Scott Kinsey Scott Kinsey

Jazz multi-keyboardist Scott Kinsey from Owosso, Michigan began studying piano at an early age and almost instantly became interested in the synthesizer. After graduating from Boston's Berklee College of Music in 1991, Scott moved to Los Angeles and was soon touring the world with the critically acclaimed electric jazz group “Tribal Tech”.

In addition to his work with Tribal Tech (feat. Scott Henderson and Gary Willis), Scott has performed and recorded with many of todays music greats such as James Moody, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Philip Bailey, Anne Sofie Von Otter, Bill Evans, Robben Ford, Gary Willis, WDR Big Band, Serj Tankian (System of a Down), David Holmes & The Free Association, Joe Zawinul, Danny Carey (TOOL), Norrbotten Big Band, Tim Hagans, Bob Belden, Nicholas Payton & Sonic Trance, Matt Garrison and many others.

Kinsey has also lent his record production skills to Philip Bailey (“Soul On Jazz”), Joe Zawinul (“Faces and Places”), Tim Hagans (Imagination Animation and ReAnimation - Both Grammy nominated!) Tribal Tech (Reality Check,Thick,Rocket Science), Scott Henderson (Dog Party, Tore Down House) Gary Willis (Bent) and James Moody (“Homage”).

Making the hip even hipper, you can also hear Scott’s keyboards backing up the biggest movie stars of today in the soundtracks to the films “Ocean’s Eleven”, “Code 46”, “Stander”, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”, “Brown Sugar”, “Analyze That!” and 2005’s hugely successful “Ocean’s Twelve”. Upcoming soundtracks include Bob Odenkirk's “You are going to Prison” and Steven Soderbergh's “The Good German”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
