In 2003, veteran clarinet, sax and flute musician Jeff Sanford formed the Cartoon Jazz Band to revive and perform such energetic and colorful Scott classics as Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals and War Dance for Wooden Indians. This matinee program features five Scott compositions plus music from The Incredibles, The Simpsons, and Betty Boop cartoons.
