1908-1994
"Raymond Scott was in the forefront of developing electronic music technology and using it commercially as a musician."

The long awaited second collection of Raymond Scott electronica is in the works. The album, titled Three Willow Park, will feature dozens of previously unreleased recordings by Scott from the late 1960s and '70s, most recorded on devices he invented. The collection will pick up where the Y2K 2-cd set Manhattan Research, Inc. left off, serving as a chronological counterpart to MRI (which covered the 1950s and '60s).  The 3-LP collection is tentatively scheduled for release in early 2017 on Basta, and is slated to include a 300-page pdf booklet of archival artifacts.

Scott sheet music covers

We have a sizeable collection of vintage and contemporary printed arrangements of Raymond Scott’s works. These charts are not commercially available, but we provide them in pdf format at no charge to interested musicians, conductors, bandleaders, and academic groups. We have arrangements for piano, sextet (the famous Raymond Scott "Quintette"), and small orchestra (12-15 parts), as well as several expanded arrangements. Some are transcriptions from Scott's recordings, others feature unusual instrumental settings, and some are simply basic lead sheets. There are three works arranged for solo accordion, as well as several titles arranged for piano-four hands by a young Leonard Bernstein. We even have charts for a handful of Scott's electronic works. All charts can be downloaded on this page.
