Gary started his professional career as a member of the prestigious Airmen of Note, the official jazz ensemble of the U.S. Air Force. As a featured woodwind solo-tenor saxophonist and assistant leader of the, "Note" he toured Europe and the United States performing on numerous recordings and TV shows.

Having mastered 13 instruments, Gary spent 12 years as soloist with the Caesars Palace Orchestra in Las Vegas, playing for Frank Sinatra (with whom he did over 1,000 performances), Sammy Davis, Tony Bennett, and Diana Ross, as well as Johnny Mathis, Bing Crosby, Lena Horne, Ann Margaret, Steve Lawrence & Edie Gorme, Paul Anka, and many more. Gary also played for the Diana Ross & Patti Page TV Specials and Frank Sinatra's 40th Anniversary In Show Biz Special.

In a jazz mode he built a reputation in small groups with Charlie Ventura, Johnny Smith, Frank Rossolino, Ray Brown, Mundell Lowe, Sonny Stitt, and Herb Geller, as well as Doc Severinsen, Clark Terry, Louis Bellson, and Eddie Daniels.

He formed the San Diego Jazz Orchestra and the Gary Scott Orchestra which has backed such international stars as Natalie Cole, Johnny Mathis, Lou Rawls, Keely Smith, Andy Williams, and Tony Bennett.
