Tom Scott & the L.A. Express
Jazz/Blues
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre
Thursday, February 27, 2020


Tom Scott is a celebrated saxophonist, composer and arranger whose inspired, dynamic solos and masterful compositions have graced countless hits. With over 30 solo recordings and over 500 as guest artist to his name, this legendary saxman has garnered 3 Grammy Awards and 14 nominations and has worked with such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Carol King, Paul McCartney, the Blues Brothers and Steely Dan.

Encompassing a combination of jazz, funk and R&B, Tom Scott & the L.A. Express rose to great acclaim in the 70s. Playing with pulsating energy and heart, Tom Scott & the LA Express is extraordinarily eclectic, cutting edge and cool as ever.

The concert will feature Billy Valentine, a singer-songwriter whose varied career has led him to collaborations with such greats as Will Jennings, the Neville Brothers and Ray Charles.

“Scott’s fluency, tonal control and in-the-pocket enthusiasm delivered authentically exciting modern jazz, with tumbling phrases, repeated riffs and soulful licks played with poise and purpose.” Financial Times, London
