Known predominantly for her work with the iconic Ray Charles, she has traveled the world as an American Jazz Ambassador. Ms. Scott has brought her music to four continents with concert and night club performances.
At this moment in time , the global population is facing the deadly Corona virus, Ms. Scott is re-releasing the newly re-mastered CD “Dream for One Bright World” recording.
The re-mastered CD “Dream For One Bright World” addresses humanity’s crisis in personal and planetary health with themes of love and how love must re-inform our lives in a new and different way in order to keep life on the planet inspired and moving forward.
Themes of race, education and support of young people are touched on with the artistic pen and soulful voice of Ms. Scott, who manages to pull these seemingly disparate topics together with an uplifting and rhythmic blend of jazz, funk, soul and ballads.
As the global ramifications of the Corona pandemic become clear, Cynthia Scott’s re-mastered musical offering arrives at a critical moment. Originally released in 2009, “Dream for One Bright World” is a match for the circumstances of life today.
While the world self-quarantines and so many people are forced to stay home and “shelter in place”, this music gives people the emotional support to take another look at how we are living our lives.
Over all “Dream For One Bright World” is positive and life-affirming, as it should be from the daughter of a preacher from El Dorado Arkansas.
