Hi Mr. Hamilton,
I,m Alp from Turkey and I'm 16 years old jazz saxophone player and I'm playing for 8 years. I studied jazz theory and improvisation techniques in a music school in Istanbul. Recently I'm listening to your recordings and in a very near future I'm planing to come to New York for a couple of days. I wonder if you are interested to make some private saxophone lessons with me in New York. Hope to hear from you soon..
Best Regards,
Alp Insel

Your solos..do you write solos out? I was a student with George Garzone and he would have us write out solo's and various solo patterns. DO you do this or have you just got so much in your mental library that you can just call up solos and have your ears take over. How about pitch - I talked with Harry Allen one day he said he had perfect pitch. Do you have this if so is it a burden? I notice that you adjust your mouth piece a lot during a show, is it intonation or are you not happy with how the air flows? I have so many questions! Sorry to bore you .

Hi Scott I would like to thank you for the great evening last Tuesday at The Avenue in Breda. Especially the moment in the break that I spoke to you in person and you signed a few records that my father left me after he died in 1985. It was a special moment for me because he already was a big fan of you and he never could see in person. And there I stood it was completely crazy.
I will never forget that moment. I hope to hear you play more often in one or other occasion here in the Netherlands

Scott, I wanted to be certain to share this with you since your interpretation of Skylark was what first brought you to my attention, and is what I very much tried to emulate in this two-year multi-media wedding anniversary present for my wife:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uH_pBlFA8Fc&t=7s

And if you're curious to know more about how I discovered you and your version of it:

I randomly clicked on a "tenor sax giants" video on YouTube one night when I was about to fall asleep a couple of years back - while listening to music on my headphones. I wasn't watching it, just listening. Until the part where you are playing Skylark started playing in it...

I still can't quite put my finger on why your sound spoke to me that night, and continues to do so, though. Out of all the other great players in that video (Hawkins, Webster, Getz, Dexter, Sonny Rollins etc) that are much more well known than you, but it was you playing Skylark in that video that made me open my eyes and see who it was playing, and then start listening to more of your stuff.

And this video I've done for my wife, well, one of the licks that stood out to me most that you play in your version is what you play here:

https://youtu.be/N3ghDUHnbm8?t=5m30s

I love the pattern you play and then how you play down the horn chromatically - and then hit the low Bb - which to me serves as kind of a period at the end of the musical sentence you had just played.

That's why I worked that specific phrase into my version as best I could. I never got it where I can play it as cleanly and in time as you do on my own, nor am I able to hit the low Bb with the right amount of finesse yet. To me, in my version, it's a bit too honky and/or loud. But I did get it close and can play it much better when I'm playing along with you as kind of a guide. Here is a direct link to that same part with me playing it:

https://youtu.be/uH_pBlFA8Fc?t=4m6s

So yeah, your sound /style is a big inspiration to me and is something I will continue to try and emulate as I gain experience in regards to playing ballads.

...and I wish you toured here in the United States more. I'd love to hear you perform live and meet you at some point.

Thank you so much for the inspiration, and I hope you enjoy and appreciate my effort to emulate your style in the video, even though I ran out of time to work more of your licks into it, and improve upon my sound/intonation before having to record it.

I'll keep on working on it!

That was a gem of a concert last night! The little theatre in Marcialla was a perfect setting, and your creativity, virtuosity and swing was a delight - we couldn't keep still! The ensemble playing and rapport with the other players was wonderful and with such musicianship. Thank you so much.

Funny to take up jazz improvisation in my sixties, and after three years, 2000 hours of practice, and a zillion hours of listening, the pro who resonates with my musical sensibilities the most is from my town. All the Best to you Scott.

Hi Scott - I'm a 70-something tenor player whose goal is to play anywhere close to the way you play. Like you, I love backing singers. I have been reluctant to travel by air with my horn for fear of what the airlines will force me to do with my horn. Do you have a special case for your horn so you can travel Europe and the states? Also, how do you handle repairs on the road? I understand that your bookings in the states are rare these days, but would love to see you in the Pacific Northwest some day.

Cheers,
Bill
