About Scat Cats
A group that covers all the great music of the late ‘20s and early ‘30s (sometimes overlooked by the bebop post-war combos) and the great Big Band tradition of the ‘30s and ‘40s. Vocalist Carole Crawford and jazz stride pianist Paul Asaro, often joined by reedman John Otto, make up this talented group known as the Scat Cats.

Their repertoire features a particular style of American jazz, based on the great 1920s and ’30s jazz piano style of Fats Waller. This type of jazz in the 1920s and early 1930s was fertile ground for the great jazz trumpet/cornet genius Bix Beiderbecke and also the early vocals of Bing Crosby and the Paul Whiteman Band and the Rhythm Boys.

This is happy jazz with a bounce that isn’t heard from most jazz groups today.
