Popular jazz artists Lisa Kelly and JB Scott met in 1997 through the prestigious jazz program at the University of North Florida and began a musical partnership with their first appearance together at the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival. They have since performed throughout the U.S. and internationally as featured guest soloists and with their groups, the “Kelly-Scott Jazz Quintet” (classic jazz), “JB’s Swingin’ Allstars” (New Orleans jazz), and as co-founders with saxophonist Don Zentz of “Florida Jazz Plus” music organization (10 and 20-piece big bands). Lisa & JB have appeared with such notable artists as Bunky Green, Arturo Sandoval, Bill Allred, Claudio Roditti, Maceo Parker, Carmen Bradford, Slide Hampton, Al Hirt, Paquito D’Rivera, Ken Peplowski, Red Hollaway, Eddie Higgins, Jeff Hamilton, and Lynn Seaton, Bill Waltrous, Jane Monheit, Ed Calle, Dave Steinmeyer, Tim Hagans, Bill Prince, Ira Sullivan, the legendary Larry Elgart, and many others. Their many (often repeated) appearances have included the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Clearwater Jazz Holiday, North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherlands), Macieo Jazz Festival (Brazil), Savannah Jazz Festival, Jazz by the Bay Festival, Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, Elkhart Jazz Festival, Mammoth Lakes Jazz Festival, Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival, Jacksonville Jazz Festival, Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic, Festival Vien (Austria), Lakeside Jazz Festival, the Midwest Clinic (Chicago), the International Association of Jazz Educators, Walt Disney World’s Pleasure Island Jazz Club, the Kravis Center, Duke’s Jazz Bar (Switzerland), and for numerous other festivals, jazz clubs and jazz societies.

Vocalist Lisa Kelly holds a B.M. Degree in Jazz Studies from the University of North Florida, where she won an unprecedented four Down Beat Magazine collegiate awards for Best Jazz Vocalist and one for Best Original Composition, many other awards and scholarships, and was the vocal winner of the acclaimed 2000 IAJE Sisters In Jazz Combo, performing at the IAJE Convention in New Orleans, the Vienna State Opera House for Festival Vien, and the Kennedy Center for the Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Festival. As a performer, she has been the featured vocalist with the Larry Elgart Orchestra, the St. Johns River City Band, as a guest soloist with small groups and big bands, has toured throughout Europe and the U.S, and has been featured on numerous TV & radio commercials and recording projects. As an educator, Lisa has taught jazz voice, jazz combos, jazz history, and music business courses at UNF, LaVilla Middle SOTA, Douglas Anderson High School of the Arts, and the North Florida Music Camp. She has served as an artist/clinician and adjudicator for vocal and instrumental camps and competitions, and has presented vocal clinics for both FVA and FBA at FMEA/MENC in Tampa, Florida, and the 2010 Inaugural JEN Conference in St. Louis. In addition to performing, Kelly currently teaches private voice at First Coast Community Music School and is a popular clinician/adjudicator. A YAMAHA trumpet/artist, JB Scott is the first graduate of the UNF Jazz Program, earning his B.A. Degree in Music and his M.S. Degree in Music Ed. at FIU, while studying with the great Arturo Sandoval. J.B. has performed with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, the Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus (Japan), the St. Johns River City Band, and was the leader-cornetist of the world-renowned Dukes of Dixieland for over three years. While with the Dukes, he was featured on two CDs, on the PBS special A Salute to Jelly Roll Morton, and performed with Skitch Henderson and the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall. JB is a professor of music at UNF, directing the acclaimed UNF Jazz Ensemble I, directing the annual UNF Jazz Series and Koger-Matteson Jazz Festivals, and teaching jazz trumpet and music history courses.

Lisa Kelly & JB Scott have conducted many educational vocal/trumpet clinics with secondary, college, and professional jazz ensembles, have served on faculty for jazz camps, have presented clinics for IAJE and MENC/FMEA, the inaugural JEN Conference in St. Louis, and other organizations, and served as adjudicators, critiquing solo and ensemble competitions. Their fun, informative, and interactive “Jazz For Kids” clinics have reached thousands of children and have been included in the community outreach programs of major jazz festivals. As jazz artists, Lisa & JB have been profiled as “Artists Deserving of Wider Recognition” on the Southern Arts Federation CD, “JazzSouth,” distributed to 100’s of radio stations throughout the U.S. and abroad. In 1997, Lisa Kelly released her highly recognized debut solo CD, “My Legacy” at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Since 2001, Lisa & JB have appeared on numerous recordings, TV and radio commercials, and have released four CD recordings with their groups, the successful project “Home,” the award winning “Memories of Tomorrow,” the well received “Live At Simons,”and their long awaited new release, “Just Swingin!”

Their Musical Style…Like Ella and Louis, a complimentary musical pair. Lisa Kelly’s stage presence is one of sophisticated ease, with a smooth, silky toned voice, and a seasoned, sultry, rich timbre reminiscent of the ‘greats’ before her like Ella, Sassy, Julie London, Carmen McCrae and the modern Diana Krall. Known for her impeccable pitch and a natural sense of swing, her ‘instrumental’ approach to singing allows her the freedom to explore the music as a horn player, with sensitivity of lyric and an “Ella” like scat that takes you back. Lisa’s style is tastefully balanced by the swinging, sassy, fiery lines of trumpeter JB Scott, a la Freddie Hubbard meets Clark Terry meets Dizzy Gillespie. JB skillfully produces a clean, singing trumpet tone, conveyed through pure, flowing, “Chet Baker’ish” melodies and high gliding, intricate passages. His versatile style enables him to deliver anything from sensitive ballads to hard driving bebop, from Latin sensuality to New Orleans Blues, with masterful technical agility-all with heart, each style true to its tradition. And like Armstrong or Clark Terry, JB often articulates his trumpet lines through engaging vocal scatting.
