Scott Allen

Rhythm One (50 Watt Records)

The foundation of this music is heavily inspired by the African musician Olatunji and his recordings from the late 1950’s, “Drums of Passion”, as well as other recordings made throughout his lifetime. As far as playing all the instruments myself, it is something that I started doing when I was in high school, first with two cassette recorders, then a 4 track reel machine, next an 8 track, then a 16 track and on and on I’ve always admired other musicians that do this, such as Emitt Rhodes, Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Lynne, Gary Burton and Bobby Hutcherson.
