Music Interests: Scott has had a love of smooth and contemporary jazz for about 20 years. He frequently listens to ABC Jazz and an assortment of internet jazz streams. "I used to frequent a jazz club in Sydney called the Soup Kitchen in the late 90's. It was an intimate venue, and I loved watching the individual skills of each musician close up. Jazz, for me, is sometimes an upredicatable journey and other times pure relaxation. I just love it".
