Rhoda Scott, legendary organist and living legend of the Hammond organ.
Rhoda Scott “the barefoot lady”, one of the greatest Hard bop and soul jazz organists. Her technical mastery and virtuosity combined with a perfect knowledge of the sonic possibilities of the instrument make her a living myth of the Hammond B3 organ. Rhoda Scott evokes her childhood as a pastor’s daughter in the USA, learning to play organ in churches, studying with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, playing with the greats: Ray Charles, George Benson, Count Basie or Ella Fitzgerald… her international career in the Saint-Germain jazz clubs and the Olympia in Paris.
