The Brass Junkies Episode 45: Jeff Scott of Imani Winds
Jeff Scott, composer and horn player with Imani Winds, joins Andrew & Lance to discuss how he and the group got started.
Imani Winds has charted new ground in the medium for 19 years and Jeff explains how they found their mission. Jeff covers his development as a composer, the need for entrepreneurial skills, how they set up residencies, marketing and what it was like to replace a long-standing group member.
We also relive the fun we had back in the day when Boston Brass and Imani Winds joined forces onstage in an evening of music by Miles Davis. Oh, and Jeff thought Jens was a trombone player. You can’t make this stuff up.
