Marilyn Scott is best known for her Grammy-nominated work as a contemporary jazz vocalist and songwriter, having performed with some of the best musicians in the world over the last few decades.
The veteran vocalist has been releasing critically acclaimed, cross-genre recordings for more than four decades, both as a leader and collaborator, and has dazzled audiences all over the world with her powerful live performances.
Why do some artists thrive for decades in the ever-changing music world and others fade away so quickly? The reasons are myriad but there’s one factor shared by all of the true survivors: originality. The key to longevity is having something to say, and being able to say it in a manner unlike any other performer.
On her newest CD Standard Blue, Scott explains, “The selection of the musicians and a direction of mood, made me take a very progressive approach on this recording, with blues overtones and open jazz arrangements. How to grow and embrace all these styles I love and present them in jazz music is the future,” she says.
Tonight’s performance is shared with Sam Hirsh on piano and Derek Oles on Bass.
