The Scotland-born, L.A.-raised saxman was still on the road with Tower of Power when he released his debut album “Trolltown” in 1986. 25 years later the reigning merchant of Soul Jazz releases his latest solo CD “In the Zone”, a grooving, funked up, horn-splashed collection that finds the energized-as-ever tenor saxophonist paying homage to the pioneering instrumental artists of his formative years whose brilliance and musical innovations inspired his own: legends like Grover Washington, Jr., Bob James and David Sanborn. Elliot fashioned the perfect contemporary jazz complement to “Rock Steady”, his 2009 recording that was inspired by the great R&B artists he grew up listening to; both collections debuted at #5 on the Billboard jazz album chart and remained on the list for at least 30 weeks.

Elliot has scored four #1 albums and a growing number of #1 airplay singles. In addition to his participation in all-star tours like “Groovin’ For Grover” and “Jazz Attack” in the mid-’90s, he helped launch the “Guitars & Saxes” tours. The album “Summer Horns”, result of his latest collaboration with Dave Koz, Mindi Abair and Gerald Albright, was nominated for “Best Pop Instrumental Album” at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
