Raymond Scott -- Manhattan Research td Mon Jan 1 11:23:11 2007
Raymond Scott was a band-leader and popular composer in the 1930's and '40s. He's best known today because his often off-beat tunes were primary source material for many of Carl Stalling's scores for Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. Scott was also a techno-buff and musical instrument designer. The work of his musical R&D company, Manhattan Research, is documented in a 144 page book and a pair of CDs. (Also available in Vinyl.)
