Thanks so much for your support of "Delicious Vinyl" and "Past Present Future".  Currently, we're moving up the jazz and Billboard charts!  Just take a look at the latest ratings!


I had such an awesome time at this year's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.  It was truly a dream come true for me and my first step towards achieving my dreams of winning a Grammy!  Seeing all your heroes and being in the same vicinity really made it special as I sat 3 rows from blues legend Buddy Guy (awesome!!).  Well, as my journey continues, I bring to you another baby step towards that process as I will be releasing my upcoming single in March 2016 and a full length album in April!  Please begin to tell your friends about my upcoming projects and I hope to see you in Los Angeles come 3/13!


Thanks for your love and support!

I'd like to send out special thanks to Watt's Winery and Inner City Productions based out of Northern California for having me perform this past weekend at their awesome event filled with wine and music.  The weather was fantastic, the food was awesome, and the crowd was amazing!  I again had a great time and I look forward to seeing you all again soon!  Currently working on music for my friends Dee Lucas and Surewill so look forward to more new music this year! 

Many thanks to the awesome friends I met at NAMM this past week at Anaheim, LA.  It was definitely an awesome event where I got to meet all my awesome jazz friends and retailers from all around the US!  I got to see a lot of new gear and was impressed by the selection coming out this 2014.  But, the one that topped it all off was getting an endorsement from the luthiers at D'angelico!  For those of you that don't know, I've been using their guitars on the "Coast to Coast" and "Side by Side" projects.  I currently have used the NYSD and the EXS-1 which are both exceptional guitars!  Again, many thanks to the fantastic folks at D'angelico and I look forward to showing you my latest guitar!  In the meantime, check them out here:

Hello everyone, I know it's been a while since I posted and I hope all is well with you!  I am excited to announce the release of Cal Harris Jr.'s album "Shelter Island" featuring: Marion Meadows, Ricky Lawson, Elan Trotman, along with many others including myself!  I am deeply honored and blessed to be a part of this project so take a listen and get your copy today!  Here's a brief review from

Esteemed contemporary jazz keyboardist Cal Harris Jr. definitely brings the "smooth" and the "sexy" back to Smooth Jazz with his outstanding sophomore release, SHELTER ISLAND. Mr. Harris has concocted a luscious concept album that will whisk you away to exotic, mysterious places where you can reconnect with your higher self and feel truly stress-free. He's gathered top-shelf talent to support his beautiful playing, too. Sax work from Marion Meadows, Elan Trotman, and talented newcomer Keith McKelley, together with Ricky Lawson (Yellowjackets) on drums and up-and-coming indie guitarist Joel del Rosario, add immeasurably to the lovely patina of the ten original tracks, including the radio hits "Smooth" and "By the Bay." I must tell you - this is one of the most beautifully assembled and performed keyboard-driven albums I've heard so far this year... one that any Smooth Jazz aficionado would be delighted to include in their collection. That means you! ~SCOTT O'BRIEN

Just a quick shout out to everyone who had purchased tickets to see my friend Dee Lucas at Spaghettini's in Southern California.  Thank you all so much for coming to the show and enjoying the party!  I had so much fun performing with Dee's super band and definitely meeting you all!  Currently, several shows are in the works and I believe we are confirmed to play San Antonio, TX this coming May 31st and Jun 1st!  Lineup to include:  Surewill, Dee Lucas, Russell Blake, and myself along with of course, a tough band!  Please continue to tell your friends about my CD "Coast to Coast" and hope to see you soon! -jDR

I am truly hoping you all are enjoying your holidays and remind you to please be safe during this time of the year!  2012 has been an amazing year full of great surprises for me, and I'm truly grateful to have met so many of you over these past few months!  As far as 2013 looks, I'm amazed at all the opportunities coming my way as I am right now looking over several contracts to perform all around the US!  But, to start off, please join me Jan 20 2013 as I kick the year off with my friends Dee Lucas & Surewill at Yoshi's San Francisco!  Tickets are available right now, and please ask that you purchase them here.  Let's make 2013 great together & I hope to see you again soon!  Until then, be blessed and safe! -jDR

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you.  I have definitely been busy the past few months working on the upcoming Surewill/jDR project, and we're now 4 songs into the EP which will be titled "Side by Side".  I'm also currently writing some new material for several other smooth jazz artists and it's been a real treat and challenge to manage all these wonderful projects!  Either way, I'm really looking forward to you hearing these songs and I also hope to see you come Sept 29 as I sit in with my friends at Paddy's Cafe in Union City, CA!  Until then, please drop by and say hello and I hope to see you soon!
