Keith Scott has been writing and playing jazz since his early teenage years. Some of the highlights of his college years include being selected as student leader of the award winning West Chester University Jazz Ensemble and winning a Downbeat Magazine scholarship to Berkely School of Music for his big band arrangement of "Here's That Rainy Day." His original composition called "Outside In" arranged for big band brought rave reviews form jazz pianist Marian McPartland (judging the Villanova Jazz Festival). She labeled it "a very creative original chart." Currently, Keith has been on the concert stage with jazz greats Gabe Baltazar and Slyde Hyde and also holding down a regular gig at Da Smoke House in Waikiki every Friday and Saturday. Scott moved to Oahu in May of 2001 and almost immediately went to work on his new CD called Waikiki, which features his piano and brass artistry on eight original compositions and three covers. Keith's live performances are sorely missed in the Tampa Bay area, but at least now we have this excellent CD to help fill the void until we get to catch him again in person.
