‘HSTORIA' LINER NOTES, BY CINDY SCOTT

Not long after my father died, I found myself planning for this album. As I was deciding what material to record, I realized that this would be my most personal project so far. Here are a few of my song choices and how they got here.

Shaw ‘Nuff -- I sat down to attempt lyrics to this Parker/Gillespie bebop classic, and an hour later, I had a song about Being unafraid to open yourself up to new experiences.

What’s Comin’ Atcha -- I wrote this after Hurricane Katrina. The message is that you never know exactly what your future holds, so you’d better live life all the way, all the time. It’s loosely inspired by a dear friend who has faced more than his share of adversity. In spite of it all, he has the most amazing heart full of love, passion, and joy. He knows who he is.

Historia de un Amor -- This beautiful bolero about loss was written by Carlos Almarán after the death of his brother’s wife. I sang it in the original Spanish for a year before I decided to write my own English lyrics. Sometimes it feels so good to let yourself be drawn into a really sad song.

Laura Lee -- Years ago, my Aunt Sarah gave me an old family bible. Pressed in its leaves were some letters written by an ancestor who fought in the Civil War. The young soldier had lost friends in battle and was hungry, cold, exhausted, and afraid. All he wanted was for the war to be over so that he could go home and be with his loved ones. The first time I heard Brian Seeger’s beautiful “Buffalo Trace,” I knew I had to tell my soldier’s story on its haunting melody.

Shenandoah -- When Dan Loomis suggested Shenandoah as a bass/voice duo, I burst into tears. For as long as I can remember, this beautiful folk song was played at every family gathering--Mom on piano, Dad on harmonica, my cousin
Charlie on guitar, and eventually, me on flute. I only recently recognized that songs like this are as much a part of me as any jazz standard.

Silence of the Stars (O Silêncio das Estrelas) -- I tried to convey in English the original message of this beloved Brazilian pop song about the universal questions of mankind. I love that Evan Christopher is on it, not only because he is such a masterful player, but also because clarinet was my dad’s major instrument. Dad, wherever you are, I hope you like this as much as I do.

Some of that Sunshine -- Last March, Karrin Allyson and I were drinking wine in her Manhattan apartment brainstorming about this album. She sat down at the piano and played me a song that she and Chris Caswell had written together. I loved it right off and asked her if she would sing it with me on the album. She said yes, and the rest is recorded history.

With immense love and gratitude, Cindy
