AllMusic Review by

The 2013 two-disc compilation Master of Funk: The Essential Albums 1974-1977 brings together several of saxophonist Tom Scott's albums of the '70s. This was during the early part of Scott's career, prior to his '80s smooth jazz period, when he was delving deep into a combination of jazz and funk. Included here are 1974's Tom Scott & the L.A. Express, 1974's Tom Cat, and 1976's New York Connection. These are gritty, hard-grooving albums.
