Kendrick Scott Trio
“Kendrick is not just a timekeeper, he is a musician with big ears and a great imagination.” — Herbie Hancock
Blue Note recording artist Kendrick Scott is one of the most in-demand drummers on the scene today. “Kendrick Scott has become the Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, and Tony Williams of his generation,” says the renowned trumpeter and bandleader Terence Blanchard. “He’s a brilliant mind bringing innovation to the music at the same time as creating a safe place for young talent to develop and grow.” Kendrick Scott was born in Houston, Texas into a family of musicians. He began playing the drums at 8 years old. Scott later attended Houston’s renowned High School for the Performing and Visual Arts which has produced an impressive array of musical talent including Scott’s label mates Jason Moran and Robert Glasper, as well as Beyoncé and many others. Scott has toured with Herbie Hancock, Charles Lloyd, The Crusaders, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Kurt Elling, and Terence Blanchard, as well as recording and touring with his ensemble, Kendrick Scott Oracle.
