URBAN JAZZ FLUTIST KIM SCOTT EMERGES WITH NEW SINGLE FOR INNERVISION RECORDS TITLED “EMERGE”
The title of flutist extraordinaire Kim Scott’s latest single “Emerge” is a bit ironic considering how she’s been hitting the Smooth Jazz charts with her seamless, spirited swirl of dreaminess and fiery energy to the genre since the early 2010s. The track fashions a world all its own, where the mystical and whimsical flow gets caught up in the groovin’ funk. “Emerge” illuminates the friendship and spirited jazz connection between Scott and Jonathan Fritzen, her co-writer who creates beautiful harmonies and a stunning piano solo. “Emerge” is the lead single from Scott’s highly anticipated upcoming album FREE TO BE, due out this spring.
Kim Scott is back at it again with new energy and a relentless desire to show the world the magical wonders of her artistry on the flute. With the help of good friend Jonathan Fritzen on piano and keyboards (Fritzen also co-wrote the track), Kelvin Wooten on keyboards, programming and percussion, Sean Michael Ray on Bass, James “PJ” Spraggins on drums and Eric Essix on guitar, Kim brings to life one of their greatest musical offerings, “Emerge”.
In 2016 Kim released “Southern Heat”, her 3rd album and debut album on Innervision Records. The album featured the smash single “Sizzle”, co-written with trumpeter Lin Rountree, which made its way to the top of the national smooth jazz charts. Kim Scott’s Block Party Radio Show is now a nationally/internationally syndicated Jazz show across the United States and Australia and Kim is also a member of the well known all-female jazz group Jazz in Pink.
