Rhoda Scott
Rhoda, born in New Jersey (USA) as a daughter of a priest in 1938, discovers her love for the organ very early. As a member of a gospel choir she even plays for services. A solid study of classical organ playing follows - the base for her later career. To earn some extra money she accepts jobs in night clubs where she first touches the world of jazz.
 
1968 Rhoda moves to France, the native country of her husband Raoul Saint-Yves. Concerts lead her through almost whole Europe. Her greatest successes are celebrated in Paris where a lot of wonderful recordings were made. The Barefoot Lady, how she is called due to here playing the pedal barefoot, is a great, a very great viruoso, has said Arthur Rubinstein.
