"Musical and lyrical summersaults with no net. Baring their souls, the live-creative duo of Robert G. Scott and Genevieve Marentette conjure up and embellish variations of 80's popular hits with jazz telepathy and unmatched skill." - George Koller (Zsan Records)
Toronto, Feb 19, 2021 - For almost a year now, musicians like Canada's brilliant pianist and song-writer Robert G. Scott have been unable to perform live in concert. Scott is the author of the hit Michael Bublé song, "Hollywood", an educator and up until the pandemic he was the resident pianist for Toronto's beloved Jazz Bistro, where nightly, he tinkled the ivories for hundreds of theatre goers and dinner jazz enthusiasts. Scott is known for his eidetic musical memory of songs and "licks", and for his clever propensity to "mash-up" musical references across all genres, to the delight of any avid music fan. Scott is a very spontaneous player, an exceptional soloist and an unconventional candidate for simply accompanying a vocalist onstage. Yet alongside the similarly spontaneous vocal improviser Genevieve Marentette, there is a riveting sense of engagement and musical equality as performers. In 2015, producer George Koller decided to present the duo live in a concert at Toronto's Trinity-St. Paul's church. The evening was recorded very simply for archival purposes. Now, in a time where live concerts are on pause, this release is a delicious treat for fans of these songs, and of fearless live music making.

Singing professionally under her mother's wing since the age of 5, Gigi is a very well educated vocalist - yet she sings with a rawness and soul that one might attribute to a unique hippy parentage and her teenage exposure to the detroit music scene. She's known primarily for her fearless live approach to song interpretation and her recordings and collaborations are many and diverse. She's found in Toronto, Detroit, Hong Kong and Berlin.

The kind of artist who, when you see and hear her, makes you wonder why she isn't yet wildly famous; but I'm convinced she's headed in that direction, not because fame is what matters (she'll tell you it doesn't), but because she has the kind of heart, soul and musical imagination that draws people in and holds them there. She has all the goods – a killer voice, a distinctive sound, movie-star looks, an electric stage presence, a radiant spirit, and fearless creativity. And to top it all off, she's a genuinely special human being.
