Many have compared Scott's vocal style and approach on the trumpet to the great Chet Baker, whose stature as a singing trumpeter rivaled even the incomparable Louis Armstrong. The comparison is welcome, but only partially describes the aesthetic quality of the Scott Dickinson Trio.
The trio is comprised of some of central Florida's top jazz talent. Local guitar legend Bobby Koelble provides the harmonic framework for the ensemble. Bobby is an incredibly versatile instrumentalist, equally adept in a supporting role as he is creating melodically intricate, exciting improvisations.
Bassist Ben Kramer plays with an authenticity and mastery of the jazz tradition that betrays his young age. Without a drummer Ben is most often the sole provider of the pulse, and is uniquely suited to creating a strong groove.
Scott leads the band with a focus on high musicality in performance and writing. Having studied under some of the most accomplished performers and composers in the world of jazz, Scott brings a sense of depth uncommon in similar ensembles.
The core of the trio's repertoire is firmly centered within the great American songbook, but the band evades predictability through the creation of tasteful arrangements that bring the group's instrumentation to it's full potential.
