Born in the United States, Rhoda Scott, the eldest daughter of a traveling pastor, grew up, she recalls, in the atmosphere of the small black churches with the accents of gospels and spirituals. In France, she also held the organ for forty years in her parish of Perche: "I sing with my instrument. He breathes in me. I'm faithful to it I first knew religious music and then jazz ", "God can encompass all styles of music" she says. Passionate about Bach's works, she has established herself as the ambassador of the Hammond organ popularized by artists like Jimmy Smith. Mastery, energy and thick timbres, Rhoda Scott remains the living myth of the Hammond organ. Encircled by two monumental Leslie cabins and B3 controllers, she hops with a smile to groove his keyboards by ensuring a swing "bluesy", airy and hard-hitting ... With fifty records to his credit, concerts at the Olympia and in the most prestigious festivals, Rhoda Scott returns with his new "Movin 'Blues" to his first love the drum organ duo that made his success and his trademark. The Barefoot Lady is back!
