Earth and Spirit Songbook Sell-off:

Bargain price for books – $19

Earth & Spirit Songbook cover

We want to sell off all the existing copies of the Earth and Spirit Songbook we have on hand.  I’ve been working for some months on a revised edition of the Earth and Spirit Songbook that fixes many typos and other things that have frustrated me for a long time.  The new version (which should be out by the end of the year) will improve some of the accompaniments, but will still work with the old books.   (It will amuse a choir to no end to point out the typos). To the untrained eye the new edition will look exactly the same as this serviceable book that has been used for more than a decade.   If you have one, or some, now’s the chance to get a few more for the choir or singing group for  $19 each with FREE SHIPPING, a significant reduction from the list price of $25 – while they last.

One to 8 books – $19 each.  There’s no point in buying 9, because if you order 10 or more books @ $16 each ($160) we’ll give you free shipping.

So this is a great time to supply your choir with this 200 page resource of 110 songs of earth and peace. You can look up extensive description of the book here – song list, composers, thematic index, etc.


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
