Music: Kim Scott

Alabama’s Kim Scott has an impressive résumé as a Classical flautist and educator, but when she comes to Cincinnati this weekend, that side of her split musical persona won’t be on display. 

Alabama’s Kim Scott has an impressive résumé as a Classical flautist and educator, but when she comes to Cincinnati this weekend, that side of her split musical persona won’t be on display. 


With 2011’s Crossing Over album, Scott became a “newcomer” again, transferring her masterful flute abilities to the Smooth Jazz format and quickly earning acclaim for her instrumental takes on R&B/Pop songs by Beyoncé, SWV, Alicia Keys and Chaka Khan. 

This year’s follow-up, Rite of Passage, continued down the R&B-tinged Jazz path, with Scott showcasing more original compositions, as well as her vocal chops on the track “Sweet Obsession.” 

7 and 9 p.m. Saturday. $20 each show. Blue Wisp Jazz Club, 700 Race St., Downtown, thebluewisp.com.
