Cindy Scott's debut CD “should make anyone take notice,” says New York recording artist Roseanna Vitro.

Cindy Scott has a warm, sexy tone with clear presentation of lyrics and attention to melody. In her singing can be heard the influences of well-known jazz artists Sarah Vaughn and Karrin Allyson, with a touch of Ricki Lee Jones mixed in. She either swings hard or floats dreamily, depending on the song. Scott's passion for jazz comes out in her delivery and endears her to her listeners.

Scott was born into a family of musicians. She studied classical flute and attended Louisiana State University on a music scholarship. Then, as an exchange student in Germany, she discovered jazz.

“Vocalist Cindy Scott strikes gold her first time out. Scott is a musical artist who delivers fables and stories and vignettes of life and love. But the young lady can also swing you into bad health. Highly recommended.” —As reviewed by Roger Crane,

“A record which should make anyone take notice. Congratulations.” —Roseanna Vitro, veteran recording artist and jazz vocalist

“Beautiful pitch, great time (which I believe is almost everything) nice players & arrangements too -very good!!! Hard to believe you've not been 'at it' for very long, you also sound so natural, great voice!” —Karrin Allyson, Concord Jazz recording artist and grammy nominee

“If you dig poignant melody beautifully expressed, “Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye” is alone worth the price of admission.” —Frank Dorritie, two-time grammy winning producer

“The arrangements and execution are superb, as are Scott's vocals. Scott has the potential to go from the minors to the major league.” —As reviewed by Timothy J. O'Brien, Houston Press

“She has the uncanny ability to mesmerize listeners with titillating displays of vocal timing and captivating nuances. Cindy utilizes her skills in a manner that clearly allows for total immersion in her music. From one track to the other, the ebb and flow of vocal jazz is clear and precise.” —As reviewed by Sheldon T. Nunn,

“I really appreciate how rarely you get a real jazz singer these days. I’m gonna keep playing this CD. If you like jazz, this album is the real thing.” —Clif Smith, Musicologist and DJ, KPFT Pacifica Radio, Houston, Texas

“Her debut CD Major to Minor is a sterling example of a warm, sensitive vocal quality, packed with the ability to perform everything from fast scat to a sweet ballad with confidence and accuracy. The intensity with which she feels the music comes right through the speakers to be embraced by the listener. This is an excellent collection of jazz favorites done remarkably well.” —As reviewed by Robert A. Lindquist, Singer Magazine
