Album Notes
"If I Was In Jail" explores the loneliness at the heart of modern life. It was written in a hotel room on the road, far from friends and family, where the fantasy of apartness met the reality. "As a teenager I loved 'I Am A Rock' by Paul Simon because even though on the surface the song is about independence, the dark power of loneliness lurks directly underneath," Scott said. This flavor of independence about to be devoured by loneliness, suffuses "If I Was In Jail".

David Thorne Scott is a singer/songwriter and musical omnivore who uses the freedom of jazz to explore the emotional truths of standards, rock, and folk.

This album contains four versions of "If I Was In Jail":
1) The full version with vocals, cello (by Catherine Bent) and additional guitar textures (by Anthony Resta)
2) Vocal version with only cello and acoustic guitar
3) Instrumental version with only cellos and additional guitar textures
4) Instrumental version with only cello and acoustic guitar
