New Glows in the Dark EP Blends Jazz and Hip-Hop

Glows in the Dark is a band led by Richmond-based guitarist and composer Scott Burton. The band has the instrumentation of a typical jazz quintet, but the music is anything but typical. The repertoire ranges from cinematic grooves inspired by soundtracks of horror flicks, crime films and kung-fu movies to more abstract avant-garde textures.

Scott is always experimenting with his music, and for his latest project--“Research and Development”--he collaborated with hip-hop m.c.’s to create a musical setting for their spoken-word performances and with producers who have taken the resulting tracks and remixed them.

Scott spoke with me about his latest project. For more information, visit glowsinthedark.bandcamp.com.
