Since 1991, keyboardist Scott Kinsey has been a member of Tribal Tech, one of the premier bands on the fusion scene. A distinctive soloist with a unique harmonic sensibility and a wholly inventive approach to synthesizers, Kinsey has enhanced recordings by bassists Jeff Berlin and Matthew Garrison, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, trumpeters Tim Hagans and Nicholas Payton and saxophonist-producer Bob Belden. In recent years, he has produced tracks for Weather Report co-founder Joe Zawinul and also appeared on soundtracks to such films as Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Code 46.
With Kinesthetics, his first fully self-realized synth manifesto, Kinsey rekindles long-standing relationships with a core group of LA colleagues, including Tribal Tech drummer Kirk Covington, saxophonist Steve Tavaglione and basist Jimmy Earl. Special guests on this audacious, wildly creative outing include Scott's other Tribal Tech mates - bassist Gary Willis and guitarist Scott Henderson - along with drummer extraordinaire Vinnie Colaiuta, bassists Abraham Laboriel, trumpeter Tim Hagans and percussionist Arto Tuncboyaciyan.
