Scott Lichtman

Jazz/fusion keyboardist & autograph collector in Stamford CT.

About Me

I enjoy playing jazz piano and keyboards - usually in cool, modal, standards, fusion, jazz+pop cover genres - and in casual pickup formats - jams, open mics, restaurants - here in southern Connecticut.

I’m also a collector of jazz autographs from all periods. Dozens include Dizzy, Duke, Herbie, Chick, Wynton, McLaughlin, Benson, McFerrin, Esperanza, Cyrille, etc. The biggest thrill here is in catching a current jazz idol just before or after their concert for a chat and signature.

I earlier ran a Fairfield CT/Westchester NY bi-county-wide meetup bringing jazz listeners to exclusive performance opportunities like house performances and pre-concert talks. I'd be happy to see local performances with other fans… and even write joint reviews for All About Jazz!

My Jazz Story

I play casual jazz/fusion keyboards. Way back when, after given a family choice to either become a computer scientist or a musician, I chose "both" and split my college days at MIT and at Berklee. I see the iPad as a powerful, always handy musical 'instrument' - so many sophisticated apps to work with, midi, samples, drums, bass, etc. My #1 desert island disk has to be First Circle, by Pat Metheny. After following him since his first Group album, I had the memorable occasion of attending his master class week one summer .
