potter, Christina Aguilera, CommonAnthony BraxtonJoss StoneGladys KnightNatalie Cole, Ariana Grande, Wayne Brady, Gerald CleaverTigran Hamasyan and many others

Grammy Award winning bassist Marcus Miller says that Tixier "is making an international name for himself. I heard him in France and was immediately struck by his individuality and his sound.“ Guitarist Pat Metheny says, "[Scott] has found a place for himself within the elite community of New York jazz musicians, no small feat." In an interview with the All About Jazz in 2010, violinist Mark Feldman called Scott "really up-and-coming and very talented." And Jean-Luc Ponty said "I have heard Scott's recordings, seen his live performances and I think that he stands above the crowd of current jazz violinists around the world."

In addition to performing in and out the jazz world, Tixier has been appearing in the house band on most of the TV shows in America such as The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on NBC, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as well as the previous format with David Letterman, The Late Night with Seth Meyers, America Got Talents for 3 seasons.
