From a Rhinestone Cowboy to a Dandy in the Underworld, from Bad Girls to a Rich Girl to I’m A Fool For You Girl… from Sara Smile to Angela to Smokey to Candi, and I’ll throw in Peaches & Herb and Boz to boot…you’ve grooved to Scott Edwards!
When Michael Henderson spilt from the employment of the former Stevland Hardaway Morris to work with a newly electrified Miles Davis, a young Atlanta cat named Scott Edwards stepped in and took over the bass chair and thus began a stellar career as a first call sideman session player.
A chameleonic Fender Precision wielding James Jamerson disciple, Scott’s incredible body of work spans every genre of pop music embracing rock, smooth jazz, funk, soul, disco, rhythm and blues, fusion, and permutations thereof. Right now, as you’re reading this, Scott’s bass passages are resonating somewhere on radio, streaming services, vinyl, 8-track, cassette, and hip-hop artists’ turntables. I can’t fathom how many times Scott’s been sampled….
Take a deep breath and dig Scott Edwards’ select playlist of hits!
