Reviews of Jennifer Scott

Scott has set herself apart from the jazz-vocalist pack with her mesmerizing renditions of the most unlikely tunes ... With her warm, flexible contralto, Scott brings a striking emotional intelligence to everything she sings, no matter what the context. As much a song stylist as an improviser, she puts her stamp on material through her supple sense of swing and deft, slippery phrasing.
- Andrew Gilbert, The Seattle Times

She applies a velvet tone and superb phrasing to material including Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, Brazilian tunes and jazz standards.

Vancouver's Jennifer Scott is a supremely resourceful singer who should be far better known. Co-led by San Jose reed expert Kristen Strom, Crossing Borders features guitarist Scott Sorkin and bassist Rene Worst. The highly sympathetic collaborators make this an ideal showcase for Scott's startlingly inventive, emotionally taut vocals.
- Andrew Gilbert, The Mercury News

This voice immediately arrested my hearing and said, 'Wake up, listen up, sit down, and listen to this lady 'til she's finished singing.' A very pure, a very flexible voice--a voice made to sing jazz ... Jennifer Scott definitely has great time and a very flexible voice.
- Katie Malik, CBC Jazzbeat

Vancouver vocalist/pianist Jennifer Scott...(is) a force of nature, an artist unafraid to take risks. Her big, warm contralto sounded in top form on Charlie Chaplin’s "Smile" and an up-tempo version of "Just In Time" that climaxed with several thrilling scat choruses. Most audaciously, she transformed Lesley Gore's hit "It's My Party" into a tortured torch song. Scott is the kind of singer who you want to tackle your favorite songs, just to hear what she might do with them.

She's one of the best female vocalists I've had the pleasure of hearing in a long time (with terrific jazz, blues and pop ballads, plus tasty scat singing abilities)
- Maev Brennan, Kelowna Capital News

Throughout Something to Live By Scott exhibits her versatility, range and purity of tone.
- Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun

Jennifer Scott is a great singer and a great musician. It's always a lucky day for me when i get the chance to work with her. Whether she is working with a rhythm section or a big band, Jennifer always brings skill, intelligence, taste, and complete musicality to everything she does!
- Alan Matheson, musician and music educator

We're talking about gorgeous tone and absolutely killer technique
