TOMMY SCOTT TRIO
Tommy Scott spent his childhood in the Welsh mountains and was based for many years in the Cotswold hills, near Bristol in southwest England. His piano style creates a unique blend of classical, rock, jazz, blues and latin influences which is both melodic and exciting.
He studied classical piano as a child and was branded as a prodigy when he first burst onto the jazz scene at the age of sixteen, playing at many festivals across the UK with his trio.
His performing career began when the great US pianist Joey Calderazzo invited Tommy to sit in with his band when Tommy was just 13! Joey also introduced Tommy to British pianist Jason Rebello, with whom he studied privately for a year.
In his early teens, Tommy went to as many live gigs as he could and got to meet many of his heroes such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ray Brown, Cedar Walton, Roy Haynes, and Elvin Jones.
Another significant moment happened when he became friends with the Panamanian pianist and composer, Danilo Perez. Danilo invited Tommy to go and study with him at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
More recently, Tommy has been living in Paris, where he has been playing with many fine musicians from around Europe and New York, such as Baptiste Herbin, Sylvain Beuf, Francesco Ciniglio, Saul Rubin, and Plume. His sensitive playing has made him an in-demand accompanist for a number of singers.
Tommy’s latest trio project features Gabriel Pierre on bass and Pierre-Alain Tocanier on drums and he is currently writing the music for a new album.
