Donna E. Scott -


A Carpenter from Chicago" reimagines the work of Karen Carpenter with Afro-diasporic tinges (i.e., bebop and modal jazz, afro-pop, second line, funk, R&B, etc.), boldly proclaiming explorations of improvisatory nuances paying homage to past, present expressers of global jazz traditions while offering inspiration for future generations to come. It is an album celebrating cross-generational and cross-cultural artistic intersections with a message of hope, promise, and love. “ (producer, Latin Grammy and Emmy winner Jose Valentino )
