Scott Cossu  FREE and family friendly. 7:30 - 9:30pm
Third Place Commons Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way NE in Lake Forest Park.

An internationally known composer, pianist, and recording artist, Scott’s work includes a melodic blend of jazz, classical, and ethnic influences. Scott was up front when New Age was just beginning over 30 years ago.  He was one of the first Windham Hill Artists.

Scott would affectionately call his music Heavy Mental or Cosmic National Geographic, even though he was one of the grandfathers of the New Age scene; he was labeled a “jazz luminary of the future”, by Billboard Magazine.  Much of Scott’s work exhibits departures from the New Age field and includes a melodic blend of jazz, classical and ethnic influences.
