MUSIC: Jennifer Scott Quartet next up at Whatcom Jazz Music Arts Center

Vancouver, B.C’s Jennifer Scott is a vocalist and pianist who specializes in jazz, blues and world music. She will perform with her husband, Rene Worst, on bass; Josh Cook, tenor sax; and Julian MacDonough, drums, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 3, at The Majestic, 1027 N. Forest St., for the Whatcom Jazz Music Arts Center series.

After a few years of performing and traveling, Scott returned to the studio to record her fourth CD, “Emotional Girl,” produced by her husband. They then teamed up with San Francisco-area saxophonist Kristen Strom, guitarist Scott Sorkin, and drummer Jason Lewis to form Crossing Borders, a new international jazz group that performs and records reworkings of standards and as well as new takes on classic pop tunes. More recent studio work has seen her align her vocal talents with pianist Miles Black, well known to Bellingham jazz aficionados, in the CD release “Storybook.”

Admission is $10 general, $5 students, free for Arts Center members.
