NOTES
Critics are saying:
Scotts earth contralto explores love lost and found from the celebratory to the introspective. The beautiful harmonies and Scotts festive vocal deliver makes this a standout opening track--All About Vocals

Sultry, versatile, appealing and soulful.. expertly sung. The forceful blues drenched romp, "I Don't Want You Anymore," finds Scott taking an assertive vocal worthy of Ernestine Anderson.--Scott Yanow

Donna has the richness and sass of singers like Phyllis Hyman and Angela Bofill, and the sophistication of Nancy Wilson and Sarah Vaughan, while at the same time, having her own, very deliberate style of taste and grace, without waste.- One Step Above Productions

The title cuts slippery flute playing follow a period piece replete with big band support that's expertly sung. Carnival is brightly cast sonically with a progressive musicality. on green Dolphin Street, is a showstopper with whiplash swing.-All About Jazz
