King For a Day honors 8 years of Kevin Scott’s Tuesday night jams

At just 29 years of age, bassist/producer Kevin Scott has become one of the most respected names in Atlanta's booming jazz and retro-funk/soul scene. At any given time, the barreling bass player can be found playing all over town with various groups of various genres, including the Wolf Pack, Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics, and Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.), sometimes on the same night. But for the last eight years his steadiest gig has been his Tuesday night jam sessions, which found a stable home at Elliott Street Deli & Pub a few years ago, where he holds court for his weekly jazz jams. Tonight, the Pub honors Scott with King for a Day, an all night music fest with multiple stages and a treasure trove of music, including Frank Barham, Whispers of the Night (featuring Benjamin Shirley and Majid Araim), Currency, Christopher Alpiar Trio, and many more. Of course, the jam will be an ongoing highlight.
