Heart in Another Land

Help bring the next Jim Scott CD to life

Jim3For a number of years, I have nurtured the idea to make my next CD an immersion in Latin, Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms with a bit more of a jazz sensibility, and it is where my heart has been for a long time.  Heart in Another Land refers to my love of these cultures and sounds so suited to my nylon string classical guitar.  There are socially conscious, earth and peace messages, but also some fun.  I’ve recorded demo versions of sixteen new songs and have several more in the works. Once we select the final songs, my renowned ensemble of friends will bring them to life. We see the budget for the recording between $5,000 and $6,000.

Your CD pre-order or other support will help bring this dream to reality. Click here to see how you can help.

Thanks for your support of this work.          In peace,  Jim
