RE: Person I Knew – A Tribute to Scott LaFaro


2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the untimely death of bass legend Scott LaFaro. To mark this occasion, Phil recorded a tribute to the bass great that features Bill Evans alumnus and drum legend Eliot Zigmund and piano great (and former roommate of Scott’s) Don Friedman.

With the encouragment and blessing of the LaFaro estate and Barrie Kolstein, Palombi was granted permission to use Scott LaFaro’s 1825 Abraham Prescott bass for the occasion! It’s the first time since Scott’s death that the bass has been used for a whole recording.
