Scott Colley, the bassist of choice for jazz legends Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Andrew Hill, and Michael Brecker, makes his Firehouse 12 debut as a leader for the final concert of the 2011 Spring Jazz Series. His sensitive playing, strong melodic sense and improvisational agility have served him well in groups led by colleagues Chris Potter, Adam Rogers, Brian Blade, David Binney, and Kenny Werner. But it is as a composer and bandleader that Colley has flourished in recent years, including his much praised 2007 "Architect of the Silent Moment" (CAM jazz), and the acclaimed 2010 release, "Empire" (CAM jazz). This concert will feature music from his most recent album and an all-star supporting group of Kevin Hays on piano and the incomparable Bill Stewart on drums.

Colley's playing and writing often feature a bluesy, folk-like texture that belies the complexity beneath. Nate Chinen of the New York Times notes "the bassist Scott Colley plays with a warm, singing tone and a nimble touch when briskness is required - most of his bass lines are asymmetrical, hypnotic and harmonically static - while his ensemble floats purposefully above him."
