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. While studying abroad, Scott began singing with a German trio in the jazz cellars of the Black Forest. German native Thomas Gunther, now pianist for the Chicago Jazz Ensemble, remembers working with Scott fondly. Her timing and phrasing was that of an old, experienced jazz singer, very uncommon for someone only 21 years old.
