• Dec 20, 2008, Christmas Concert Recap

Scot recently played a summer jazz piano concert at the Whatcom County Museum. Richard Vanderway from the museum said, "Thank you for sharing your talent, your music, and your enthusiasm for your music and for our community. We all left the museum a bit happier, a bit more buoyant, and a bit more enthused about the day and this place where we all live. Thanks for making us a part of your music."

One of Scot's online projects is a free website devoted to the art of jazz piano. LearnJazzPiano.com has grown into the biggest jazz piano related site online.

Scot lives in Bellingham, a city in the Northest corner of Washington just a few minutes from the Canadian border. For a smaller town, Bellingham has a nice jazz scene. Part of that scene is the weekly jazz jam that Scot ran for nearly six years at the Boundary Bay Brewery.

Scot performs throughout the Northwest, from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Portland, Oregon, playing solo piano music for parties and dining, and assembling jazz bands for everything from swing dances to psychadelic Halloween parties.

Scot's new band is called The Scot Ranney Eclective. The music is a jazzy/reggae/funky fusion, easy to dance to, and a lot of fun to listen to. Previous bands have included Chico's Paradise which got it's start back in Aspen, Colorado in 1996, Area 52, and the Seattle Jazz Mercenaries.
