Donna E. Scott
There is something for everyone on Carnival; rumbling and syncopated percussion, floating piano, thick bass, beautiful wistful and evocative ballads, sassy up tempo blues, contemporary jazz, swinging big band tunes, and soulful heartfelt love songs.
Multi GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winning producer Kabir Sehgal writes in the liner notes that "Scotts second CD, Carnival, is an invocation of a deeper sense of thought and emotion, drama and happiness in the listener. The CD encompasses a plethora of genres and traditions, from Brazilian to swing, to blue to pop". He continues, "Carnival is a beautiful display of artistic camaraderie, collaboration, commitment and shared artistic creative vision. Scotts' Carnival is a breathtaking celebration which displays the full range of human emotions. What a range! You will need a tissue to wipe away the tears of sorrow and joy!"
