"Ectoplasm is the first-ever CD presenting Scott's second Quintet, which recorded in 1948-49. Like its groundbreaking 1937-39 predecessor chronicled on 2003's Microphone Music, this "quintet" had six members, but unlike the original RSQ, this band didn't create music associated with cartoons. The album includes jazzed-up arrangements of the light classics "Humoresque" and "Song of India," and over a dozen Tin Pan Alley standards which clock in at less than two minutes each. These miniatures - including such standards as "Blue Skies," "I'll See You in My Dreams," and "How High the Moon" - were intended as radio program interludes. They demonstrate Scott's skill as an editor, distilling the essence of these songs in compressed form." (label info)
