ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A singer versatile and comfortable performing standards, blues, vocalise and improvisation, Jennifer Scott is considered to be at the apex of Canadian vocalists.
Jennifer is considered one of the most important jazz artists working, recording and teaching
in Canada and the United States today.
Her vibrant voice and solid piano playing have been featured on many CBC and NPR shows, including
JazzBeat and her own recordings have garnered critical acclaim and sold thousands of copies.
Jennifer sings and plays piano in Novo Tempo, a Brazilian group based in the San Francisco
area. Her latest recordings as a solo artist are, "Emotional Girl" with her Quintet, “Mile 41” with her quartet, and “Live at The Cellar”, recently released on the “Cellar Live” label & receiving international airplay.
Jennifer is also an ‘in-demand’ session singer and can be heard in numerous jingles and on various album projects.
She has performed with jazz greats Clark Terry, Tommy Banks, Rufus Reid, Paul Horn, Don Thompson to name a few.

"...this voice immediately arrested my hearing and said, 'wake up, sit down and listen to this
lady 'til she's finished singing.' A very pure, a very flexible voice - a voice made to sing jazz."
-Katie Mallik, CBC Jazzbeat
Jennifer Scott has performed to sold out crowds from San Diego to Vancouver to Whitehorse on the West Coast of Canada and has begun a major foray onto the world stage including upcoming performances in Amsterdam, Milan and Paris.
She has just completed a tour of the Western States and Canada and was named “Pick of the week” by the L.A. Times where she was quoted as having:
“…a velvet tone & superb phrasing….”

Hugh Fraser (past Juno winner and nominee) has called Jennifer:
“…one of the most gifted musicians I have had the pleasure of experiencing
both as a performer and as a listener.”

Marke Andrews of the Vancouver Sun cites Scott as having:
“…versatility, range and purity of tone…”

Recent lauded performances have included Main Stage shows at the 2009 Vancouver Island Music Fest sharing the stage with artists as diverse as Jane Bunnett and Jerry Douglas. She received a lengthy standing ovation reception for her duo set with bassist Rene Worst at the same festival.
Jennifer was also featured at Stanford University performing at the Miles Davis tribute concert for their Concert series in tandem with The Jazz Museum in Harlem.

Recent performances include festival dates in Redwood City, California and Sacramento , California – as well as many concerts in Oregon, Washington State, Alberta and British Columbia. Jennifer Scott was also featured soloist with Turning Point Ensemble in Vancouver performing the orchestral works of Duke Ellington & Stravinsky. She was also featured as guest soloist with the Good Noise Gospel Choir in June of 2012.

From a recent review by noted Jazz journalist Andy Gilbert (Jazz Times): Scott has set herself apart from the jazz-vocalist pack with her mesmerizing renditions of the most unlikely tunes … With her warm, flexible contralto, Scott brings a striking emotional intelligence to everything she sings, no matter what the context. As much a song stylist as an improviser, she puts her stamp on material through her supple sense of swing and deft, slippery phrasing.”

Stylish and nuanced, with solid musicianship
Scott has been, hands down, my fave jazz singer and pianist for years. I never stray far from her CDs and there's a reason: she never lets you down. Her style and spot-on sense of timing delights and engages you like no other singer, the way she attacks a phrase and makes it her own (and yours too!) is beyond what you could reasonably expect from a singer. And her piano technique and presentation is so engaging as to be mesmerizing. She is the whole package. And then along comes New York-based Peter Bernstien to collaborate with her. Good grief, it's almost an embarrassment of riches: His ability to find new dimensions in a chord, a passage, even just a moment, combined with Scott's spot-on intuition of how to turn a phrase, make a moment memorable, and we as the listener are left with amazing renditions of tunes we thought we know. Throw in an original Scott tune or two and we're really on the fast track to Nirvana with this CD. I highly recommend it to any listener, casual or serious, of jazz. It's found its way into my CD player in my car, and I don't plan on ejecting it anytime soon.
