Legendary Hammond organist, Rhoda Scott has decided to celebrate her 80th birthday with an upbeat and energetic show for which she has surrounded herself with a nearly exclusively feminine all-star, including drummers Anne Paceo and Julie Saury, saxophonists Géraldine Laurent, Lisa Cat-Berro and Sophie Alour, as well as trumpetist Julien Alour.
Born in New Jersey, Rhoda Scott was brought up on blues and gospel, before being noticed by Count Basie. She moved to France on Eddie Barclay’s invitation and went on to record many albums with him. “The barefoot organist” is an emblematic figure of jazz and a spokesperson for more women in the genre. «We Free Queens», the distinctively swing album recorded with the sextet feels like a manifesto. After touring the largest French festivals and receiving a Victoire du Jazz, Scott has finally decided to bring her Ladies All Star to Switzerland for the very first time.
