Violinist Scott Tixier is an award-winning recording artist. A true innovator on his instrument and is quickly becoming known as the new voice of jazz violin. He has earned international recognition for his playing. Grammy Award winning bassist Marcus Miller says that Tixier "is making an international name for himself. I heard him in France and was immediately struck by his individuality and his sound.“ Guitarist Pat Metheny says, "[Scott] has found a place for himself within the elite community of New York jazz musicians, no small feat."
Considered by Jean-luc Ponty as "the best violinist of his generation." Tixier will be playing his new music for a unique concert with his twin brother at Blue Note NY.
"Tixier is not only a remarkable improviser, but also a cunning contemporary jazz composer."
