Scott was born in Los Angeles, California. He is the son of prolific film and television composer Nathan Scott, who had more than 850 television credits and more than 100 film credits as a composer, orchestrator and conductor, including credit for composing the theme songs for Dragnet and Lassie.
His best-known works are the theme songs for TV series from the 1970s and 1980s — Starsky and Hutch (a track entitled "Gotcha!") and The Streets of San Francisco, and his soprano sax solo and fills on the 1975 #1 hit single Listen to What the Man Said for Wings. In 1982, Scott also collaborated with Johnny Mathis to write & record two versions -- lyrical and instrumental -- of "Without Us", the theme to the 80's sitcom Family Ties. His song "Today" is sampled in the Pete Rock & CL Smooth 1992 hit They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.).
