LYNNE SCOTT was born into a musical family. Her mother, Teresa, taught piano, and her father, Bruce, was a gifted clarinetist who led an orchestra on radio for many years and was a well known music educator. Her four brothers are all musical, one of them a highly regarded west coast jazz and classical trombonist.
Lynne is blessed with perfect pitch, and can “sight sing” virtually any music set before her. Her versatility and professionalism have made her a favorite with musicians and audiences alike. Although Lynne’s first love is performing “standard pop” (Gershwin, Kern, Berlin, Porter, etc.) she is quite an adaptable singer and can swing with the best of them. She has a repertoire of literally hundreds of songs and continually adds to it, and (band leaders take note) actually KNOWS the keys she sings them in.
Lynne has appeared regularly on Midwest radio and TV, and has played most of the top venues in the area. She appeared on the Len Mink Show, the Nick Clooney Show, the Vivian Della Chiesa Show, The Bob Braun Afternoon Show, and the 1180 Club Radio show. She spent ten years singing with the Teddy Raymore Quartet and was featured “girl singer” with the Pete Wagner Orchestra/Band for several years, still appearing with them occasionally. She also sang with the vocalese group “Close Company” for three years.
From 2003 to 2011, Lynne appeared weekends with the highly acclaimed “Frank Vincent Trio” at the Celestial in the Incline Lounge at Highland Towers, atop Mount Adams until Frank took a leave of absence due to illness. She can now be seen regularly at the Cincinnati Netherland Hilton Hotel in the Palm Court Lounge with the Jim Hart Trio.
Phil DeGreg began playing the piano in his childhood and now performs as a jazz pianist internationally. His earliest jazz influences were Bud Powell and Bill Evans, but he is accomplished and comfortable in a wide range of jazz styles, ranging from mainstream to bebop to Brazilian jazz. His versatility has led to professional performances with dozens of internationally recognized jazz artists, as well as leading and recording with his own groups. Phil DeGreg has released eleven recordings as a leader and has been recorded as a sideman on many other jazz projects. He is also featured with J.J. Johnson on the video «J.J. Johnson Live in Concert.» His most recent recorded project called «Melodious Monk» done in conjunction with trumpeter Kim Pensyl features the music of Thelonius Monk in duo and trio settings without drums. A review in All About Jazz writes: "â€¦he exhibits an excellent understanding of the complex compositions, and the stride tradition from which Monk sprangâ€¦they succeed because they have an undeniable affection for Monk, and their performance is top-notch….Phil DeGreg's masterful piano interprets Monk brilliantly and Kim Pensyl's trumpet is the perfect complement"
