“... one of the most creative and unpredictable synth soloists around. He is always looking to push the envelope.”
— Bill Milkowski
Scott has been named Best Keyboardist in the last two JazzTimes Readers Polls, along with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Robert Glasper. Good company!
“Scott Kinsey has taken the language of the synthesizer to the highest level in our modern times, as he is the first generation of keyboardists who developed electronically as opposed to the acoustic-centric classic piano model.” — Bob Belden
"Kinsey, perhaps in compensation for his inhuman chops quotient, has now established himself as an innovator for incorporating the human element, in the form of sampled vocals—pitched, unpitched, sung, spoken or screamed—into his custom-programmed sonic voice.” — All About Jazz
“Tribal Tech's secret weapon remains keyboardist Kinsey, who not only adds harmonic meat with his richly provocative choral voicings, hip comping and counterpoint melodies, but also stands as one of the most creative and unpredictable synth soloists around. He is always looking to push the envelope.” — Bill Milkowski
"Kinsey, like Zawinul, possesses formidable chops, but he's equally interested in the orchestral possibilities of technology in real-time improvised settings." — John Kelman
