Vancouver vocalist Jennifer Scott brings her trio into the Cellar Jazz Club in her native city this Sunday, April 23rd for a concert performance. Joined by bassist Rene Worst and drummer Bernie Arai, the gifted artist, who also plays piano, will perform her blend of jazz, blues, and world music.

Scott is considered one of Canada’s top jazz artists, and has captured audiences throughout North America for many years. Filling theatres wherever she appears, Jennifer has appeared at Jazz Festivals all across Canada and the United States, performing with such jazz luminaries as: Tommy Banks, Don Thompson, Kenny Wheeler, Skywalk, and Hugh Fraser, to name a few.

Interactive, Jennifer Scott’s self-produced CD, was critically received and has sold more than 1500 copies independently. Jennifer had two subsequent releases: Something to Live By, featuring Jennifer on Vocals, Bob Murphy on Piano, and Rene Worst on bass; and Live at Monk’s featuring Jennifer’s vocals and her debut as a recorded jazz pianist. Rene Worst is, again, featured on bass; and multi-reedist Tom Keenlyside is also featured.

After a few years of performing and traveling, Jennifer returned to the studio to record her fourth CD, Emotional Girl. Produced by her husband, Rene Worst, this CD showcases Jennifer’s expanded emotional, performing, and creative ranges.

Jennifer is also the pianist/vocalist for San Francisco-based Novo Tempo, a Brazilian/jazz Fusion group featuring the music of Ed Johnson. She has recorded 2 CDs and toured extensively with this group, including dates at Dizzy’s in San Diego and Catalina’s in Los Angeles. She was featured with jazz legend Clark Terry, performing with him at the Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver.

Jennifer Scott has also been involved in many New Music and Theatre productions, and was nominated for a Jessie Award for her performance in The War of the Worlds (Rumble Productions) by Alex Ferguson and Peter Hannan, and was critically acclaimed for her performance in The Gang (Vancouver and Toronto) by Tom Cone and Peter Hannan.
