Scott Paddock Jazz

With a fresh new perspective on contemporary jazz, Scott Paddock has redefined the sound of the modern saxophonist. His soulful combination of jazz and funk create an explosion of high energy grooves that will make you fall in love with the saxophone all over again.
Scott’s resume covers the musical gamut of performance, often times pushing the perceived limits of the saxophone into unchartered territory. His signature sound could best be described as an aggressively articulated, overtone infused, high energy funk style that is on full display in his original projects. Scott leads a contemporary jazz group, is in high demand as a sideman in the Baltimore/DC area, and has been onstage with everything from rock bands & DJs to symphonies.
