Scott Kinsey – keyboards
Patrick Bartley – saxophones
Hadrien Feraud – bass
Gergo Borlai – drums
His unique sounds continue to rapidly evolve with each new project. Scott has been privileged to work with some of the best known jazz musicians including Scott Henderson, John McLaughlin, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Evans, Tim Lefebvre, Matthew Garrison, Dennis Chambers, Robben Ford, Thundercat, Flying Lotus and many others.
Kinsey’s 2019 album, called We Speak Luniwaz, is a tribute to keyboard icon Joe Zawinul (Miles Davis, Weather Report), with whom Scott had a deep and lasting relationship. Before he passed, Zawinul charged Kinsey with carrying on Joe’s truly awesome legacy. The album features several Zawinulpenned tunes made famous by Weather Report and the Zawinul Syndicate, as well as some of Scott’s originals.
Joining Kinsey on tour will be French bassist Hadrien Feraud (Chick Corea, John McLaughlin); Hungarian drummer Gergo Borlai (Al Di Meola, Nguyên Lê); and Patrick Bartley, Jr. (Jon Batiste, Wynton Marsalis) on saxophones.
This powerhouse group has honed their material at the famed Baked Potato jazz club in Los Angeles.
- – ‘Scott Kinsey’s realization of these Weather Report tunes manages to not only pay tribute to the works of Zawinul and Shorter but also to mine the music for discoverable gold. His band plays the daylights out of these tunes. This album deserves your attention’. (Peter Erskine)
