Scott Barnum – Bass

Performing and touring throughout the United States and Canada, Scott Barnum is noted for his distinctive musicianship and bass playing. He has performed and recorded with many including Dave Liebman, Bob Moses, Tim Hagans, Bill Carrothers, Ed Byrne, Darren Barrett, Phil Grenadier and Diana Gannett. He was the bassist in Charlie Kohlhase’s CK5, voted “Best of Boston, Local Jazz 2003.” An upcoming release by Barnum and guitarist Eric Hofbauer inspired Dan Cantor of Notable Productions to write, “this record has loads of amazing improvisation and mischief that only these two could create.”

Scott has performed in venues ranging from Boston’s Symphony Hall and Regattabar to New York City’s Tonic and Knitting Factory to Chicago’s Green Mill. After returning to Iowa, he has performed with many groups including The Eddie Piccard Quartet, The University of Iowa Faculty Jazz Ensemble, the Steve Grismore Trio, the Al Naylor Quintet, Dave Rezek’s Alpha State Agents, Eric Thompson & the Talented Tenth, and Calle Sur.
