ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Excitement and class define the vocal stylings of Cynthia Scott. An Arkansas native, Cynthia developed her love of music at an early age singing in her father’s church. After high school, she moved to Dallas and became a stewardess while also performing on the local jazz circuit. Her talents were discovered by the late Ray Charles, and she began her career touring and recording as one of the highly acclaimed Ray Charles ‘Raelettes.’Later returning to Texas, she established herself as a solo jazz vocalist before moving to New York. Cynthia has become a featured performer at prestigious cultural centers worldwide. She has performed with many jazz celebrities such as Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., Warren Vache, Marcus Belgrave, Leroy Cooper, Igor Butman, John Hicks, Onaje Allan Gumb, Cyrus Chestnut, John Pitzarelli, Margareth Whiting, Hank Crawford, Onzy Matthews, Lionel Hampton and the legendary Cab Calloway who called her, his new discovery. Cynthia was saddened that her work with Lionel Hampton and Cab Calloway was towards the end of their lives. She quotes, there was so much more to learn from them. Her last engagement at Jazz at Lincoln center with Wynton Marsalis in a centennial tribute to Benny Carter, was recorded live on XM Radio and WBGO. Wynton introduced her as the sweetest, soulful voice possessing the deepest feeling and called her one of today’s finest jazz singers. The Chicago Tribune once stated, “Cynthia sings with remarkable smooth intonation that stands out for it’s quiet intensity and as often as Midnight Sun and Moon River have been associated with Audrey Hepburn, Cynthia made the tunes her own.” Another critique wrote in the Syracuse Herald, “Cynthia performs with haunting artistry and superb talent…”Cynthia has recorded four CD’s, which were all Grammy contenders and released on her TTOCS Records label. Her new release DREAM FOR ONE BRIGHT WORLD has been quoted as the Anointment of Cynthia Scott. She holds a Master’s Degree in Music from Manhattan School of Music. Internationally renown singer, Jon Lucien proclaimed Cynthia “…as one of the best female singes in the business today. She’s a real performer, a fantastic voice and complete musician. David Fathead Newman stated that “Cynthia Scott is a master at lighting up a stage. Style, sophistication, and spunk! She’s got it all.” In 2004 Cynthia had the distinction to serve as Jazz Ambassador for the United States. During her tour, she performed for numerous foreign heads of state and taught master classes and workshops along with concerts all over West Africa and France. The musicians on Cynthia's latest recording DREAM FOR ONE BRIGHT WORLD are John di Martino piano, Bill Easley tenor, alto, soprano and flute Lonnie Plaxico upright bass, Yoron Israel Drums, Wayne Escoffery tenor sax. Etienne Charles trumpet, Andrae Murchison trombone and Jeff Haynes on percussions For more info go to www.cynthiascott.com

One Bright World
Cynthia has something for EVERYONE on this CD. While I truly loved the whole work...three stood out for me: "The Singer" with it's intoxicating rhythms and driving percussion all the while teaching us about the great singers. If anyone else had sung this song, I would have expected her name to be mentioned among them. :-) "The Man in the Street" -Her natural way of so casually striding between conversation and song is something she's truly mastered...without even trying. It catches the essence of how we live among and react to the less fortunate. ...reminding us to remember: who "he" is, was and who we think we are in comparison...and the perceived dis-ease that we could be one event away from the same situations "Did I know You?" Most of us either have/had someone in our family or knows of someone with Alzheimers. This song should be submitted to one of the Alzheimers organizations as a theme for their fund raising drives. It should represent all of those who have shared this experience. Cynthia is truly a gifted artist who understands how to work with the moment!

Superbly Done
Cynthia Scott masterfully conveys every thought, every emotion, and every passion with her vocal technique and sensitivity. There are so many quality "moments" on this CD that it would suffice to say that the entire project exceptionally well done. She has put her unique spin on "If The Shoe Fits," making this standard suprisinglingly fresh and enjoyable. I LOVE IT!!!!!! Another favorite is "Did I know you." In it she remarkably enters the thought process of an elderly woman struggling to remember loved ones and memories from the past. It is thought provoking look at the effects of Alzheimer's Disease, which will cause you to appreciate every one and every pleasant memory that you enjoy right now. In "Just a Rumor" she exceptionally shares the pain of being the victim of what some would call "just a rumor." I could go on and on and on citing what I love about each track, but I encourage you to purchase this CD and fall in love with the beautiful gift of song and artistry of Cynthia Scott for yourself, then share your own reviews.
