I first heard Scott Cook at one of Rhea Caldwell’s Dear Monday sessions at the Retreat Hotel on Sydney Road in Brunswick. He played on the bill with Mary Webb, and everyone melted. I bought his fourth album One More Time Around. Since then he’s gained a big following around Australia, and is widely loved for his incredible jam sessions and mesmerising stage presence.
Scott had only one or two days in Melbourne on this tour, and it’s a happy chance that we could get him for episode 2 of An Otherwise Quiet Room.
