French Jazz Violinist Scott Tixier
The New York City-based Tixier, born in 1986 in Montreuil, France has performed with some of the leading lights in jazz and music legends from Stevie Wonder to NEA jazz master Kenny Barron; as a leader as well. Tixier's acclaimed Sunnyside album "Cosmic Adventure" saw the violinist performing with an all-star band "taking the jazz world by storm" as the All About Jazz Journal put it. The Village Voice called the album "Poignant and Reflective" while The New York Times declared "Mr. Tixier is a violinist whose sonic palette, like his range of interests, runs open and wide; on his new album, "Cosmic Adventure," he traces a line through chamber music, Afro-Cuban groove and modern jazz."When JazzTimes said"Tixier has a remarkably vocal tone, and he employs it with considerable suspense. Cosmic Adventure is a fresh, thoroughly enjoyable recording!"
