Kim Scott – Crossing Over

Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama Kim Scott already toured around the world with her flute and harp ensemble Kimoni Duo, with Monica Hargrave, harp, and as a soloist with professional combos and orchestras across the United States and South America.. She is teaching flute at the Alabama School of Fine Arts as Chair of the Department of Music.

Her debut album Crossing Over was produced by Keith “Cashmere” Williams, who played guitar on the lead track, Rain and Olivia. Also, Dave Crenshaw of the Lionns Den produced, co-wrote and played keys on Crossing Over. In addition, I’d like to acknowledge Kelvin Benion on keys for his work in the Bob Baldwin tune, Meu Amigo, Meu Amante. The starting track Crossing Over has the right groove to keep you captivated from first to last note. Kim’s divine flute play is perfectly framed by keyboards, guitar and other instruments.

With her great intuition she gets the most out of Beyoncé Knowles’ song Déjà Vu. Rain is a song by SMV from their album Release Some Tension (1997) based on Jaco Pastorius’s Portrait of Tracy. Norman Brown covered the song on his album Celebration (2003). On Kim’s version she interprets vocals and flute with immense intensity. On Unthinkable (Im Ready) Kim gives huge respect to Alicia Keys’s original.
