Packing some serious talent, style, and soul in her flute, Kim delivers a powerful and consistent album project with her latest release titled "Crossing Over".
The album opens up with the title track to the project "Crossing Over", a soulful uptempo, hip-hop jazz cut that is perfectly done. Kim's talent as a flutist is evident in this one and she is right on track to make her mark on the world of smooth jazz music....
Kim's version of "Spain" concludes the album well and is an awesome progressive jazz tune that has serious pizazz. If this one doesn't get you going, you don't have a pulse!

I work at the Alabama School of Fine Arts which means every day I am surrounded by extremely gifted artists. I am fortunate enough to have frequent opportunities to see the students of ASFA perform, so if I do start to forget just how talented they are a music recital, a play, a dance performance, a creative writing reading, or an art show opening will remind me. Despite this I often lose sight of just how talented my colleagues are. I forget that these brilliant students got that way because of their brilliant teachers, brilliant teachers like Kimberly Scott.
Scott, who is the chair of ASFA’s music department and a proud ASFA alum, was recently recognized in The Birmingham News as one of the city’s “game changers” for the work she does for Birmingham’s arts community. After reading the article I felt so inspired; I figured I should really have a chat with this woman about all the great things she’s doing to make Birmingham a better place.
