Scott Read - Sincerely 1981 Lp

Scott Read is a lesser known crooner of jazz music. In the 60s he collaborated with Larry Mako and they appeared six nights a week on Blue Grass nightclub from Cleveland, Ohio. He released his debut album entitled "Splendor At The Grass" on Warwick Records from Cleveland. The album includes some live performances from Blue Grass nightclub. It was produced by DJ Nate Kay.

There are not many info about Scott Read between the live album in the mid 60s and the other album which was released in 1981. The album "Sincerely" of 1981 was released on his own label Scott Sound Productions.

It was recorded at The Recording Connection, Beachwood, Ohio. The musicians were Al Ferrara on keyboards, Bob Frazer on guitar, Steve Stanziano on bass, Jim Ventura on drums, Dave Robinson and Arnie Rosenberg on percusion. Becky Goldstein, Tampa Lann and Diane Green on backing vocals. Arranged by John Brinson and Jim Reiger. Produced by Anie Rosenberg.

I have chosen two tracks entitled "Keep Me In Your Heart Forever" and "Let's Try Love Again".

I must note that the songs "Fallin In Love With You Baby" and "Darlin" were released as a single in 1981 on Scott Sound Records.

Note: The above posted tracks are not played in full
