Scott Colley, the bassist of choice for such jazz legends as Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Andrew Hill, and Michael Brecker. 

His remarkably empathetic skills, strong melodic sense and improvisational abilities have served him well in many groups over the 30+ years of his musical life. Appearing on more than 200 albums to date.

In the last few years, Scott has recorded CD’s with The New Gary Burton Quartet; The John Scofield Quartet; as well as with his own trio and quartet projects; "The KCB Collective", with Benjamin Koppel and Brian Blade; the new group "Steel House", with pianist Edward Simon and Brian Blade. As well as “Still Dreaming” with Joshua Redman, Ron Myles and Brian Blade.

But it is as a composer and bandleader in his own right that Colley has flourished in recent years, as evidenced by a string of recordings. His newest recording “CURRENT” available on Artistshare/ 2016 includes all new original compositions.
