Artist Biography

Official Biography (courtesy of 3rd Scenario)

Spectra Jazz recording artists 3rd Scenario are both producers and performers who create a jazz style that can be best described as Cool, Smooth and Funky. 3rd Scenario is Bassist/Trumpeter Scott "Bugs" Allen and Guitarist/Lyricist and Vocalist, Earl "Tee" Harris.

Scott (aka "Bugs) is a native of Baltimore, Maryland and Earl is a Chicago native, who forged a bond some 12 years ago at an audition for a group called "Back2Back", which they consider their "Scene one".

After a second project failed "Scene Two" they persevered to create what is now known as the "3rd Scenario", paying homage to both being third generation; Harris in namesake and Allen in family musical legacy.

Their current project - "It's About Time", is driven with the mission to provide uncompromising musical excellence with flavors of Bossa Nova, African Rhythms, Urban Flair and Smooth Jazz. Together they raise the bar to include the best collaborations while enlisting talented musicians like Dapo Torimiro (John Legend, "Bayou Boogey - "Princess and the Frog", Chrisette Michele, etc.) to become the next Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis of Funk, Jazz and Soul.

Some of the artists they've worked with include: Impromp2, Bebe Winans, Euge Groove and Stephanie Mills.

"It's About Time" promises to deliver exotic funk-jazz experiences with hints of far away places and channels vocal and instrumental styles of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke and Miles Davis.
