More Info

Winner of OffBeat Magazine 's 2009 Best of the Beat Award for "Best Contemporary Jazz Record," Cindy Scott is an accomplished vocalist, bandleader, composer and arranger. Scott has walked a different path than most jazz singers, though. She has a Masters in International Business, speaks German and Spanish, and spent several years living and working in Europe and Central America. Also a Masters of Jazz Studies holder from the University of New Orleans, she has been a full time professor of Voice at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music and has found a happy marriage between her straight-ahead roots and the musical gumbo that pervades New Orleans, her now longtime home. "Her voice moves seamlessly between influences, holding a masterfully controlled vibrato on one phrase before dipping into a bluesy purr on the next." ~ Jennifer O'Dell, Downbeat Magazine "She has the serious jazz chops that enable her to improvise on a dime on whatever chord changes are thrown her way… the highest praise of all, she really doesn't sound like anyone else." ~ Tom McDermott, Offbeat Magazine
