Maggy Scott
Her name does not sound German, but she is German, a Frankfurt girl who loves her Hammond above all. Hearing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach played on a church organ was the major event for the five year old Maggy to fall in love with music. It determined her life and strengthened her desire and decision to become a musician.
Since then, everything in her life revolved around the organ, and when she first heard the impressive sound of the legendary Hammond B-3 she knew that this organ was made for her. Throughout the idiom of jazz, Maggy was able to develop her musical persuits. Jazz satisfies her quest of free forms of improvisation and musical expression.
After graduating from college, Maggy went to New York City. It was in N.Y. jazzclubs where her untamed way of playing the organ attracted the attention of audiences and fellow musicians. Soon she established her newly founded trio with drums and tenorsax. During this time Maggy attended the renowned New School of Music in Manhattan, where she enhanced her studies of jazz with Reggie Workman, Frank Foster, Gary Dial, Lee Ann Ledgewood, Junior Mance, and Arnie Lawrence.
Back in Germany the young organist studied musicology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitä in Frankfurt where she took classical piano lessons with concert pianist Ronald Fries. Beyond that she concentrated intensively on the musical works of classical and modern composers from Bach to Messiaen. Maggy tours with saxophonist Peter Glessing, and participated in some of the well known German jazz festivals. She gave concerts in Austria and Switzerland as well.
