WorldMusicMix: Scott Kinsey, Mer Sal-Adjustments

Scott Kinsey, Mer Sal - Adjustments

Adjustments, their forthcoming album, is a vocal recording within a fusion instrumental soundtrack. Says Kinsey, “After working for years with lots of guitarists and saxophonists, I’ve come to realize that the voice is in many ways the most expressive instrument of all.”


He once again achieves his signature vibe, aided and abetted by an amazing roster of musicians. But Sal channels this energy into a more thematic direction, with provocative statements about the transition from darker phases into positive change. The album offers a collection of timely originals, while the duo also reimagines rock classics like “Feel Flows”
(The Beach Boys), “Time Out of Mind” (Steely Dan) and “Down to You” (Joni Mitchell), as well as “Jungle Book,” an iconic Weather Report track penned by Joe Zawinul.

Join Scott Kinsey on the next leg of a three- decade musical journey, at once rooted in electric jazz history and blazing a new path with visionary singer-songwriter Mer Sal.
