With an impressive approach to Acoustic Jazz/Latin Guitar and a remarkable gift for entertaining, Scott Whitney's music can be found in thousands of homes around the world.
Scott's playing style, which combines a smooth sounding guitar feel with a playful approach toward the instrument, is perfect for organizers looking for a high-end entertainment experience. From small weddings to festivals (and lots-o-stuff in between), Scott's playing will create an atmosphere *exactly* as you'd like.
Performing as a solo guitarist, Scott alone will play a song’s bass, chord and melody lines at the same time. Scott’s technique, fueled by years of performance and recording experience, is further enhanced by studying with master guitarist Jeff Linsky, recognized as among the best solo guitar instrumentalists in the world.
Depending on the venue and gathering type, Scott can/will interact with audience members, including live audience participation (you'd be surprised how many closet musicians are out there!).
Performance volume can be as low as you'd like, ensuring ongoing conversation and no police visits (unless, of course, this is a police function).
**Given enough advance notice, Scott will learn and perform your favorite song to further enhance your event.**
With CD shipments of over THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND (35,000+) CDs, Scott's CD sales has surpassed many major recording artists!
The **ChristmAcoustic** and **ChristmAcoustic II** CDs features twenty tracks of beautiful acoustic solo guitar playing. Performed as an acoustic jazz & classical guitar orchestra, each of these Christmas favorites feature just one guitar playing all bass, chord, and melodic parts at the same time!
While listening, you'll hear a combination of classical, jazz, and latin-inspired styles that the Bay Area's largest newspaper, the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS selected as one of the top holiday CDs of the year, and that the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER strongly recommended to its readers.
Scott's newest CD, **Guitjazzathon**, is now available on Spinario Records.
The eleven works on this CD offer a sweeping example of Scott's varied interest in guitar playing/composition. Tastes of funk and classical guitar, along with a steady stream of soothing jazz, join an impressive group of latin/bossa-nova/spanish-styled songs.
Beginning in late June 2003, radio stations (Smooth Jazz, NPR, College, etc.) have begun 'spinning' tracks from the Guitjazzathon CD, already eliciting positive feedback from listeners throughout the country.
Finally, adding to a roster of artists that include Al Dimeola, The Gypsy Kings, Steve Stevens, and India Arie, Scott Whitney is an official endorsing artists for The Godin Guitar Company.
