In the interview with Matt Garrison, the bassist comments about his godfather, Jack DeJohnette and the important lessons he learned while living with his family. “It’s
very childish in a way - his approach to music. He just loves it and it
just happens. But at the same moment, he was imparting to me that it’s
something as serious as your existence, as your life. There’s a
simplicity to it but there’s also that dedication that this is what you
breathe, you live, you drink.”
Trombonist Conrad Herwig made an observation about the dichotomy between the music and music business. "I
have always felt that there are two sets of criteria for every artist.
The External Life and the Internal Life. The music business can often be
based on External goals. There is nothing wrong with these goals which
include promotion, marketing, management, bookings, recording, and
financial acumen. We have to live in the world. The Internal life is a
world of sound, feeling, emotion, and ultimately the inner creative
urge. If your soul is satisfied everything else seems to fall into

His son Stan Warnow, a noted film and TV editor and film-maker, is
debuting his documentary, Deconstructing Dad, at the Quad Theatre in New
York, July 13-July 19. The film goes inside the life, work and
creations of his father. about at the Quad Theatre in New York.
the interview with Stan, he discussed the list of great jazz musicians
who comprised his father's recording band during the 1930s and 40s -
including drummer Cozy Cole, trumpeter Bunny Berigan, and saxophonist Ben Webster. Although Raymond Scott had a band full of jazz players, he did not want improvisation in the recordings. Players knew that. “Apparently
Ben Webster got there and said, ‘You know, I improvise. That’s what I
do.’ Of course, Ben Webster was this titanic name — so my father let
him improvise. Then the other musicians were like, ‘Well, wait a minute.
If he can do it, we can do it too.’ So that band was a real jazz band
and people did take solos and improvise.”
continued describing Raymond Scott's activities as a pioneering
recording engineer and developer of electronic music and instruments. "He
loved the recording process and he was one of the first people, as far
as I know, to kind of see the recording process, not as just is a way to
take a performance and re-record it. His concept was that this is a way
to take a performance and transform it into something else — whether
that was improving it or shaping it."
