Scott DuBois (born April 27, 1978) is an American jazz guitarist and composer.

Career[edit]

DuBois studied at the Manhattan School of Music. He recorded two albums featuring saxophonist David Liebman, Monsoon (2004) and Tempest (2006), for the Soul Note record label, three albums, Banshees (2008), Black Hawk Dance (2010) and Landscape Scripture (2012), for Sunnyside Records, and one album, Winter Light (2015), for the ACT record label. Landscape Scripture was named one of the "Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2012" by National Public Radio.[1] Winter Light was named one of the "Albums of the Year" (2015) by the New York City Jazz Record.[2]

His current quartet consists of Gebhard Ullmann on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Thomas Morgan on bass, and Kresten Osgood on drums.

Nate Chinen described Scott DuBois in The New York Times as having "an equal commitment to knotty compositions and blank-canvas improvisation".[3]
